But my entire point was that I would never advocate bombing them for that, and in fact I love visiting them and learning more about the cultures and histories in those very places that I disagree with so much.
The poster I was complaining about was very conservative, and probably didn't like France for being socialist, haughty and European. But because of his dislike of French politics, he said he would rather visit Paris in a bomber.
I'm saying, that's petty and sad. You don't have to agree with a place politically to find it interesting, fun and full of great people. My example was the American South -- great people, great history, great culture, awful, awful politics.
