A suggestive comparison indeed. Only a fool would have faith in Schroeder
and Chirac. And I make a prediction now. France will never use its veto
against the USA.
My knowledge though of the 39 period is limited to books! I just have a
feeling now that there is a real depth to this anti-war movement which has
caught everyone by surprise. Perhaps it is greater than in the 30s.
I see the anti-war tide as another manifestation of a deep anti-system
feeling which has gripped the youth of the world. this has shown up in
various guises - anti-globalisation, anti-capitalism etc.
The hegemony of the powerful is slipping and they are increasingly being
driven to rely on force or power without virtue as the Japanese put it.
