Hardships in Afghanistan and Guantánamo? Better than French Projects and French Prisons!
The situation in France's cités and jails has gotten so bad that even Plantu is taking potshots at them, comparing them unfavorably (!) to …Afghanistan and Guantánamo!
In Tuesday's Le Monde, two French soldiers "somewhere in Afghanistan" say to one another "Don't complain! We could have been transferred to France… to certain cités" (to certain urban projects).
Under the heading "There is a life after Guantanamo" in Wednesday's Le Monde, a French inmate taking leave of the Cuban base detention center for other horizons says: "Anywhere will do, as long as it isn't a French prison!"
