              Dealing With the French
John Miller, author of Our Oldest Enemy: A History of America's Disastrous Relationship with France, argues that we shouldn't get angry at France. After all, they are acting the way they have always acted. The proper way to deal with them is to simply ignore them.
Moreover, making an example of the French is precisely the wrong approach because it elevates France in the eyes of the world's anti-Americans, who will always be with us. The one thing France and the neo-Gaullists can't possibly abide is being ignored. Perhaps that's punishment enough.
