The French don't seem able to stop the rioting. And the rioters have learnt from the French example of protest against, oh, say for example, US troops in Iraq, that it's the defenders of the peace that are the REAL problem:
one of the dead teens' brothers -- wearing a T-shirt that read "Dead for Nothing" -- said the police were causing trouble, not stopping it.

"The minister of the interior (Nicolas Sarkozy) must get rid of his troops. They are nothing but a provocation. If they go, I think the neighborhoods will remain calm," said the brother, Siaca Traore.
Naturally. If France but cedes any involvement in civil control over the areas in volved in uprising, why, of course, they will immediately cease their activities. In fact, they will, of course, at that point, totally embrace the French values, language, and learn to love EVERYTHING French. But, first, the French have to leave. Their own !@#$%^&*( country.

That'll happen. Right. At the bottom of this post, I'm showing the picture of area affected by the unrest. Do you see what I see? Port cities. Regional centers. The capital. Perhaps the French are consoling themselves that most of France is not affected, but it's clear, even to me, that the - what's the word I'm looking for - INSURGENTS, yeah, that's the word - are in control.

Pity that the French never assimulated them enough to teach them the tune of "The Marseillaise - I've excerpted a short section (English translation) of the anthem:
Tremble, tyrants and traitors
The shame of all good men
Tremble! Your parricidal schemes
Will receive their just reward
Against you we are all soldiers
If they fall, our young heros
France will bear new ones
Ready to join the fight against you
To quote Dick Clark (from American Bandstand) I give it a 9.5 - with a bullet.
