The French -- spit!

Despite their long has-been status as a country of importance, many French people continue to believe that they are a significant factor in the world of today.

These folks still think that their language should be a dominant language among others, and/or even that it should be accepted, period.

Jacques Chirac foolishly made this more than plain, as is evidenced in this post by my friend Raven at And Rightly So.

Speaking of France, another blog friend, GM, has more to say on the subject at GM's Corner.

President Jacques Chirac was shocked to hear a French businessman speaking English at a European Union Summit, but He doesn't get offended when a french-algerian under the R.M.I (French Welfare) ask him a question in Arabic during a political summit!

Steve --

This just might indicate a certain double standard, wouldn't you say?

I would guess that it has something to do with the fact that English speaking people don't respond to criticism by burning cars, blowing up innocent school children and grandmothers and mutilating people whose opinions don't match their own. Muslims, however...
