ON THE ATTACK: French Wine Terrorists

France has seen yet another attack by the elusive group Le Comite Regional d’Action Viticole (CRAV) — aka “The Wine Terrorists” (member, above).

According to reports, the rogue wine rebels broke into a wine cooperative on Friday in the South of France and drained a whopping 1.2 million bottles of white, red and rose wine. The group — which has been known to hijack tankers, bomb producers and (like this most recent action) drain wine storage facilities — opposes the importation of foreign spirits into France.

Do they ever!

The commando-styled stunt will cost the cooperative some $750,000 and is the third such incident in a mere three weeks.
