    Juppe said France will wait no longer than May 5 and Sarkozy is obviously trying to score diplomatic points before the second round run-off on May 6. The Libyan intervention initiated by Britain and France was quite successful and Sarkozy is more willing to use force now to boost his waning popularity as only talking tough on immigration is not good enough and he has to pull out all the stops to avert the impending defeat.

    It means stop watching tv, go to school, read a book, walk in the park, learn a new language, plant a garden, talk to people from other places and all over the world.

    thats what it means...

    or we could just say that playing dumb doesnt mean **** when youre talking to people that actually know what they're talking about.

    I know it's popular to play the "French are all cheese-eating surrender monkeys" card, but that stereotype doesn't exactly mesh with reality.
