Now as we enter day 13 of rioting in France… the French finally admit it is an emergency. Hundreds of people were arrested last night, which lessened the destruction by about half. 600 cars and several business still burned despite the curfew and police actions.Apparently the mulism youths are using blogs, cel phones, and text messages to coordinate their efforts and evade police. Time will tell if the new measures will put out this firey outrage or simply slow its spread… as copycat riots have begun to spring up in Germany.
I heard someone on the radio ask “So, when the insurgency in Iraq becomes less than the insurgency in France… does that mean we’ve won?”
