DAMN those bastards for trying to stop us from making the biggest military blunder in US history!!!

And DAMN Canada!

DAMN Germany!

DAMN Mexico!

DAMN;

Brazil!

China!

Russia!

Turkey!

26 out of 33 Latin American nations!

116 nations of the Non-Aligned Movement!

Every one of the 161 nations (out of 191) who said HELL NO to bush's war of aggression are our enemy!

And the majority of citizens in every single nation on the planet INCLUDING AMERICA (until "shock & awe" was slaughtering Iraqi kids) who said HELL NO to bush's war of aggression!

2. What is the real argument against France?
Even Jon Stewart agreed with O'Reilly saying that France wasn't our friend, but he added that they were more like Marcy on Peanuts, than Lucy.

5. Pure distraction for the stupid. How do you demonize 161 out of 191?
You can't.

So you pick one, and you demonize that one.

Distract the stupid from the fact that the vast majority of the entire world -citizens and nations- said HELL NO.

12. I got the impression that the right-wing grudge against France goes
well beyond that one incident.

8. That was a weird argument
I compare it more to they guy that tries to take your keys so you don't drive home falling-down drunk. Yeah, that guy that is going out on a limb trying to save you from a huge mistake is a real jerk. /sarcasm

11. We can ask Tommy Friedman
who penned a spectacularly dumb (even for Friedman) France is Becoming Our Enemy column:
France wants America to sink in a quagmire there in the crazy hope that a weakened U.S. will pave the way for France to assume its "rightful" place as America's equal, if not superior, in shaping world affairs.

13. Okay, let's talk specifics.
1) France had oil interests in Iraq before we went in? Yes or no?

2) France has once before not allowed the US to fly over its air space when the US was trying to undergo a military mission in another situation? Yes or no?

3) And then the sensible decision not to support this Iraq War.

Personally, I think #3 is the weakest argument of the 3.

I also know that France conducted Nuclear testing somewhere in the Pacific which pissed off a great many people.

But still, we have other allies which have done much worse to us.

What else do we have on France?

17. I think P.J. O'Rourke bashed them best
"French ideas, French beliefs, and French actions form a sort of lodestone for humanity. A moral compass needle needs a butt end: Whatever direction France is pointing -- toward collaboration with Nazis, accommodation with communists, existentialism, Jerry Lewis, or a UN resolution veto -- we can go the other way with a quiet conscience."

20. Well, if you put it that way...
..but, I kind of liked Jerry Lewis. The young, not the old.

3. And isn't the true measure of a good friend...
the willingness to tell you when you're wrong? Throughout history, has the U.S. had better friends than France and Canada? That was until we got a petulant brat as president.

6. Another thing I hate about *bots. They presume to tell me
who I should like/dislike or hate/love. I don't HATE people because they disagree with me, and in the case of France, they agreed with me about Iraq.

9. In rightwingnutWorld, you only have the freedom to AGREE with

Otherwise you are the enemy and a traitor.

Vote AGAINST supporting the troops when the president has a (D)? No problem!

Investigate crimes when the president has a (D)? No problem!

But how DARE you do any of the above when the pResident has an (R) you ENEMY TRAITOR!!!

Hypocrisy, thy name is rightwingnut.

23. The guy in my avatar liked the French a lot !
Reich-wingers are morons.

The corporate rulers exploit the rubes' hatred for anything foreign.

They have to have enemies everywhere to justify the grossly excessive, insane military spending in "the home of the brave." More like the home of the chickenhawks and war profiteers.
