It's also a complete misconception that the French dislike Armstrong. Did you follow Armstrong's comeback on the Tour in 2010? Did you see the thousands of people on the side of the road (myself included) all over France cheering for him? I can also assure you that the (French) organizers of the Tour de France would much prefer that Armstrong not be stripped of his titles.
I'd strongly suggest taking Armstrong's "It's all big (French-led) conspiracy against me" stance with a serious dose of critical thinking. One can disagree with USADA's decision, or with the view that USADA should have the power to strip Armstrong of his titles and ban him, without just repeating Armstrong's paranoid nonsense.
Regardless of whether you think he doped or not, you have to admit that USADA looks like a complete joke in this situation. Stripping him of titles when they don't have the power to. Pursuing a case that is beyond their statute of limitations. Building an entire case on hearsay when he hasn't failed single drug test. Its a damn joke.
Personally, I believe he doped. I don't say cheated because when they all are doing it, its not cheating. Cycling wasn't clean before Lance and it isn't clean after Lance. My family is heavily into cycling, my brother has made a career out of it. I've followed cycling for a long time now. The entire sport is "dirty". Your telling me that Bradley Wiggins goes on to win the most difficult and grueling race perhaps in all of sports and then goes on to win the Olympics too, but is completely clean? Sorry, not buying that one. Your body just doesn't recover like that.
