I went to Yorktown a while ago, and there is a large monument to the French there...there are many French names on there who were killed in that battle, killed for America.
Many forget that.
Plus, from people I know that have been there, the French are keenly aware of what we've done for them, even though their politicians might not reflect it.
One story in particular that my aunt witnessed was an old man on Normandy Beach, one who had quite obviously landed there on June 6,1944...he told her that a young Frenchman approached him, crying, saying over and over, "Thank you, thank you".
Open your mind a little Lorisco. Not all of your thoughts should come from the conservative websites only.
