French's Mustard

When the Iraq war started, French's Foods got some flack through the mail asking if they were a French owned company, they responded with a press conference stating that the only thing they had in common with their mustard and France was that they were both yellow. True story.


At least they were smart enough

France (Opération Héraclès): 4,500 troops including 3,500 for the Marine Nationale (one CVBG, comprising the FS Charles de Gaulle, frigates La Motte-Picquet, Jean de Vienne and Jean Bart, the nuclear attack submarine Rubis, the tanker Meuse and the aviso Commandant Ducuing), 600 for the Armée de l'Air (12 Mirage 2000, Mirage F1 and Mirage IV ground-attack and reconnaissance aircraft), 600 to International Security Assistance Force; 200 special forces for 2003. Three French soldiers have died during OEF (as well as four under ISAF): two in an ambush and one to small arms fire


Cecil, "French" and "Smart" should never be in the same box

I'm not sure how smart the US was to get "involved" with France after the Vichy government was installed either. They're getting what they deserve with the Muslim riots in Paris that the liberal press is trying to downplay as a "class uprising".


You keep forgetting about the French resistance George

This response submitted by Cecil 64.184.41.234 on 8/14/06 at 12:41 PM. ( ) 64.184.42.103

that saved the lives of lots of our downed pilots in WWII and was more than an annoyance to the Nazi's. They were key in gathering intelligence for the allies. Those people were anything but yellow and some paid dearly for it if they were caught. Not only would they be tortured and killed the Nazi's took it one step futher. In many cases they killed all their relatives.

And furthermore without their aid in the revolutionary war the U.S. might be another British colony.

This bashing of the French is not only inaccurate it shows a fundamental lack of knowledge of history. To use the French Vichey to judge the French as a whole is not fair.

As far as the riots in France I think France as every right to kick their butts out. They're muslims basically although they may have been born in France. I say if they don't like it in France go back to bum 'uck Egypt. No one's forcing them to stay there.


That is true Cecil

Many of those good, freedom loving people died for that right as well. It's a shame their country didn't show their backbone. Charles De Gaulle was a joke and he helped make the New France a farce like he was. He showed his appreciation of the allied effort by kicking us out of the country and of Frence "possessions" after the war ended.


Cecil, you're an A$$...still

This response submitted by charles on 8/14/06 at 2:53 PM. ( ) 71.34.195.183

Why is it you resort to name calling with your immature antics...were you violated as a kid and just have never resolved your issues? I gave a link to your comment "However they have quite a precense in Afghanistan " as to their being their to this day. Your right about their support in the efforts but you are such an ass that you enjoy provoking others. And you will hereto be known as Cecilia!


Chuckie Cheese, Chuckie Cheese, Chuckie Cheese!

Thanks to the dufus we have as a leader. The question is does that mean we can call all Americans idiots as we are with the French?
