Default What do you guys think of France?

This was e-mailed to me this morning. What do you guys think of this?

66,033 Americans are Buried or Missing in France.
Many thousands more died fighting for France
but are buried and honored here in the US.

Thanks France

For the first time, AMERICA was seeking help from France. . .but France has turned her back!!!

Please remember these Dead Americans when you go shopping, as the French seem to have forgotten them.
France has every right to disagree with America, but France has moved from simple dissent to active hostility toward America. France President Chirac warned East European nations that if they sided with the US, France would oppose their membership in the European Union. This very week, William Safire reported in the New York Times that France has been secretly helping to arm Iraq and has been helping Irag build long range missiles. These same missiles may NOW possibly be used against our own US soldiers. Just as France has exercised its right to disagree, all Americans can exercise their right to boycott and help countries that do not stand with us.. French Products and Companies to Boycott:

Air France
Air Liquide
Airbus (airplanes in commercial use)
Allegra (allergy medication)

Lastly, a French compay was awarded a $700 million plus contract to operate the 55 mess halls of our US Marine facilities. Call your congressman and ask that this be rescinded regardless of the cost. This is an absolute insult to our Marines.

This boycott has been promoted by NewsMax's and has been frequently mentioned by Bill O'Reilly on the O'Reilly Factor.

France did help America... in the Revolutionary war, but only because it was against England. I guess they think we still owe them for that even though America and England are the main reason that German is not the official language of France. Ask a Frenchman about the rootstock of the great French vineyards. They don't want to talk about the blight that threatened the French wine industry or how the vines were grafted to blight-resistant AMERICAN rootstock. Those old vines are still growing on American roots.
America is a great place to take aid and money from, but give nothing in return, except a statue for New York Harbor.
Fotunately, I have used very few of the products on the list, now I won't use any!

As further clarification....Air Liquide makes and sells industrial gases (Oxygen, Nitrogen, welding gases, Helium etc.)
Also....there is a HUGE French company called Pernod. They own or manufacture over HALF of the current liquor companies in the US.
