"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

France doesn't think Comrade Bob is all that bad, apparently. He will be invited to a summit of African leaders in Paris.

French Foreign Ministry spokesman says France is aware of British sentiment. "We understand the emotion of the British population," he said. However, he says France has the "firm conviction" it is acting properly in inviting President Mugabe to the February 20-21 summit of African heads of state.

Forget any convictions and morality. Not to mention that pesky EU travl ban on Zimbabwean officials. The French government has just given up.
