    Any idea how idiotic it is to view these nations by our values?
    I don't think I said anything about viewing them by our standers except the killing your people part. Killing your people when innocent civilians have been killed in painful ways is what A strong leader should avoid especial when its more than a hundred .

    When will you be leaving for the Middle East? And which side do you intend to fight for?

    Or are you one more hypocritical person who is eager to have some other person die so that you can feel good about yourself? What vital national interest would drive us to put our military at risk and spend billions of dollars?

    What proof do you have that the media reports are accurate?

    These leaders don't want to kill innocent civilians. That just makes it harder for them to maintain control. Do you think they are stupid?

    It is not Un Biased responsibility to topple tyrants. However that is the responsibility of our leaders and military. By the way, did you know that during the revolutionary war, the French send warships, soldiers and weapons to the rebels? Did you also know that it is very likely that the revolution would have lost without their support?

    The slogan "something is better than nothing" is the most stupid reason to undertake any action.

    I think you're completely wrong about that. How much time do you spend in France? Which French people are you talking to?

    The Italians ROCK them in food.
    Nonsense.

    Cheese? I'll take 1,000 day Gouda over anything the French bring to the table. Brie tastes just like it smells...a foot.
    That demonstrates more about your somewhat plebeian tastes than it does about French cheese.

    It's why they have to put pastry all over it.
    Pastry? I have never, ever been served Brie in pastry in France. I think that may be an American invention; it sounds ghastly.

    And frankly, nothing rivals mozzarella for taste and versatility.
    Mozzarella? Really? If it had any taste I could maybe agree with the versatility comment.

    Everyone except Russia kicks their buts in cars. I need to own a Peugeot like I need herpes.
    Peugeot's are excellent, well-built cars. Renaults and Citroëns are aimed at the economy end of the market. I'd still rather have one of those than a Chevrolet.

    Wine? Sorry, but our own Nappa valley kicks them in the balls. Italy ain't so bad in that dept, either. And then there are German ice wines. Tasty.
    Uninformed prejudice rather than any substantive complaint.

    What else they got?
    The idea that not everything has to have its worth judged according to capitalist terms? The worth of a nation is not dependent on the size of its economy nor the strength of its military.

    I believe it's the current fashion in the US to use France as a whipping boy for everything people there hate about Europe, but that **** got tired about the time that the French and Germans were proved right on the lack of Iraqi WMDs.

    Croissants are said to come from Vienna (viennoiserie), Cologne (eau de cologne) is the name of a town in Germany, and escargots are eaten by many people in poor communities around the world. Cigarette (-ette is a typically French suffix) originally comes from the Americas; but roulette was invented in France, as well as denim, sleeveless shirts and barb wires. Or so I've heard.
