Civil War in France? 

The title to this post may seem a tad hyperbolic, but I'm not the first to use the term "civil war" to describe what is going on in France. Wretchard at Belmont Club has two analytical posts on the subject, both fascinating, here and here.

Reading Wretchard's items, the first thing I thought of was, "What if the Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto had been armed--would the result have resembled the Paris suburbs?" Upon reflection, I think not, because the instant communication afforded by cellphones didn't exist and the Nazis would not have hesitated to bomb the ghetto to dust if the Jews had attacked as these rioters have.

Something to think about: What if France had something like the Second Amendment to the US Constitution?
