    When U.S. aircraft went to bomb Libya in the 80's, the French wouldn't let them use French airspace.

    in debating on this site for two years I am familiar with the fact that if someones point is invalidated, they will pretend it wasnt their point by any means possible.

    or deny the information presented to them.

    I don't know anything about that, but the anti-French/anti-American sentiment goes back to the beginning when they viewed us as cultureless colonists. We were always beneath them. Charles deGaul did no one any favors by further taking this to look down on all English speaking nations. And after we embarrassed them over the Suez War they quit NATO. We have always been at odds and it stems from insults and a complete lack of appreciation.

    Are you saying America invaded Libya in 1986 and killed a million people?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I can say playing dumb... well... is dumb. Invading the wrong country and being responsible for the deaths of a million people in the 21st century... well.

    how would you respond?

    Anyways the thread is ready for your dodges...

    put your blinders on

    Only... it's reaaaaaally not.

    I'm trying to figure out where we killed a million people in a single country. Throughout the Pacific...throughout Europe. I believe Vietnam almost had a million.

    But let's not shed too many tears for American imperfection. Europeans are resonsible for tens of millions of deaths for not just one world war, but two. Hell, people are so spun up over the depravities of radical Muslims anymore, they forget that the Midle East never started a World War, nor did it perfect genocide and ethnic cleansing like their neighbors to the north. So I'm not sure what your point is.
