It would be a shock to most on this board to see that the United States is not to blame for all of the bad things in the world.

A former senior Rwandan diplomat has told a tribunal that France played an active role in Rwanda's 1994 genocide.

Part of Canada is French so you don't have to tell me about how le Francais do politics. They are as dirty as anybody but they hide behind a liberal facade which somehow confuses a lot of people.

I thought this was a commentary on the au natural hygenic practices of France. You know, unshaven, smokey, European je ne crois pas?

I was going to jump in with - they have bidets!

Alas, we're all in this dirty heap together. Canada as well has participated in the colonial, imperialistic policies that make us wastemakers.

Isn't there a policy of waste-making. Every person should exceed their weight in garbage once a week, or something like that?

Where's Luigi Barzini for a good banter, when you need him? 'Those quarrelsome French'!

Yes the US is not to blame for most things in the world, but then again no one is , well mabye except the UK. I mean we did create the whole middle east situation, didnt stop WW2, created concentration camps and did allow slavery for several centuries but hey whos keeping track of all the skeletons in the cupboards huh?

But then again what does the world want? A "We're sorry for the last 200+ years of bad stuff we caused" card?

Being Hairy, crying about everybody else, starting wars, and getting saved by other countries, like the UK and USA. If it weren't for the last two there would be no France.

The main reason they didn't want the US in Iraq was they had so much under the table $$$ in Iraq.
