When they believe they are being screwed by their leaders the reaction is certainly volatile. Two main features here. The actual revolution when French royalty was ended forever and the recent display ( revolution? ) against a law they didn't like, law withdrawn.
Meanwhile in the countries of the three amigos of the Iraqi war notoriety the populations ares getting screwed good and proper and yet the leaders continue to get away with fckiung robbery and murder and get re-elected. What do the good folks of these countries do, smile grit their teeth and cop the lot. Maybe there is something going for the frogs after all. Think about it.
Just a thought
