What's with the constant french bashing?
Surely the definition of gullible american is any american who attacks the french - you were fed an easy nation to pick on to distract and encourage the move towards war, because the french were crazy enough to point out that there was no credible intelligence for WMDs, and that a war in Iraq might be a bad idea?
This would be the same France that sent troops in to support the independance of three nations that were trying to free themselves from the yoke of British oppression, namely Ireland, India and the United States? But unlike the US, when they send men to die for a common cause, they don't bang on about it for ever and ever afterwards, instead they sent the US a symbol of freedom, the Statue of Liberty. That's right, the French designed and built statue that symbolises what the US used to stand for, once.
It always amazes me. They're idiosyncratic, they have a poor record on early nuclear weapons testing, they lacked the armed forces or political will to stroip German invasion during the war, and they're still dealing with integration of immigrants successfully. Yuo could list a far longer list of excesses, oppresions or atrocities against the UK or US (UK, whoi was the first the gas the kurds, beating Saddam by decades? that's right, you guessed it, the UK!), yet they're still the whipping boy of either. I guess transgressors always need someone else to point at...
