EU Riots- It's Gone Global

Rioting has spread into Germany and Belgium. Rioters are now burning schools in France. The warfare shows the "rioters" are armed and organized. The police have asked the French government to bring in the army. Mr. de Villepin ruled out bringing in the military, saying, "We have not reached that point."

Writes Thomas Sowell:

No one should have been shocked. There are people who will not stop until they get stopped -- and much of the media, the political classes, and the cultural elites of the West cannot bring themselves to even criticize, much less stop, the dangers or degeneracy among groups viewed sympathetically as underdogs.

Mark Steyn calls the riots "a rather shrewd and disciplined campaign". While this is a major story, my NYC local CBS morning news show barely covers it and still cannot identify the rioters except to call them "youths" for the 12th straight day.

The NYT in their report today used the term "Muslim" twice regarding websites that are preaching continuation of this war. The NYT report describes the riots as "civil unrest". They refer to the rioters as "largely of West African and North African origin where the unrest has grown." As if Henri and Jacques is among the "scum" as Sarkozy called them. And why are people leaving the NYT and MSM generally in droves?
