France's Sarkozy Says Wouldn't Back Military Strike On Iran
PARIS (AP)--French presidential candidate Nicolas Sarkozy said Monday he wouldn't join up with the U.S. if it decided to carry out military action against Iran.
He said he approved U.N. sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program "and has seen that they are working."
"The municipal elections were a failure for the Iranian president," Sarkozy told RMC radio. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad suffered a setback in December's municipal elections.
"When you see what's happening in Iraq..." he said, trailing off. France was a leading opponent of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. Sarkozy said U.S. hints that it hadn't ruled out military action in Iran were "useless posturing."
well at least he can't be accused of being a poodle... so far
