Reading Ralph Peters column made me wonder if we shouldn't come down on the side of the rioters. Are we not in the business of bringing liberty to oppressed Muslims? Do we not need to compete with the Islamists for hearts and minds? Is France not a disgusting cesspool of bigotry and anti-American sentiment? Should we not continue to wrong foot the left and leave them cheering for yet another foul tyranny? We need to pick sides. Viva les beures.
