Hollande following in George W. Bush's footsteps

With his resolute stance after the terror attacks in Paris French President François Hollande is reminiscent of former US president George W. Bush after 9/11, the left-leaning daily Právo writes: "Much like Bush, he declared with great pathos that his country was now at war with a cruel, lowly enemy. The words he used harked back to the American Patriot Act of October 2001. Like Bush Jr., Hollande sent armed forces into the country where the terror was planned. Syria is for Hollande what Afghanistan was for Bush. ... The weak president of not so long ago, more unpopular than any of his predecessors, is suddenly playing the role of marshal with vigour and dedication. Whether this approach will be successful will only become clear with time - as will the results of his grand diplomatic tour to the world's most powerful leaders."
