Chirac gives the “malaise” speech

From CBS News: ‘French President sees ‘profound malaise”:

President Jacques Chirac said Monday that more than two weeks of violence in the poor suburbs of France is the sign of a "profound malaise" and he ordered new measures to reach out to troubled youths and fight the discrimination believed to be at the root of it.
One of Chirac’s actions was to urge businesses to “support employment for youths from tough neighborhoods” - a useless admonition when the economy is dragging and joblessness hovers in the double digits.

Extra – Gah! Bulldog Pundit had the same idea.
