    Update on looming French civil war

    Back in this thread I posted about the French police saying they were in the beginning of a civil war.

    This is just an update on the situation. Take from it what you want. I still stand by my assertion that France is in deep trouble. I also wish them good luck surviving. The US isn't going to be able to save their bacon this time.

    I am totally down with like, violent revolution for good purposes.

    I don't believe religion to be a good purpose.

    The first thing I thought when I saw this thread was 'how would they know who to surrender to?'

    France's problems all stem from deep-rooted local social problems, largely tied to the aftermath of an irresponsible immigration policy followed by social alienation of foreigners. It has nothing to do with the War on Terror, this would be going on even if 9/11 had never happened and Osama & Co. had decided to go form a D&D club instead. Of course, people always use the language of religion (or ideology) to define their struggle, even when it has nothing to do with it (and it almost never does). So yes, you'll hear the morons chanting "Allah Akbar". Just as the Catholics said "for the glory of God" (or whatever it was) when they were butchering the Waldensians.

    I suppose you also think the IRA are religious fanatics and the Troubles are all the fault of the evil religion of Catholicism.

    LOL, I love it. Irony kills, folks.
    Nice to see they have right-wing douchbags in France too. Maybe we aren't so different (except for the "work" thing).
    And to top it off, this quote if the goddamn funniest thing I've heard all month. Great thread, Smeg. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Yes, angry Muslim rioters are indeed the masters of irony.

    Oh by the way, Smeg; I don't recall you putting your money where your mouth is. What was my bet again, US$100 or US$200? I forget. Let's say $200.

    This isn't new, smeggy. This story is 50 years old and nothing's happened so far. Did the Nazis take over Germany, back when they were pulling the same stuff in the early and mid 90s? Nope, it was just a phase. I think I'll wait and see before believing any dire predictions of doom.

    dondrei's fair to assume that - 10 chars would've typoed that too.

    Were the Minorites a cult? I assumed the name was associated with the Fransiscan Order (as in "the lesser brothers"). Oh well, live and learn. I am hardly the master of English terminology even inside my own field of questionable expertise.

    Did you know that camels milk is probably the best milk ever? Second only to yaks milk maybe.
