"not the same French"
5pof, you make me laugh.
I take youíve never been to France?
Itís pretty obvious from your postings.
I wouldnít be surprised if youíre one of the 89% of Americans who donít even own a passport.
I could sit and tell you about France, but it would mean nothing to you.
People are exactly the same the world over. There are arseholes, there are pricks, there are good people, there are bad, and there are hot chicks too,
everywhere the world over.
The more you travel, the more you realise this.
You can bring up things from the 13th century to 'prove' why France is so bad, and your answer to the fact that they helped create your own nation
is "not the same French".
People do not suddenly transform into a single evil entity just because theyíre under a dictator or an emperor or any other form of Government.
The same way Iraqi's are not all murderous evil baby eaters just because their leader is Saddam.
The same way Americans are not all Facististic right wing Christian fundamentalist blinkered money chasers, just because their leader is.
The Anti French stuff is pretty ironic.
The people who spout it are the very same people who get so worked up about the people who display supposed ëAnti- Americanismí.
Is that the way you sort out your problems? You respond in kind until any chance of normal relations is gone? If that is the way you operate I can see
you having a lot of enemies in life.
France just stuck their head too high above the parapet in voicing their opposition to the war and received the mantle as the main opponents to it.
As such they were unlucky enough to be taken on as Americaís scapegoat for anything that goes wrong. Itís Human nature. The blame has to sit somewhere
as long as itís not with me.
You think you are right in what you say. How many people do you think are going to agree with you from what youíve written? You advocate the war in
Iraq as a quest of liberation from an evil dictator, yet to make your point you write with poison and hatred worthy of Saddam himself. Are we still so
blind that we cannot see the cycle of hatred that these things create? If you wish to be free to slander France, then you must expect the French
people to fire back bile as poisonous as yours. What happens then? You ratchet up the vitriol to counteract that, then they do the same and we
continue ad nausem until any chance of friendly, peaceful relations are right out the _
The sad thing is, this is the kind of attitude that your Government is taking to foreign policy. You donít agree with us? You are wrong and a coward
as well as a fool. We are fighting for peace in the world, but it shall be a peace of our making, under our terms, created through violence, from our
view of what is good for you, based on what is good for us. You donít like it? Go back to (insert country) and (insert insult based on outdated
