Well, That's One Way To Get People To Buy New Chevys And Chryslers

Weasel Zippers dusts off an oldie but a goodie, a story that’s apparently become an staple part of life in 21st century France:

French “Youths” Torch 317 Cars in One Night…

Look on the bright side, France. Muslim “youths” in the UK try and blow them up (usually around crowds of infidels)…..

(ANSAmed) – PARIS, JULY 14Some 317 automobiles were burnt last night in Paris on the eve of Bastille Day. The number of vehicles burned, according to an initial police estimate, was up 6.73% compared to the previous years.

This type of violence and vandalism have become a sort of “fashion” for youths in the hinterlands of large cities during holidays, particularly that at year’s end. On the night of last December 31, a total of 1,147 cars were burned, up 30.64% compared to the previous year.

Fausta Wertz flashes back to previous Car-B-Ques in France and dubs them, “The Never-ending Arson.”

Meanwhile, in other, entirely unrelated news back in the States, Ed Morrissey notes, “Two men charged in Minneapolis terror investigation”, and Ryan Mauro writes that “Intriguing bits of evidence suggest that a major terrorist attack was thwarted on June 4″ at Tampa International Airport.
