No Fare

It's too late, the war is already here.

UPDATE: Media claims "relatively calm" night in France.

Yeah, sure... maybe compared to the siege of Stalingrad.

Of course, France does have a longstanding and shameful history of raising the white flag to anyone who appears to be a threat. I can't think of anywhere else in the world, where you could have 300 cars torched by angry Muslim mobs in one night and still try to pass it off as a public nuisance.
Marauding youths torched two public buses, and in troubled neighborhoods around the country, youths set fire to a total of 277 vehicles, police said. On an average night in France, up to 100 cars are torched by bands of youths. In a statement, the Interior Ministry described the night as "relatively calm."
Maybe Taliban Jack can organise a neighbourhood watch to deal with the problem when it hits Canadian shores.

UPDATE: 29 Oct 2006 - Relatively calm, my french-fried ass
Three or four young people burst onto the bus and tossed in a bottle of flammable liquid before fleeing, police said, citing witnesses' accounts. A fire started, seriously injuring a 26-year-old woman who suffered second- and third-degree burns on her arms, legs and face.

The woman was breathing Sunday with help from a respirator, the Marseille hospital system said. Doctors were deeply worried about lung damage from smoke. Three other people also were treated for smoke inhalation, police said. The bus was destroyed, and bus service was suspended in Marseille.
Remember that old war movie they'd show occasionally on late night weekends, "Is Paris Burning?"

My gut says, it soon will be.

LAST WORD: It'll have to be someone else, I'm speechless
You run from police...You accidentally get electrocuted while hiding from police at an electrical substation...You get a monument built in your honor!
