'Hatred', 'Treason', 'War'

THERE IS NOTHING quite like a high-stakes trial involving a sitting President and a former political ally/rival. France has one -- and one can't help but get the feeling that things are going to get interesting. What other conclusion could you arrive at when words like 'hatred,' 'treason,' and 'war' are already being thrown around in the French press.
