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"

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.

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.
