Well,there you have it.France wants to prop up Saddam so he can be a "counterweight" to the U.S and Israel.You're still a disgusting frog,Jacques,but thanks for "coming clean".

Point is, Chirac, you've made the western alliance look divided, corrupt and weak. The world's very much bipolar, and your waving the banner for despots and repression the world over puts you at odds with whose of us who are making the world a safer place.

Wonder what the frogs would have thought in '44 if the Iraqis had marched in Baghdad protesting allied plans for Normandy...

#4 And I really like you guys too, Jacques...

Just between you and me... I secretly crave French horse meat, snails, and frogs every once and a while...

And don't forget... french wine, clarified with cow's blood...!

#5 Was it the French who first coined the term "americanization" after the Civil War? They saw what we would become then.

#6 Chirac could always grow a spine and take the lead on things. The unipolar world run by the US could be led to do the right thing if Chirac had any brains. Instead of fighting the flow of history join up with it, guide it, as Tony Blaire got the US to go to the UN first Chirac could be the one pointing out targets and reasons.

ah, there is the nut because then people would question French rationals for everything instead of American rationals.

#8 Jacques used to be a St. Louisian. Worked at AB, probably knocked back a few in the bleachers at Cardinal games. I'll bet he made 4:00 in the morning White Castle runs too. Lovely. I don't think that little fact is going to turn up in our tourism brochures any time soon.

#9 Boy, is that condescending! That racist twit thinks America is about good old boys and junk food. That corrupt bastard forgets our people have won more Nobel prizes in the last five years than the French have in their entire history. And to make matters worse, Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon routinely beats the best Bourdeaux in blind tastings. Junk food, my ass! This guys living in some kind of neo-fascist dreamworld.

#10 Uncle Ho Chi Minh used to wash dishes when he lived in the U.S.A. He also went on to an illustrious career in his homeland.
