President Sarkozy, as head of state, presided over the funeral of the three murdered soldiers shot down in cold blood in the street in Montauban and Toulouse.
He rallied the French people to honor their fallen heroes, who died defending their country and the French people.
It was a somber, very moving, deeply felt tribute.
At this moment, the cowardly suspect is holed up in his rathole, surrounded by French riot police, who are determined to wait him out in this siege that has lasted more than a day.
It eerily recalls the incident of Sarko and HB, the human bomb, who took a kindergarten in Neuilly hostage, while Sarko was Mayor.
This is a man with nerves of steel, unshakeable determination and moral courage.
May God be with the French people as they fight the homegrown enemy in their midst.
I like Sarko too. And the LePens have been anti-Semetic in the past, no?
We all, Jews, Christians, Hindus, Atheists, we all better realize we have a common enemy.
We really seem not to get that yet.
(Not those of us here on FR, we do get it, but those others, they are not getting it, not digging it, not groking it at all.)
