Fire this woman now

From the print edition of today's WSJ:
It's never fun to rattle a cup around, so there was a sense of relief when France's defense minister raised her hand at a meeting in response to NATO Secretary-General George Robertson's plea for more helicopters in Afghanistan. That is, until Michele Alliot-Marie let drop this diplomatic pleasantry: "I have a helicopter for you, Lord Robertson. I will send you a plastic model of one for Christmas."
