Riots in Paris

Well, the French are certainly getting what they asked for.

I'm having a hard time feeling much sympathy for them in this matter...... It was inevitable, considering the positions (or more accurately, a lack thereof)they have taken on the issue of radical Muslims.

All I can say is I predicted this years ago......you reap what you sow....and get a perverted sense of joy from watching that on TV too somehow....I guess its sort of Payback for the Oil for Food bribes I guess.

Ever seen those neighbourhoods? They are getto's of the worst kind, no native French are living there anymore, all African immigrants, natural breeding places for extremism. It's plain poverty, discrimination and racism that's fuelling the riots. Similar to what happened in Los Angeles in '92.

But to be on the safe side, perhaps consider putting the Marines on alert to be ready to evacuate all those poor American tourists. Yeah: Chinooks over the Champs Elysee, Cobra's over the Seine, and HumVee's in Rue Rivoli. Merveilleuse !!

Mike.. what does this riot have anything to do with the "radical muslims"? I am assuming, since you are hinting at it... by "radical muslims" you mean those who are sympathetic or affiliated with terrorism/Al Qaida. Two youn men/boys were killed or died of injuries that the folks there believe were caused by the Police. This is story sounds a lot more like the riots that were down here in Cincinatti than a case of "muslim radicals". As someone mentioned earlier already... this is common behavior in the ghetto where social problems are high and respect for authority is low.

That's because the Sox aren't a college team!

Now if they were in Madison on Halloween...

i never did care for the french.

anyone who studies history will notice that the french are above average in terms of self-importance, arrogance, and snobbishness.

you reap what you sow. it serves them right.

don't get me started on this subject. ugh.
