New to the mb here but like what i see. As for the French not supporting the US position on the Iraqi situation- we should not be surprised. Chirac has been sleeping with the Iraqi dictatorship for decades. He was Saddams whore. Talk of whores...I personally know a WWII vet from 101st who told of how the french women would trade some affection for cigarettes. Maybe Chiracs mom was one of those kind of women and he got it honest. Nonetheless, this vet said the fench could not be trusted, were unappreciative. Now this just baffles the mind, the US liberated France from a tyrant and then they support a tyrant. There is truly something wrong with these people. The US invasion may have been fueled by WMD and links to terrorism; however, a liberation was achieved. A hope that another nation of human beings can live free. That is what it is all about. The Pursuit of liberty is not exclusive to American life but global human life. Yes liberty has a high price even a higher calling maybe. But the strong, bold, steadfast Americans answered the call and are paying the price. Why? We did not forget what history taught our people. We did not forget what it was like to be pushed around and exploited 200 plus years ago when our ancestors colonized this land. Maybe the French need to step away from a self serving way of life and stand up against what could have made them a part of a Tyrannical empire. God Bless our TROOPS! F@@k the French, Germans, and anyone else who doesn't believe in standing for what is right. Moderators...Thank you. I respect and appreciate what you do here.
