#1 It's hard to guage the level of anti-American sentiment in Baghdad from what we see in the press. Either they have a tendency to focus almost exclusively on the bad, or they Iraqis really aren't that happy with us because I don't see any positive stories. That could mean a warm welcome for the French, if the Iraqis know we aren't happy with the French.

I think it's disgusting that the French are going to be allowed to be there anyway. They have done nothing but fight us the whole way and now they go in for the glory party, when we hand the country back to the Iraqis. Bleh, makes me sick.

#2 Sure, let the French in. I imagine some American officers might like drivers, valets or personal chefs.

#3 "France wants to be present at the side of the Iraqi people"

As opposed to their previous position, helping Saddam stand on the Iraqi people's thoats. What an asshole

#4 What can the French teach Iraqis? How to hate Americans in a limp-wristed kind of way.

#5 I've previously posted on this site that some of the ignorant and naive opinions expressed were frightening. Now, however, having read this site for a little longer it is rather apparent that the collective IQ of the majority of the contributors is sadly lacking and the only danger this site poses it that of splitting the laughing sides of people from all over the world can check out how, frankly, ridiculous some Americans' opinions evidently are - no insult intended to you folks personally, after all it's not your fault that your country's underfunded education system has, quite evidently, failed you (you have a lower level of literacy in the U.S. than they have in Cuba) and left you without the necessary skills to analyse, with any real degree of rigour, the information presented to you, resulting in the vicious, vitriolic, intolerant, self serving, inward looking, and really rather pathetic and meaningless views which you present.
