Who knew they could read?

ATHENS: Masked youths attacked the French Institute in Athens with firebombs on Friday, while Greek union members and university professors geared up for anti-government rallies outside Parliament.

Some windows of the French Institute, a cultural and educational center, were smashed but the interior was not seriously damaged in the attack by about 20 people, police said. A nearby bank ATM was also damaged, but nobody was injured.

"Spark in Athens. Fire in Paris. Insurrection is coming," read one slogan spray-painted onto the building's walls in French. Another, written in Greek, read "France, Greece, uprising everywhere."
Too darn convenient if you ask me. Yesterday, the International Herald Tribune published a piece based on an interview with a French Socialist dim-wit warning that France could see the same violence that Greece has been experiencing. The very next day the French Institute in Athens gets firebombed.

There are no coincidences...only patterns on this big blue my opinion.
