French Riots (2)

American Imperialist wonders why French authorities are not keen to deploy the 'Grande Armee' to prevent further riots. Would they really drop their rifles again?

How far has poor public transport and unemployment contributed to the riots? Strange Stuff suggests education has a signifcant role to play.

Do Muslim schools in the UK threaten similar problems in the future?

A study of what led to the great riots that Victory Hugo wrote about in Les Miserables will help, I think. The "underclass" is different, but no less vocal!

There have been "race" riots in the UK, the US, Canada, and Italy in recent years which are not really about race, but rather, about poverty.

I love your blog....it is eclectic.
