    I never was angry with the French. I had no expectations of the gutless wonders to begin with. Perhaps I shouldn't be so harsh. The poor bastards have had their asses kicked three times in the last hundred years.

    For sale: French WWII rifle. Never fired. Only dropped once.

    I asked my dad, he got a purple heart at Normandy-Omaha Beach, if he might like to go there this summer. His reply, no thanks, DisneyWorld or Vegas would be better. At going on 84, have to accede to his wishes.

    It's got nothing to do with the fact that they are French. It has everything to do with the fact that France all but supported and advocated for Saddam Hussein, even though they are supposed to be our allies (remember NATO?).

    the statue of liberty in the harbor of new york is a lasting symbol of our brotherhood with the french. like any family, there are disagreements like the one we are in now. on the whole, I expect us to get past it at some point and move forward altho I can't say whether we will reach the same point of alliance we have enjoyed in the past. Yes, we saved them a couple times, but they also contributed greatly in our own fight for liberty if you recall.

    Lets look at this way. My brother gets in a fight and is loosing. I help him, and we win. Later, he gets in a fight the with the same person, I help him, we win again. The bully is now lifting weights and toughening up to fight us again, so I stop the threat ahead of time, and my brother gets angry and denounces our brotherhood. Doesn't sound a like a functional family, let alone a family at all.

    I hope you liked my slightly modified analogy!
