unreal - France awards La Legion d'Honneur to Saudi Prince

One would like to think this is a misprint and should have read Legion d'Horreur.  The only plausible explanation is that Saudi Arabia wants to build nuclear bombs because Iran is now going to do that, and France wants to sell the Saudis nuclear technology.

France has been accused of devaluing its highest national honour after the Legion d'Honneur was quietly awarded to the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia on a visit to Paris.

The French government was among the most vocal outside the Middle East in its condemnation of Saudi mass executions earlier this year, calling the kingdom’s killing of 47 people “deeply deplorable”.

Yet almost two months to the day after that statement was issued, President François Hollande awarded his nation’s most prestigious award to the heir to the Saudi throne, Prince Mohammed bin Naif.
