Sarkozy to end France’s 40-year Nato feud

This is big news… this is as big as they come… the end of Gallic exception? Great!!

The question is: why now? Rejoining NATO comes at a cost that is not only monetary. But since we’re talking about it, why should France decide to spend money to rejoin Nato now that it, like all other nations around the world, needs every penny they can scrounch-up to counter the financial crisis?
