If there's one area in which the French take a back seat to no one, it's in the realm of surrender and appeasement. We have seen history repeat itself today as French Prime Minister de Villepin announced a series of new and expanded welfare programs to reward the Muslim rioters who have set fire to 300 French cities.
But those heroic Gallic efforts to appease Muslim insurgents aren't coming fast enough to please NBC reporter Jim Maceda.
In a segment airing on this morning's Today show, Maceda, reporting from Paris, proclaimed that the French government is "getting the message" of the disaffected "French youths." But appeasement is simply taking too long for Maceda's taste, as he observed:
"The French government promises a hands-on plan [read: more welfare] for the immigrant areas but that could take years, so even if peace does return to these streets few believe it's going to stick."
Darn it, Jacques and Dominique, you're just going to have to find a way to surrender faster if you expect the MSM to applaud you!
MSM still thinks it matters LOL...
Didn't we (USA) do the same for blacks in the 60's and 70's after they rioted? This is how the welfare state started here. I see no difference between France now and the US then.
There will never be peace as long as there are muslimes.
"There will never be peace as long as there are muslimes."
Were these Muslims DRAGGED to France in irons and chains? Why the HELL didn't they go back to their pathetic countries where everyone is like them??

President Bush has authorized the Joint Chiefs to begin drawing up a battle plan to pull France's ass out of the fire again. With the combined French military, paramiltary and police forces facing an apparently overwhelming force of up to 400 pissed off teenagers, Mr. Bush doubts France's ability to hold off the little pissants. "Hell, if the last two world wars are any indication, I would expect France to surrender any day now", said Bush. Joint Chiefs head, Gen. Peter Pace, warned the President that it might be necessary to send as many as 5 marines to get things under control. The general admitted that 5 marines may be overkill, but 3 were needed to take care of logistical requirements and he wanted to get this thing under control within 24 hours of arriving on scene. He admitted he was having a hard time finding even one marine to volunteer to help those ungrateful bastards out for a third time, but thought that he could persuade a few women marines to do the job before they went on pregnancy leave.
President Bush asked Gen. Pace to get our marines out of France as soon as possible after order was restored. He also reminded Gen. Pace to make sure the marines did not take soap, razors, or deodorant with them, as the less they stand out the better.
