Paddy Plastique BS: Algeria - 40 Years Old Today (18) Algeria - 40 Years Old Today 18 Mar 02


Today is the 40th anniversary of the Evian Agreement which ended the Algerian War of Independence.
Lot of media coverage for it here in France. Gives we Irish a wee bit of consolation for the failure
of the Year of the French and the far bigger French effort of 1796 - 'there but for the grace of God..'
A nation born in a very bloody fashion and, sadly, still shedding its blood today.
Lazy journalists sometimes class Algeria as 'France's Northern Ireland' to convey a sense of the conflict
to Anglos.
