Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
How about France - very corrupt power establishment with cozy relationships to the business elite. A media even more in hock to the elite than the US media. A system of government tailor made for a war criminal who came to power in a military coup against a democratic government, and where the president is very much an elected monarch. A state where the legislature is weak, and the upper house is a travesty of democracy even worse than the US Senate. Perhaps the French should stop lecturing Americans and solve their own problems.

Or perhaps we can stop the ridiculously one sided portrayals and criticize problems in both countries without the annoying flame baiting ad patriem attacks.
