Article copyMr. Bush, addressing students on Wednesday and talking about the eastern european countries which are about to join NATO, said:
(...) those with fresh memories of tyranny know the value of freedom.
This is the President of the longest standing democracy in the world speaking.
I like the man. No, really.
Here in the Nation of Voltaire (the slave merchant?), we never hid our nauseant attraction to the totalitarian temptation [somewhere between Robespierre the instigator of the French Revolution Terror, inspirer of the Bolshevik and Khmer ones, and Pétain catalysing the french anti-semitism by purveying concentration camps], we have a crook who ran for presidency to avoid legal prosecutions, was elected as the lesser of two evils and keeps exposing our asses to Islamo fascist terrorists and dictators alike in order to protect France's weapon sales to rogue states until their stockpile is full.
So they can start bombing us to stone age.
But he keeps telling us that we are the "Motherland of Human Rights" so it's OK, we have nothing to fear.
As for the rest, I guess the french people have no, or very little, memories.
