  Who will cry for the French


Is it wrong for me to take the slightest bit of relish in the current travails of our Oh So Sophisticated Betters, the French.
Unilateralism, Pre-Emptive Strikes, Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my. Of course the French will always get a free pass, what do you do, other than wish them the worst of luck.

Mail Tribune :: Online Edition: "ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast (AP) -- As club-wielding mobs surged through Ivory Coast's largest city hunting for foreigners, national figures urged them on: 'Rise up against French imperialism.' 'Sever the umbilical cord.' 'If I find my French man, I will eat him.'

The hatred broadcast on television and radio - even cell phone text messages - poured out incendiary viciousness not heard since Rwanda's 1994 genocide, U.N. officials and Western diplomats say.

The hate messages were banned by U.N. Security Council decree this week, but the government defends them as the cries of a people under attack"
