What France's Bush-Bashers Like to (Loudly) Denounce and What They Prefer to (Conveniently) Overlook

It is entertaining to observe the embarrassment of France's Bush-bashers, overrepresented in the French press and foreign ministry
notes Ivan Rioufol.
If they accuse the Americans of being the root cause of insecurity in the Middle East and of having awakened terrorism, they [France's Bush-bashers] forget to mention that they [the Americans] are even more certainly at the root of the region's democratization and that they have fanned the flames in the peoples' desire for emancipation.
(Naturally, the "entertainment" applies to many of the Bush-bashers who leave comments on our site as well…)
