    France's rendezvous with history

    While I am not entirely certain that this article strictly falls under the heading of 'Breaking News", I am convinced that it should be read if people ever wish to understand why France has heretofore not (shall we say) been enamoured of aiding the USA.
    I hope that after reading the article the Moderators will agree with me.

    Re: France's rendezvous with history

    There is a story about a conversation between General de Gaulle, who, as president of the French Republic, telephoned his American counterpart Lyndon B Johnson, to inform him that France had decided to withdraw from the North Atlantic Treaty alliance.

    Since its foundation nearly two decades earlier, Nato had had its headquarters in France. Now Nato would have to move.

    Furthermore, de Gaulle added, it was his intention that all American service personnel should be removed from French soil.

    "Does that include," Johnson is said to have replied, "those buried in it?"
    Owned.

    F'n Brilliant.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
