The Powerlessness of French Arrogance

Remember the Jan. 9th, 2008 announcement by Sarközy that the France 24 English and Arabic language news services would be scrapped? I just checked the France 24 website and here is what I found:

FRANCE 24 is deploying a decisive and bold multilingual strategy. Its programs are broadcast on three channels, one in French, one in English and one in Arabic. Spanish will follow.

You couldn't show your powerlessness in a more humiliating manner.
