    Yeah but we use it on CRIMINALS! Robespierre used it on whoever he wanted, after giving them a trial that was just for show. In the U.S., we take great pains to make sure the jury is unbiased etc., Robespierre took great steps to make sure it was biased. You are still not addressing the issue. Just admit it, your precious Frenchmen screwed up in their failed revolution. Maybe if France still had a monarchy, it wouldn't be a second rate country today.

    WikiAnswers - How do you say yes yes in French is there a specific phrase or is it oui oui which sounds like wee wee

    Yeah, I bet the innocent people released from Gitmo have a different experience of your rule of law.

    Now please enlight us with your superb wit and answer my question as it still stands here: Would you do the Vietnam/Iraq war all over again if you could?

    A hundred times over again if I could. I don't suffer the French's weak stomach for deliberate action when it is needed. We Americans actually know how to fire our weapons instead of just dropping them in a full retreat.

    Hey, Sherlock Holmes, the people at Gitmo weren't U.S. Citizens! The people Robespierre executed WERE French citizens. There is still no comparison.

    Your question has no bearing on this debate, but to answer it...No, I would not do Vietnam over again, yes I would do Iraq over again. My reason is that the war in Iraq has made some major accomplishments, such as removing a tyrant and setting up a democracy.

    Other nations hold emergency drills, France holds national surrender drills

    They didn't all drop their weapons in full retreat. Some died fighting. The reason they sucked was they failed to recognize mobilde warfare, and so forth got surronded, along with the Brit's.
