http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/africa/11/06/ivorycoast.ap/index.html<br><br>Mobs in Ivory Coast tell the French to 'go home' and kill 8 French soldiers. France goes to security council for stronger language in new UN security council resolution. France sends more troops and plans to fight insurgents.<br><br>Sounds familiar?<br><br>*good thing US holds the Security council chair this month and not Germany <br><br>[color:blue]All your sock puppets are belong to us</font color=blue>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p> Crowds went door to door looking for French citizens and set fire to a French school, sending a pall of smoke over the city.<br>"Everybody get your Frenchman!" young men in the mob shouted to each others.<p><hr></blockquote><p> So do you want to join the crowd?<br><br>Hey, good news, One of the injured French soldiers died. Tally is nine!<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
You're a bit mixed up. I was only imitating your disgust of the French. Was I wrong? Why else would you post something like that from the infintite number of items on the internet? <br><br>Or did I mistake your reasoning? As for being sick. No, I like the French. But that makes me something of an oddity these days I guess.<br><br><br><br><br><br>

First, let me say you are a certified dick head assuming you know why I posted the news article without asking me first.<br><br>Do I have digust with the French?<br><br>Absolutely not. I may disagree with their politics but I don't harbor any hatred or ill will to the people of France. I have quite a few friends in France and have spent a significant amount of time and energy translating a Free product called ImageWell into French so it can be enjoyed by Mac users in France.<br><br>The article was posted with commentary to shed light on the situation in the Ivory Coast about the difficulties France is having in asserting peace, not unlike the difficulties the US is having in Iraq. When the chips are down, I am sure the US will be 100% supportive in France's noble efoorts in bringing about peace in a troubled corner of the world. It's not easy and never will be.<br><br>If there was any sarcastic dig, it was towards the politics of Germany, who at this point is left out. Do they support France or do they take the same hard line position with France as they did with US when it came to Iraq. I believe these hard efforts and sacrifices made by France in the Ivory Coast should be commended. After all, it's always easier to sit on the sidelines and criticize the US in Iraq and criticize France in the Ivory Coast.<br><br>Finally, not only are you a dick head, but I think you're a certified lunatic.<br><br>cheers.<br><br>[color:blue]All your sock puppets are belong to us</font color=blue>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p> Finally, not only are you a dick head, but I think you're a certified lunatic.<br> <p><hr></blockquote><p> All this animosity over a little misunderstanding in a thread? Without explaining yourself all that well it seemed you were making light of a difficult situation. One that the United Nations and France has taken seriously. So yes I did miss your meaning that you were poking fun of the German stance of not helping to invade Iraq and not France's. Pardon me. My mistake. I hardly ever understand the punch line of a joke when it involves a story about loss of life.<br><br>You commented in another thread I should breath into a bag. I think you should take your own advice.<br><br>Cheers to you too.<br><br><br><br>
