The point is ┬ľ these French journalists didn't believe in their chances of getting fair justice from the French society, for human rights, and values, and that of women dignity, or whatever one calls it. And France is not a third-world nation.

So long I was under the impression, in spite of occasional skirmishes across the Atlantic, that Western values were sort of universal. The fine-print probably tells me the limitations of over-simplifications, as Einstein believed in 'everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler'.

America may have hijacked basic human values and rights and aspirations under these two words 'American values', however, for a change, this time millions of people across the world, who have been disillusioned by American foreign policies to monetary policies over the last many years, surely would not be complaining.

It is early days for this case, symbolic of 'American values', to billions of netizens like us.     The case would surely evolve. However for a change, the rest of the world would surely love to witness the movie to its legitimate end, a high-profile case that truly represents 'American values'. We have so far seen the trailer.


I invite you to visit my blog,  Wondering Man  (or take a look at my book, Wondering Man, Money & Go(l)d  that rightly predicted many of the economic and geopolitical crises, to the gold prices and the currency disputes). You are also invited to join me on  twitter .
