Man, what a bastard. I mean doesn't this just prove how evil and stuck up Chirac and all the French people are? /sarcasm

That's a really nice story.


I like the world's WWII generation and their way of looking at things.


New Zealander Keith Coleman, 86, found himself stranded at a remote airfield after boarding a bus with other veterans after ceremonies in Normandy.

He told a newspaper he was befriended by an "important looking guy wearing gold braid" who said he could help.

Nice story, doesn't belong in the Pit. But I will put a prediction here though, this will get little response. It's habit to bash the French, say something nice about them? Yawn.

1. I went to the fridge to get a big chunk of cheese, and on return this topic had appeared on the screen.

2. France and New Zealand both make some excellent cheeses, and they do not blow up boats in each other's ports all that often.

3. "Ou Est La Maison De Fromage?" sees John Cooper Clarke in fine early form.

4. Keith Coleman would be more discombobulated by BTS than by being stranded at a remote airfield.

I would have liked to put this somewhere besides the pit, but as you said, I knew it would end up as Pit material no matter what. Maybe we need a heartwarming stories forum...


I've found that I have started to eat more cheese and drink more wine since the newest round of French hating started. Someone's got to balance it out....the hate's become ridiculous. I know someone who refused to go into the Paris Casino in Las Vegas.

French bashing and "cheese-eating" comments are nothing more than products.. yes of course products created by the American media because France doesen't support everything America does.

It shows that America truly does not own the world and that other nations do not have to agree with them.. unless of course they get bombed.


They do not have to, and I hope they do not for the sake of peoples lives. (Including Iraqis.. since they are humans too)

Are you suggesting it was the Media who were responsible for and undertook an anit-French campaign this years?????????

It was a nice story and a good deed by Chirac. I don't see where this is going. It was nice of Chirac to fly the aged veteran back to his Paris hotel. Chirac probably wanted the media attention, and wanted to be seen with D-Day vets.

PS: I like cheese and red wine.

Just because France won't conform and agree with everything the USA does and says, doesen't make me anti-French but actually more Pro-French.

The media did all that nationalism flag waving "Freedom fries" nonsense when the French decided to stay out of that slaughterhouse and move on to more important issues.

Hey Red stop trying to 2-step your way out of taking responsibility by saying “Not me!
It’s the media, when in fact it was of your own who began assuming responsibility for US policy in foreign relations (forget that mind road bump called the Constitution; and that separation of power thingie) a couple of no-name House members decided to fill the gap they saw (mostly in name recognition; and it’s also a fun thing to do on the House floor.)

=================================================
US Congress opts for "freedom fries"

French fries are off the menu for US legislators
French fries in the House of Representatives' cafeterias will now be known as "freedom fries" as part of a Republican protest at France's opposition to a war on Iraq.
Republican representative Bob Ney, whose committee is in charge of the eateries, said the action was "a small but symbolic effort to show the strong displeasure of many on Capitol Hill with the actions of our so-called ally, France".

French toast from now on will be known as "freedom toast".

My goodness it even made it into a dictionary……..

IT WAS NOT THE MEDIA’S doing……….nor is it the media does not support the French positions on Iraq…………..

So now with this all cleared up for you……………

What have you to say? Where does RED stand on this?????????????

Why are we even bothering with this guy G Mc?

We could talk about how the brew beer and this jack ass would come in with some broken record drive by.

Maybe he should read "The True Believers", what do you think?

Great Idea...............give it a try..........a real eye opener.
BTW

I edited that JBS post to be more accurate......I read it the next day and found it to be NOT just what I meant to convey.......... so change in facts, just a tad more clarity for the reader………….

I was referring to before the invasion when France decided to stay out.. I rememember all these interviews with resturant owners on CNN and all those other propaganda networks about changing French fries to Freedom fries. But most people don't realize that they were invented in Belgium. They kept making a big deal out of this for awhile until it settled down.

That's why I say the media helped to enhance the thing.
