Reversing the Louisiana purchase by force?

Sarkozy has been speaking in a way open to misinterpretation, so I have misinterpreted it:

"Je viens à Washington avec un message très simple. Je veux reconquérir le cœur de l’Amérique, et reconquérir le cœur de l’Amérique de façon durable".
Source

Which could be rendered as 'I come to Washington with a simple message. I want to reconquer the heart of America, and to reconquer it in a way that lasts".

Now our Trans-Atlantic friends routinely refer to fly over states between the East and West coasts as the Heartland.

And the Heartland looks a lot like the territory of the Louisiana purchase, sold at 4C an acre back in 1803.



Don't say I didn't warn you.

Funny! I've just sent it to a friend from Baton Rouge! He'll think the map's about right.
