    They're finally enforcing curfews! Finally, an admission that things are out of control!

    Excellent article, Bonnie. I think the Chirac government, in handling this revolt as a police action, is making all the same mistakes the Clinton Administration did in the 1990s by handling the attacks on Americans and American property as police actions.

    Heck, the French considered the invasion of their capitol in WW II by the Germans as a police action!

    Time for another crusade, this time, instead of getting Jerusalem back from the heathen hoard, let's settle for Paris

    BTW...

    George W. Bush phoned Jacque Chirac about the situation in his country and said "Ayatollah you so!" :):)

    I can't believe some people. I was listening to the TV when I heard something like '...and what they need to do is listen to these troubled folks. Maybe if the French government could understand their frustration, they could initiate options for the people - allow them to make better choices.'

    Cave? Cave in the face of violence? Why does that not surprise me, coming from the French.

    Kill them. Arrest them. Do what it takes.

    They ought to do a remake of "American in Paris" but instead of being a musical, it'll be an action picture with Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Ahhhhnold

    Are you gloating? Yeah, me too!
