French Delusions Of Grandeur

A very interesting read on the foundations of current French foreign policy can be found here. Needless to say, the emphasis is on neutralizing what the article postulates as Anglo-American hegemony (possibly aligning with les Allemands against French interests), and ignores utterly the impact of French missteps in Indochina, Algeria and Morocco, which in a large way formed many of the problems this world faced and continues to face today. Does the name Ho Chi Minh ring a bell? Importing all of those gastarbeiter into France to do the scutwork and turning les banlieus into recruiting grounds for splodeydopes (ref. The Barbarians At The Gates Of Paris)? A long read but worth it to understand the French weltanschung.

I'll say it before and I'll say it again. Les Francais sont cochons.
