Le Monde said France and Britain, which is celebrating the 200th anniversary of the French emperor's defeat by European armies in 1815, are missing one spectacular achievement of Waterloo: two centuries of Anglo-French peace.
"Never again have we been at war with each other, except on rugby fields," Le Monde said in its leader.
