    For me, I'm pretty sure Bin Laden is dead. I just don't buy any of this.

    Maybe if I saw a video tape or something... I unno, you'd figure if this guy had the recourses to evade capture from a world superpower, he could get his hands on a crappy video camera...

    I really don't get the French surrender meme. They've fought and won a lot more wars than we have, and they've been doing it longer. Hell, even when a vastly superior force overran their country and occupied it, their official surrender was mostly in name only because the resistance kept fighting throughout and had a critical role in intelligence that made D-Day possible.

    Read a history book some time. The French have been pretty badass.

    Not for a long time. They also managed to hand over thousands of jews to the germans and managed to contribute some 50,000 or so volunteers to the german armed forces opposing the russians. Let's not forget before surrending they did manage to kill a few americans on the beaches of north africa too. As you indicated.....it's all in the history books.

    They also got us into Vietnam...the jerks.

    But they won't surrender here, they hate Muslims.

    France has plenty arrogance. Especially when it affected their contract deals with Saddam Hussein in the area of nuclear power and weapons. Our troops didn't find weapons shipped to Hussein shortly before the war began. So we don't owe the French anything.

    Yeah! You guys are a bunch of surrender monkeys. Stand underneath the Arc de Triumph and notice all the battles and victories mentioned were long ago. France is the country of Vichy not Napolean.

    Vichy France. Get with the program. The French are no longer the people of Napolean and Charles Martel.

    So it aint like France would "surrender" now, since they have not done so to terror the last 40 years.. so why all of a sudden start now... just because a bunch of ....... American's think it is funny to make fun of the French surrender in WW2.
    Are you not shocked by the anti-French feelings you see on this board? We really don't like you folks.

    While Americans might hate on the French. And call them weak. The French have always been involved in American wars and they have always been on our side. So we should realize that the French will not withdraw. They are our friends and we will continue to fight together.

    Now you know how Stosh and Stan feel. Or the rabbi, the priest and the minister. ;-)

    All in good fun, PeteEU.
