    May I bring to the attention of the American people the annoyance and sense of betrayal felt by many British people at the comments by Pres Obama how the French were the USA's greatest ally.

    This is particularly upsetting when on our TV we are seeing the bodies of British soldiers being brought home to the UK.

    If the USA ever enters another conflict then Pres Obama should ask the French to fight alongside the USA.

    Bill,
    On behalf of true Americans everywhere, let me apologize for the moron and embarrassment that is our current President. He does NOT speak for us, and is no smarter than a bump on a log. He is not an "American" in the sense that he thinks our entire history (including that shared with Britain) is embarrassing and should be forgotten or changed.

    France is nothing but a bunch of surrender monkeys, and no true American would every rely in the French for anything other than a nice Bordeaux or a fresh, smelly cheese.

    "That guy" couldn't be any less like us than the French, so please take anything he says (and he certainly will say many more stupid things in the days ahead) with a massive grain of salt. Bear with us until 2012, when you, nor we, will ever hear of him again.

    Don't let it get to you, Bill. It has been pretty obvious from the outset that Obama is no friend of Britain. He still holds a grudge about how the British treated his Mau Mau terrorist relatives in Kenya. Who gives a shit! He's probably having a hissy fit because, unlike Tony Blair, Cameron refuses to be a presidential lapdog.

    As you say, let the French prove him right by sending THEIR young men and women to die in wars that are not involved in defence of the homeland. Somehow I can't see that! Not while French officers wear brown trousers!

    The only " allies" the US of Fallen Mpyre has, are paid mercenaries.
    The only reason the Queen and it's inbred snaggletoofs stand along is they STILL own you.
    You go belly up, so do they.
    Let it begin.

    Obama has 'issues' with the Brits... y'all were mean to his granddaddy. Ignore him. He's an ass. The only reason we'd want the French on our side would be offer advice on what color flag we need to surrender. :lol:

    Welcome to the board.... the Brit Military rock.

    question: Why are there trees along the Champs de Elysee?



    answer: Germans like to march in the shade.

    Please bear with us 2 more years and we would appreciate it if you would then send back that bust of Winston.

    That whole 'send back the bust' thing still really pisses me off. Obama has the diplomacy skills of a 5 year old. He's an arrogant little brat in serious need of a nap.

    I agree. A simple "Fuck you all, including the Queen" on Presidential letterhead, would have been far more succinct, effective, and cheaper.

    He is a completely clueless, narcissistic idiot.

    Context seems to be missing, but that never stops the echo chamber. For perspective, consider our Declaration of Independence; the American Revolution was well received in France, both by the general population and the educated classes. The Revolution was perceived as the incarnation of the Enlightenment Spirit against the "English tyranny." Benjamin Franklin, dispatched to France in December of 1776 to rally her support, was welcomed with great enthusiasm, as numerous Frenchmen embarked for the Americas to volunteer for the Patriot war effort. Motivated by the prospect of glory in battle or animated by the sincere ideals of liberty and republicanism, volunteers included the likes of Pierre Charles L'Enfant, and La Fayette, who enlisted in 1776.

    As long as the Brits need help controlling the oil in Asia, I have very little fear that the UK is going to abandon the USA.

    We are simply continuing to manage the MANDATE nations that you limeys so royally fucked up back in the 20's, ya know.

    Show your appreciation.

    The French OTOH, expect nothing from us and get it.
