Former French President Jacques Chirac Dies aged 86

My Deepest condolences to the proud nation of France and for the family & friends of former President Jaques Chirac known as Le Bulldozer a nickname given to him by Prime Minister Georges Pompidou for his knack of getting things done. Let’s also remember that President Chirac was the leading voice against the Bush administration policy objective to overthrow Saddam Hussein’s led government in Iraq threatening to veto any new Security Council resolution that authorised the use of force though his efforts turned in vain as US commissioned war on Iraq as we all know. He also had a long/distinguished career as a public servant since 1962 and was recipient of honorary awards and highest decorations from countries across the globe.

May he RIP and remembered for his many achievements and more importantly for his integrity as a politician, a precious virtue in this day and age.
