Advice Jacques Chirac can ignore
A few weeks ago, the American right was unanimous that the French riots reflected the inevitable doom of Europe due to its morphing into Eurabia. Now the Wall Street Journal (free link with reg.) offers a new diagnosis -- not enough torture:
The danger here [outrage towards Condi] is less to America -- which will continue to protect itself in any case -- than it is to Europe. The phony outrage over American anti-terror practices will only make it harder for European governments to take the actions required to stop terror on their soil -- witness French paralysis in the wake of the recent riots.
One approach to being stuck in a moral cesspool is to try and pull others in.
