J'aime beaucoup la France. Poursouvant, on va parler seulement francais dans cette "thread". (and i can't spell in french to save my life)

I have always enjoyed my times in France.

Quite frankly, if I judged France on its politics, I wouldn't love it nearly as much as I do. I am not a fan of Jacques Chirac, to put it mildly. I love the culture--the chateaux, the cathedrals, the museums, its troubadour heritage, and many other things that have little if anything to do with politics.

Vive la France, or is it Vive le France?

------------

France, the one whose president, Bono called a wanker for continued nuclear testing?

Every country has problems, sorry to say.

la France, last time I checked.

I wonder what is more moral...stealing money from the Iraqi people or bombing and killing them in an illegal war. hmm.

de tout facon, moi je pense que la plupart de francais, quand-meme, sont biens, meme si la governement a des problemes. C'est pas unique dans la monde entiere, il faut simplement voir les Etats-Unis.

It was stealing money, food and medcine from the Iraqi people so that the regime was able to engineer a humanitarian disaster that dwarfs the number of those killed in the war; kill thousands to remove a dictator of have the dictator kill hundreds of thousands and stay in power? there is no magic wand option where nobody is hurt, there is always a price be it for action or inaction and no side can absolve itself of that.

Enough about this, wrong thread.

Don't forget the stealing money from the program was helping kill them....I am sure you didn't but reading your post I can't tell if you are attempting to make a morality point about America without presenting the whole picture.


Personally, I am not sure I would care if I were God. Both are equally tradjic.

It's "Vive la France" as "France" is feminine. Their name for the U.S. is "Etats-Unis" and it's masculine. What does that say about our relatioinship??
