John J. Miller over at The Corner reminds us all, especially those who like frog gigging, of a great quote from an outstanding book:
"Time and again in the last two centuries, France has refused to come to grips with its diminished status as a country whose greatest general was a foreigner, whose greatest warrior was a teenage girl, and whose last great military victory came on the plains of Wagram in 1809."

Seriously though. Do not underestimate national psychological insecurity's affect on their decisions. When you wonder, "What is France's problem?", remember that.
