Good Game, Mister Hollande. And never mind, Brazil is neither a serious country (and Germany is too serious to play with France), but you might find serious Asian military aircraft manufacturers to cooperate with, or maybe aggressive Petromonarks to play serious Dassault (Systemes ?) aerogames with.
After all, Brazil cannot afford it, and doesn’t need it, and never has seriously envisaged purchasing it, but your plane is of course the best in the world in its class (no one can seriously say that the Rafale is not the very best and 100% most state of the art, made in France, so French, military aircraft nowadays), dont ever let anybody tell you, that the Concorde-bis will not sell better than the real thing, unless France, and the world change a lot, for the better, or the (lords of) wars.
Don’t ever let anybody tell you, that France doesn’t have the best of the bests, and most combative, and bolder French minister of defence.
Don’t ever let anybody tell you, that the French Foreign Trade minister is the laughing stock (doesn’t “ARF” mean “ouarf” in globbish ?) of the real world.
Don’t underestimate your own ability as an English speaking salesman (HEC means Hautes Etudes Commerciales, after all) for French luxury goodies (DSK, another HEC graduate, was better for buying luxury goodies), with this new French Economic Diplomacy of yours.
Don’t underestimate your de Funes style talent for French Diplomacy in Arab countries.
Good French, though not serious, game.
