O/T; Earthquakes in France

Subject: Fw: Fw: Severe Earthquake In France!


Severe earthquake in France
Some history

Severe earthquake in France February 14, 2003. Today it was reported that a severe earthquakes have occurred in 10 different locations in France. The severity was measured in excess of 10 on the Richter Scale. The cause was the 56,681 dead American soldiers buried in French soil rolling over in their graves. According to the American Battle Monuments Commission there are 26,255 Yankee dead from World War 1 buried in 4 cemeteries in France There are 30,426 American dead from World War 11 buried in 6 cemeteries in France. These 56,681 brave American heroes died in their youth to liberate a country which is guilty of shameful unspeakable behavior in the 21 century. May the United States of America never forget their sacrifice as we find ways to forcefully deal with the godforsaken unappreciative, forgetful country of France. Pass this around, maybe it will get to someone in France.

Re: O/T; Earthquakes in France

they dont want to loose their oil deals with Iraq. I hope when this is over and the people of Iraq are free, they remember Frances position and not sell them the oil.
The US government said they will exhume the remains, fly it back to the US and give a military burial to any soldier buried there if the family requests it.

"France has neither winter nor summer nor morals. Apart from these
drawbacks it is a fine country. France has usually been governed by
prostitutes." ---Mark Twain

"I would rather have a German division in front of me than a French
one behind me."
--- General George S. Patton

"Going to war without France is like going deer hunting without your
accordion."---Norman Schwartzkopf

"We can stand here like the French, or we can do something about it."
---- Marge Simpson

"As far as I'm concerned, war always means failure"
---Jacques Chirac, President of France

"As far as France is concerned, you're right." ---Rush Limbaugh,

"The only time France wants us to go to war is when the German
Army is sitting in Paris sipping coffee." --- Regis Philbin

"The French are a smallish, monkey-looking bunch and not
dressed any better, on average, than the citizens of Baltimore.
True, you can sit outside in Paris and drink little cups of coffee,
but why this is more stylish than sitting inside and drinking large
glasses of whiskey I don't know." --- P.J O'Rourke (1989)

"You know, the French remind me a little bit of an aging actress
of the 1940s who was still trying to dine out on her looks but doesn't
have the face for it."---John McCain, U.S. Senator from Arizona

"You know why the French don't want to bomb Saddam Hussein?
Because he hates America, he loves mistresses and wears a
beret. He is French, people." --Conan O'Brien

"I don't know why people are surprised that France won't help us
get Saddam out of Iraq. After all, France wouldn't help us get the
Germans out of France!"---Jay Leno

"The last time the French asked for 'more proof' it came marching
into Paris under a German flag." --David Letterman

How many Frenchmen does it take to change a light bulb? One,
he holds the bulb and all of Europe revolves around him.

Next time there's a war in Europe, the loser has to keep France.

Re: O/T; Earthquakes in France

I'm sure the French will prove quite usefull in a war
with Iraq.With their previous experience they can show
the Iraqis how to surrender.

Re: O/T; Earthquakes in France

I quite agree with your general comments.

Living in England UK, France is my next-door neighbour. I have one observation.

France is a most excellent country,

Itís just the [bleep] dick French who live there that make it a zit on the arsehole of humanity!!!

Thatís my 2 cents.

(I would not be offended if the moderator would like to delete this post due to use of expletives)

Doug, lock it, and burn it.

OK - a way off topic post. I'm not exactly what you'd call pro-french on this, but i think this thread stinks.

You want to talk about historical dead...lets not forget that the US has a history of selling to both sides in a conflict until personally affected...then choosing sides. I'm from the UK, and my great grandfather was killed by US supplied munitions in ww1: while I respect those who died, you can blow the whole 'we're great' attitude out your ass. How about X number of slaves, white, and colored who've died under the US concepts of freedom and civil liberty? civil war dead ?( whos crazy enough to fight their own brother ?) how many countries does the us currently have no official dialogue with? ( ever seen a debutante who seems stuck up, and wont talk to certain people?)

And I'm sure some one is going to say 'hey, its all in fun': so "hey, I've got a great sense of humor, and saw a terrific joke in a french paper the other day"
</font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />
why bother to fight the US - they've killed more of their own in civil wars than everyone else put together. just leave them alone and sooner or later they'll go extinct.

[/ QUOTE ]

doug - lock it, and burn it. this doesnt belong on here, and doesnt exactly do the normal mentaility, and friendlines of this board justice. Apologies to those great US citizens who do look at the rest of the world, and realise that while the US may be a nice place to live, its not the center of the universe, has its own problems, and isnt any more perfect than other nations.

Re: Doug, lock it, and burn it.

Yeah, it's great. All good fun...Right.

What can I say? I was just hoping that people were smarter than that.
If it was that easy and war was the solution the problem would have been solved 10 years ago with Desert storm.

But of course, I'm French and I'm just a coward so what do I know?

You guys have fun.

Daniel......French (sorry).
