Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin, speaking in parliament, expressed these views on global terrorism:
“Against terrorism, what’s needed is not a war. It is, as France has done for many years, a determined fight based on vigilance at all times and effective cooperation with our partners.
“But we will only end this curse if we also fight against injustice, violence and these crises,” he said.
[Villepin’s comments came a day after George Bush admitted another lie, this time about the CIA’s use of secret foreign prisons.]
