"No one has the right to sully France's diplomacy so easily"

"I don't think you can cast a stain on French diplomacy"
protested Dominique de Villepin.
Prime minister Dominique de Villepin of France said claims that two former high-ranking diplomats exploited the corruption-riddled UN Iraqi oil for food programme should not be allowed to sully the reputation of French democracy.
All the French who reserved their smirks, mockery, and disgust for the Bush administration's real reasons for whatever action (or lack therof) it took with regards to Iraq and Saddam Hussein, how will they react now?

All the French declarations of pride ("au moins Chirac avait les couilles de s'opposer à Bush"), what will they be sounding like from now on?

All the French laughing at stupid patriotic Americans blinded by their government, how are they behaving now?
