You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

I've already mapped out my trip from the Western highway entries to the cities to hotels in the centres. Maybe I'm different though - I just don't see a reason why France would issue such a warning in the first place.

I actually want all the French people possible to visit the south side of Chicago.

I would think O'Hare alone would warrant a travel warning.
I've been there a few times, wasn't very impressed (the french should just visit paris instead), but didn't sense it was dangerous.

Why should it be surprising that a foreign government would do what our government does warning its citizens about problem areas in the area that they may visit.
