F&R Cartoon: Bastille Day

Bastille Day '08
Great march this morning on Champs-Élysées, I wonder if Syrian President in the official stand ended with an indigestion of UN forces back from Lebanon, as he coldly applauded St-Cyr-Coëtquidan's trainee-officers who had choose for their promotion the name of one of the French Peacekeepers killed in the bomb attack his country organized.

I'm glad Mrs Ingrid Bétancourd felt "too tired" to sit down with the various dictators and human rights crushers.

I believe it's the 1st time foreign authorities are invited to attend the march from the official stand. Sarkozy could have invited European leaders, and probably countries' whose soldiers marched with the UN forces (over 20 nationalities yesterday).

But he has a Great Design: to unit countries around the Mediterranean Sea. At first he thought of European countries which have a southern coast, Middle-East and North-Africa. Of course our partners of North and East Europa protested, feeling put apart. So it became a Slightly Modified Great Design :oD, whole Europe and other Mediterranean countries... Sarkozy had all of them dramatically invited to France right on Bastille Day week.

Only Khadafi refused to come. Too bad! He could have erected his tent right beside the stand, and adorne it with a piece of the French DC10 he has had shot down (with several hundreds of civilian citizens killed).

This little note because I know many people outside Europe aren't aware of France and its partners' politics.
