For all the moronic anti-french americans, more proof that France is an ally.
A french ship helped out Americans in the midst of the fighting in the Ivory Coast.

BTW, I am a proud AMERICAN, vehemently against the

juvenile

anti-french rhetoric we have dealt with recently.

Shame on us for not allowing another democracy to their free democratic right to CHOOSE. Choice in democracy is what our principles are founded upon.

Well, it´s a more complicated world than most think. But most educated people understand that, France still has an influence in many places on the planet like it or not....

I think the facts were not very important during the last few months , I wonder if they are now ...

Anyway, it will be hard for many Americans to change their minds about France.

I don't think people claiming that those who aren't with them are against them understand it... Sigh, please dump him, Americans!

I also recall an article in the NY times a while back that said that French intelligence sent the FBI warnings about possible terrorist attacks in August, 2001, however the American govt. ignored the warnings, deeming the risk level not high enough. Over the years, even before 9/11, the French have provided us bounds of information about Islamic terrorists. However everyone seems to forget this.

If the US have a minister for information like the Iraqis do... (ie. same level of intelligence)... he'd say this... "You're either with us or against us... if you provide us intelligence on our enemies, we can only conclude that you are linked with them and therefore you are against us... regardless of the circumstances..."

Just kidding... Surely Americans deserve a better president and cabinet!

Then of course there is Liberia, ruled by a gangster, massive human rights abuses, spilling over to other nearby nations, and this an African state with strong US links.
They are crying out for Bush to send the Marines in.
Bet he won't.

Actually, there are plenty of "despotic" regimes that Bush could smash.

Liberia.

Is this that former immigrant, that joined the Marine Corps Reserves, Served one enlistment and then migrated back to Africa.

Hardly strong links.


Oh and the US has sent the Marines into Liberia on a couple different occasions to evacuate foreign nationals, not just US citizens, in the past 10 years.



OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

Yes, and the situation is as bad as ever, and they what the USMC back, or anyone really, if you are that desperate you'd hardly be too fussed.
A lot of people seem to think that Liberia does have strong US ties, still, no 'nation building' I suppose, (unless Bush's business cronies can make a pile of $ out of it).
