More Anti-American Cartoon Fun in

More Anti-American Cartoon Fun in Le Monde

Note America as rapacious serpent (grabbing Iraqi oil) and the gratuitous reference to "I Love NY." Kofi Annan says "we only made a few concessions" to which Dominique responds "that's for sure."

UPDATE: Thanks to Merde in France for this nuance:

"To our English language readers, the 'joke' of the cartoon is that Annan and Villepin are eating crow. In French, you do not eat crow, you 'swallow vipers'."
