Last night, I had an interesting phone conversation with my younger sister. For the record, my sister is strongly anti-war, vociferously anti-Bush, and in general, embodies the antithesis of my beliefs in the political process. However, we both share a recent disdain of the French. Despite the fact that they share her anti-war sentiments (she considers them hypocritcal, as they aren't anti-war when it suits their interests), she considers their attitude towards the United States (and all countries which agree with us) to be incredibly arrogant. I believe her exact choice of words was "Who the f*** do they think they are?" The French are going to be in for a rude awakening if they don't pull it together and realize that the Earth doesn't revolve around Paris. When even a die-hard lefty pacifist like my sister has had too much French arrogance, there is a startling change of perception that the French are an impediment to peace.
