#1 This will be tough to counter - there aren't 52 Phrench worthy of note... and those that are, well, they're all Jokers.

#2 "L'effroyable imposture" sold 250 000 ex., which is very good for a book around here. The reseau voltaire is a left-leaning ngo specializing in fascism watch and threats to secularism, which used to be very positive in my eyes.
Meyssan is also known for his pro-gay rights stance, for his insider critiscism of free masonry (he was the main "unnamed" source for a contreversial book about Fm & corruption) and his denonciation of the militia-type order service of the Front national (his work was used for a parlementary inquiry), so he used to have credibility. According to a book countering his thesis (which sold about 20 000 ex....), "The appalling lie", he has alleged ties with the larouchians. Methink he is linked to french intelligence, and used as an useful idiot for propaganda value. Yup, that's a conspiracy theory.

ROTFLMAO!

ChIrak is downright pernicious, though.

#4 We need to investigate Jerry Lewis. He's at the root of this whole anti-American thing that's rolling through France. They finally realized that the Nutty Professor sucks and now they're holding it against us.

#5 Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is the Ace of Spades and al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden a Joker in a provocative pack of French playing cards depicting "the 52 most dangerous American officials."

So the French are parroting an American idea. Behind the ball, as always.

#7 Good, now we have a deck of cards to solidify the complete insanity of the French.

#8 For the note Meyssan is the head of Reseau Voltaire: a strongly anti--religion
organization who organized a demonstration against the coming of the Pope to Paris. Eighty
persons showed up to that demonstration. Despite
the laughable numbers one of them got interviewed
in the radio.


I have been told that before Reseau Voltaire, Thierry Meyssan had become rich in the porn industry.

Fluffer or jizz-mopper?

#11 Meyssan won notoriety for his book "L’Effroyable Imposture" ("The Appalling Fraud"), which suggested U.S. military insiders were probably behind the September 11 attacks.
Didn't the GIA plan to fly a plane into the Eiffel Tower in the mid 90s? Were France's spooks behind this attempt?

#12 US military involvement?

I think Gen Shelton put the lie to that one yesterday.

I have heard, .com, that the only way you can get a deck of these cards is to redeem ten French wine snap-caps for them.

#14 Old Patriot, don't forget Jonny Depp and Woody Allen. Count their enablers and slide in liely suspects that reside in Quebec.

#15 This is gonna end up being like that STERN cover showing Bush as Rambo, Condi as Xena, ect.: something that the Euros think is a great insult, but that most Americans think is funny and cool, in a kitschy kinda way... I'm a huge Bush supporter ( I could say that I was a big fan of Bush, but people might get confused, hehe...) and I'd LOVE one of these.
