If your friend’s analysis is right, the French should try to out-hawk America on Syria where — absent our present concerns in Iraq — the French have more vested interests than us anyway.

But, one need not share your gloom to be pessimistic about the prospects of the French government to come to its senses. I would have to bet that this riot will pay off enormously for Muslim radicals in and out of France.
