    Americans are wrong about alot of things.

    Unfortunately for France, the war in Iraq wasnt one of them.

    In reading these posts however, I’ve come across some pretty ridiculous arguments.

    Its is completely ridiculous to call the French cowards, simply because they refused to help the US in the war.

    The French are not afraid of Sadaam Hussein. Belgium could defeat Sadaam Hussein. France is one of the wealthiest countries in the world, they have about as much to fear from Sadaam as you do.

    The French did not participate, because they did not see the war as being in their national interests. Its that simple.

    Heck, they had contracts with Iraq worth billions. Part of a credible argument is understanding your opponents position. The French were not afraid.

    Lastly, the idea that the French, "owe" you for liberating them during world war two is legitimate. But the idea that they should repay this debt, by blindly going into a war, just because you say so isn’t just wrong, its STUPID. In fact, its idiotic.

    War is not a game. Its not some coffee cake you can take back. Lives are at stake. Innocent lives. You don’t go to war to repay favors.

    Does the United States owe France for its help during the battle for Independence against Great Britain? France helped the United States a great deal.

    If the French demanded you go to war with Italy, because they helped you against the English, would you agree?

    Of course not. Please, stop making silly stupid arguments people.

    Cheers,
    The brilliant Canadian.

    Oh really...

    That all seems a bit peculiar.

    You talking to the French?

    But now that there are contracts out there for billions of dollars it's in the best interest?

    If you plan on posting here in the future I suggest you lose the attitude. You made a post. People responded. That's how message boards work!

    You aren't always going to get replies you like. Deal with it.

    ive been to france, a coulpe time (one of the perks to being in the military at the time). i found it to be dirty and the people are rude. like it was such a chore to take my money when i wanted to buy something.
    id rather go back to korea any day of the week. the people are nicer and the foods better

    Wisconsin has better cheese than France, better brats than Germany and better beer than Russia. I just wanted to clear that up.
