Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not fair to de Gaulle to put him by Franco. By Thatcher - why not? He killed a lot more people, and was a lot more authoritarian. Plenty of talk here about historical amnesia among Americans. Maybe a bit about the French version? (and yes, there's a hell of a lot more to like about de Gaulle as well, but let's not forget the dark side)
