President Biden has managed to anger France so badly that they are now floating suggestions of “treason.”
Australia shocked the west by ditching a multi-billion dollar submarine deal with France in favor of a deal with the United States and the United Kingdom.
France’s minister for Europe, Clément Beaune, lashed out at all parties involved with the new deal saying, “Our British friends explained to us that they were leaving the EU to create Global Britain. As you can see, it is a return to the American fold and accepting a form of vassal status.”
For President Joe Biden, these comments are just more headache for an administration overseeing a devolving international scene.
France is now furious with the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. At a time when both Russia and China are growing their influence, this situation is a disaster.
