    Actually, Vichy French forces killed American soldiers of the Big Red One during Operation Torch in November 1942.

    And French forces were key in making sure that the US forces got off the beaches of Normandy, not to mention saving thousands of US airmen through various "pipelines".

    You can hate the Vichy French, but the fact is that it was a minority of people that actually supported the Vichy French government, and as soon as the Vichy French troops had a chance to switch sides.. they did.

    The Vichy French were no different than the American politicians and businessmen who supported the Nazi's before the war.. I believe one of them was named Bush. Only real difference was that the French dealt with their traitors.. the American's did not.

    Americans didn't turn over Jews to the Nazis. The French did with enthusiasm.

    The French didn't help American forces off of Normandy. They were hiding so they wouldn't get killed during the fight. Don't be ridiculous. The French are worthless.

    There is no such thing as treason in America.

    Well, except for the Civil War.

    No one I know hates the French. That premise is dead wrong. They are the brunt of jokes no differently than Polish jokes for their ill-perceived shortcomings in WWII. Means nothing.

    well, that settles it then. France surrendering proves there really is a war on terrorism. It's not a real war until France surrenders.

    Don't you ever get tired of generalizing?

    Ordinary frenchmen joyfully turned in their jewish neighbors to the nazis. The SS ST. Louis was a single instance that didn't involve decisions made by ordinary americans.

    Don't seek me out. There is nothing for you to gain by doing so.
