The Lie of Le Monde

Straight to you from a French keyboard in Cannes' American Pavillon.

On May 18, the newspaper of reference printed Une guerre sans justice on its editorial page, in its unrelenting battle to castigate America, its leaders, and its army. Among the combatttants Le Monde has asked to join the holy war to weed out the Bush team's lies is a "philosophe". This is what Monique Canto-Sperber writes at one point, in which she seeks to refute, one by one, the benefits of the Iraq war:
Bring help to the Iraqis? Over 100,000 civilian victims have been counted…
I thought that Le Monde was the forefront of the battle against liars, deceivers, and other tricksters. Apparently, any trick is good in battling those unholy beings, including... lying... deceiving... and using tricks...

Sounds more like 1945 Dresden! The modern media would have a real meltdown over that.
