Attacks Against la France?
They're by Republicans, bien sûr

In its email newsletter, Le Monde links to (thus inviting its readers to visit the site [notice to anyone wanting to pass on a message]). It does so with these words: "Attacks by the Republicans against la France: American internet users express their opinions."

Notice how it is taken as a given that if any attacks are made on France, it can only be the work of (partisan) Republicans, nay not of Republicans, of the Republicans, as a (knee-jerk, non-thinking) entity… Meaning that the internet users defending France are in all probability Kerry supporters, nice and rational and sophisticated and visionary and all…
