A "non" vote to the European Constitution would weaken the EU and benefit the United States, warned French President Jacques Chirac. Chirac said that France and Europe would, in the future, face other super powers such as the United States, China, Russia and even Brazil and the rest of Latin America.
Get used to it Jacques, soon you won't even be able to push the Ivory Coast around.
The French will vote May 29 in a national referendum if they should support the European constiturion. For the moment, the "non" appears to have a slight edge.
