According to a Los Angles Times article, Putin, Chirac, Schroeder seek to mend fences with America. Excerpt: Andrei Piontkovsky, director of the Independent Institute for Strategic Studies, a Moscow think tank, said Chirac's statements were "clearly an attempt to mend fences with the U.S. after the protracted standoff in the international arena. ... France and Germany are now racing each other trying to be the first one who asks the U.S. for forgiveness for having misbehaved," he said. "Today France and Germany are like pigeons who want to snatch a bit of the prey killed by hawks. They want contracts in the post-(Saddam) Iraq and are ready to work hard to get them."
