More on France's White Paper

Updating my post of yesterday, here's an English language link to President Sarkozy's speech launching the new national security White Paper. At the bottom of the page there's also a link to a 48-page English-language summary (!) of the document. I'm a little baffled that terrorism is ranked as France's highest security priority, but encouraged by the fact that the French see defence of the homeland in holistic terms, rather than as strictly a defence activity. There's even mention of resilience. Also notable is the emphasis on cyber-threats and space security.

There's more good blog coverage here and here.
