    Damn! Isn't printing such slander illegal in France? I'm surprised that Jacques hasn't sent in a SWAT team to shut down this pack of depraved demagogues.

    Yeah that's quiet surprising...I think Le Monde is a right wing newspaper, so it's more likely to come out with something like this than other newspapers...
    Ps: As far as I know the "Le Monde" headquarter hasn't beenransacked by Chirac yet...lol

    "Le Monde" is rather a left wing newspaper and Chirac is for sure right wing and liberal.

    Whatever your side, "Le Monde" has the reputation of being well informed, honest and very complete. On the other side it is very long to read and sometimes quite complex.

    In fact, I think that whatever your political color, anyone in France know that the recent tendency has been to radicalize their position with the US foreign politics.

    They know that both countries share the same point of view about how the world should be. Sometimes, they disagree of the way to get it.

    In that matter, they are glad to show that they share the same point of view.
