We turn to France, whose decision to stay out of the Iraq war is starting to make more sense. After all, why go all the way to the Mideast when you can fight Muslims in your very own suburbs?
The streets of the suburb of Clichy-sous-Bois have been filled with angry, mostly unemployed Arab and African immigrants setting fire to hundreds of cars. Their message: We're mad as hell, and we're not going to let you park here anymore.
Night after night of rioting and looting and burning cars, but don't worry because the French government is working around the clock to figure out a way to blame it on us.
The riots in France have been through their second week. No signs of slowing. Now first of all, let me congratulate the French on whatever sporting event they apparently won.
The situation is really bad today Chirac announced that the French are pulling out of France.

The WH needs to remember that a significant majority of those polled get their "news" from Late Night Comedy. Stewart "gets it". How about more of the same?
LOL!! Leno's is the best...
Stewart DOES NOT get it, he's a flaming liberal ignoramus who only said it for laughs. He's anti-military and anti-Bush to the core, don't be fooled.
Locally called Clichy-sur-Jungle.
I agree with you. The only way Stewart and his ilk will get it is when the battle comes to their neihborhood AND they are personally affected. Anything less than that and it the same old liberal tripe from that group.
The joke is on the French. They let all these foreigners in, and now they are PAYING BIG.
Oops, that sounds just like the USA!!! Open borders all the way --- hmmmm, a sign of the future?

Welcome to FR
Just bought a bumber sticker on line:
"My honor student beat up France."
My husband just said the rioting is still going on because the French can't find anyone to surrender to.
Well duh. It's a freakin' comedy show. And you call him the ignoramus.
Do you read the entire thread or just respond to post out of context?
