    <font color="green"> A little snippet from a Reuters news story...

    </font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />
    Unlike France and Germany, which oppose war with Iraq, Italy has offered use of military bases for the refueling of U.S. transport planes bound for the Gulf. Britain has committed 26,000 troops and other equipment.


    Berlusconi (the Prime Minister of Italy) told Bush that the United States was "the guarantee of our democracy and our freedom."


    "We also will never forget that many American lives have been lost and sacrificed ... for us," he said.

    Look what France did back when Reagan bombed Libya. They wouldn't allow us to use their airbases for refueling. The French Embassy in Libya got hit by an "errant" bomb. Iraq is a prime consumer of French goods, so they don't want to piss off a good customer. The Germans, I believe, are probably doing business with the Iraqi's as well.

    I have been to Normandy beach and walked along the graves.
    I don't think any one realizes how many gave their lives on that day untill they see the sea of crosses that seem to go on forever.

    I was watching fox news at lunch today and they said Iraq could really use the French as allies.

    Simple. The Germans are still pissed that they got their A$$ kicked. They are only in with the western world for the money.
    As for those French basterds. It's proven they can't fight to save their butts. Besides that anyone who thinks that all those Frenchies were happy to see the Allied tanks and troops run the Germans out of France are sadly mistaken. Half them sum b!tches were a bunch of collaborators.
    I say **** the both of them arrogant A-holes.

    Cause the Frogs are too busy eating snails and butt banging each other and the Krauts are too busy with their warm beer.
