The United States of Amnesia, by Carlos Fuentes
Le Monde, April, 3rd, 2003
Without France, the United States would not exist.
The wise firmness of France, can open the prospect for a world order founded on the right. The United States seems to want to be unaware of it. The ridiculous francophobia developed by the most ignited North-American patriotards proves especially that the super power would sometimes deserve to be called “the United States of Amnesia”.
