After the high peak in the US last year of French hatred and boycott threats, with the augmentation of French bashing during the US presidential campaign, I find it a bit ironic since we've seen yet no americans boycotting the French flu vaccine.
That's right, vaccine shots are not like beaujolais wines!

Actually that comes from the fact that it's too expensive for a US company to produce the vaccines. There are too many frivolous lawsuits that the US only has two domestic companies make vaccines in the US anymore.
You know I wouldn't like beeing in Iraki shoes: in the event they DARE not to agree with US policies in the future, they will have to listen at that kind of rethoric: What!!! we saved you a$$ from Saddam you ungrateful [censored]!!
too bad they haven't made a vaccine for Chicken pox or Yellow fever.
Yeah too bad.... but the've just made vaccine for stupidness and it seems you urgently need a shot.

Thanks France, now the US will have up to 2.6 million additional kids with ADD and Autisim from the flu vaccine.
Did you see the latest Democratic attemp at a dig?
Apparently Cheney got a flu shot. So of course the left wing are bitching about that completely ignoring that Cheney falls into the same medical catagory as Bill Clinton, a Heart patient, and Clinton got one too for the same damm reason!!!

I'm a big enough person that I can thank someone who has helped us ( even if I don't agree with some of there policies) Thank you for the vaccines! ( although I will not be getting one because I am 15 and have no health problems) My grandmother is 83 and has many ailments and something like the flu could kill her. If your generous controbution allowed my grandmother to get a flu shot I sincerley thank you.

Actually you cant sue for the flu shot and their has never been a frivolous lawsuit over a flu shot and considering that our pharmacutical companies are making record profits, lawsuits are not the reason they arent making vaccines, the reason is called profits! the lawsuit thing must come from your anti-Edwards ideas, right? I love the Republican arguement about Edwards being a trial lawyers considering 87 of the Republicans (or 3 times the number of dems) in our congress are trial lawyers.

I don't think Chris was alive when your grandfather "faught for his freedom" or Chris could always say hey btw. My great great grandfather faught for yours and supplied 80% of the weapons that the US used to defeat the Brits...
and they sold the US the Louisiana Purchase which now makes up for a good hunk of the US (and many of the red states), for a discounted price.
Why do young Americans continually bring up WWII?? Nobody on this forum fought in that war or freed France and none of the men and women who did serve at the time would ever bring it up in an arguement against the french about vacines.
