Folie de Grandeur Watch Delusions

Folie de Grandeur Watch

Delusions aplenty over at Le Figaro.

Sample graf: "...le problŹme pour Jacques Chirac, aujourd'hui, est de transformer sa popularité dans le monde en influence sur le cours de l'Histoire. Quelle capacité a- t-il d'imprimer sa marque sur le destin de l'Irak ?....Il a moralement gagné la guerre. Reste, concrŹtement, ą ne pas perdre la paix."

Translation: "The problem for Jacques Chirac, today, is to transform his popularity in the world into influencing the course of History. What capacity does he have to make his mark on the destiny of Iraq?...He morally won the war. What's left...is to not lose the peace."

Oh my.
