Okay, I Take It Back

France will be by the side of the oppressed of the world. This is the message of France; this is the identity of France; this is the history of France. ~Nicolas Sarkozy

Does he actually believe that?  If he does, that’s pretty scary.  Do the French actually believe that he believes that?  I assume they regard it as yet another dose of pompous rhetoric.  We can only hope that he is entirely insincere.
