European Union

Here's an interesting commentary on the recent upset of the European constitution: Betrayed ... By the French!

My German colleagues were all teary eyed today. All voiced their resentment of "another French betrayal." Make no mistake about it, the majority of Germans continue to hold the French in contempt, and display antipathy for anything French. Jacques Chirac and Gerhard Schroder may appear on television as "best buddies," but the typical German man or woman on the street harbors no love for the French. One young German man that I know told me, "Sabotaging the EU Constitution is a serious betrayal to the German nation, and the whole of Europe. We won't soon forget this, but we should have known. Afterall, we are dealing with France here. The French are our traditional enemies."
