    Default French Riots

    I have a strange sense of apathy about their plight.

    Me too. Feel bad for the police, fire, and EMS having to deal with the results of the failure of the French government to take care of its citizens, especially the poor in society that their great socialist way is supposed to be looking out for.

    Sadly, this socialist ideology is deeply entrenched in the hearts of many in our own country, despite its failings.

    I've got a question.

    If we're such an ignorant, intolerant, unenlightened bunch of xenophobics like the european (and liberal America) elite suggest then why aren't there riots in our streets?

    Like George said. Screw France.

    I just read a story about how some idiot politician over there, who is running for Pres., basically called the rioters "scum" and told them to "biring it on"!

    I guess the future headline of 2029 about Jamaica taking over France is starting early. Jamaica or any other small county.

    There's a lot of French Chapters in my motorcycle club.(Wind&Fire) The friendship and words of support from those guys after 9-11 was overwhelming. And after the nose thumbing that Chirac gave the US, one of the guys wrote a message stating that overall policy of their govt, was very much different than the thinking of the average Joe on a hoseline in France. And that the majority of the people there remember, and thank the US for all we have done for them. The date of this message was on the 60th anniversary of the Normandy invasion btw. So,,,,Chirac can stick it in his crack as far as I'm concerned. He's getting a little taste of the terrorism that he lambasted us for as we were working to fight against it. I just ask the man upstairs to watch over those brothers of ours doing their very best in a very bad situation.

    Ah yes. The Simpsons. Not a finer piece of Americana to be found.

    The writers are not exactly friends of France.

    I just hope that the folks on the line are safe. It seems that overnight the "scum" began firing shotgun rounds at the police. How wonderful. Especially since firearms ownership is restricted under the wonderful Socialist system that they have there.

    Remember why the streets of Paris are lined with trees, The Germans liked to march in the shade.

    I'm with George..SCREW THE FRENCH.

    The major difference was that we were able to back it up. Nice try, though.

    Baisez les personnes arrogantes de barrage de la France......, comme pour frapper le peuple qui les a aidés et puis tourne et aide des terroristes de port. Ils n'ont pas besoin d'être d'accord avec nous, mais n'aident pas des enemys de l'humanité et puis ne s'attendent pas au traitement juste sur les étapes du monde

    Am I the only one who thinks there is more behind this than what is being seen? Me thinks somebody or some group may be orchestrating this.

    Most people here are pretty smart I shouldnt have to mention any names.

    Most of the Muslims in France went there from Morroco and Libya. Many of them are poorly educated and believe anything the Imams tell them.

    If you look at the history of the problems in other Muslim nations... it's the same story.. you can trace the problems to the Imams.

    I guess hating America wasn’t enough to keep the Muslim radicals from acting up in France. What a surprise.

    It wont surprise me if the people in France end up saying this was all because of America and the war in Iraq.

    There is or will be radical Islamic support in this area of France. You can count on it.
