The French: "Don't execute Saddam si vous plait!"
Molotov cocktail,the local drink
And all she wants to do is dance
They mix them up right in the kitchen sink
And all she wants to do is dance
Crazy people walking around with blood in their eyes
And all she wants to do is dance,dance,dance
Wild-eyed pistol wavers who ain't afraid to die
And all she wants to do is
All she wants to do is dance,dance
And make romance
Apparently, Don Henley fans abound in France.

(Overwhelmingly superior firepower and the willingness to use it is the only proven peace solution.)
Well, we already knew it was bad, but this is the most detailed description yet of the horrors the French have bred in their cites.
Strangely, I think of the innocent stories I read as a boy and then read to my children: Babar.
The French imagined that their civilization was so superior, that even elephants and monkeys would imitate it. They would immediately head for the nearest store and buy themselves civilized clothing, then go home and build a civilization just like France.
They were mistaken.

The date might be the most eye opening thing about this article. He was a long way ahead of the pack on this one.

Theodore Dalyrmple is about 80 or something like that - and it shows (in a good way). His prose style is incomparable.
But this was 'uncivilized'.

The old slums were thought to produce all sorts of treats, human and otherwise. But now these socialist concrete slums produce new, politicized threats. Furthermore, the new designed slums have politial and economic patrons in the concrete supplier, glass repair companies, those companies that get contracts for remodeling, even the police and firemen are given work. The worse it gets, the more money to be gotten.
This is the future of socialist economies, creating, increasing and profiting from misery. No longer will money be made from just mysterious forces of the old days. Now the modern socialistic state can create slums, at profit, and the slums breed human problems which created more jobs and contracts. Think of these multi storied buildings as huge chicken coops. Instead of chickens people. Instead of eggs, degenerated humans guaranteed to produce decades of problems and contracts.

The muslims have done with their religion and babies what Hitler did with tanks and infantry, namely take over and destroy a country.

I saw Segolene Royal on the French news tonight. She is the un-Hillary ..polished, articulate, smart. No less a hard core Leftist than her French counterpart.
Sego would lead France into an abyss ten times worse than that described in the above article. Totally unprepared to deal with the reality of Islamists on the march.
Prayers going up for Sarkozy.
