FIGHTING THE FROGS....Loads of people have been linking to Tom Friedman's latest column, the one headlined "Our War With France," in which he says flatly, "France is becoming our enemy."

You'd think this would be enough for the Europhobes, but no. Glenn Reynolds tsk tsks Friedman for his "mild tone" (!) and then makes a suggestion of his own:

For a start, we should start encouraging pro-democracy movements in Francophone Africa. And arming them. But that's just a start.

I wish I could think of something appropriate to say about the idea that we should encourage and support shooting wars against France, but words fail me. What's next?
