    I don't know how much truth (if any) is contained in this letter, but it
    makes a good story anyway.


    AN INTERESTING LETTER HOME FROM AN ARMY SGT


    Dear Dad,

    A funny thing happened to me yesterday at Camp Bondsteel (Bosnia): A
    French army officer walked up to me in the PX, and told me he thought we
    (Americans) were a bunch of cowboys for provoking a war in Iraq. He said
    if such a thing happens, we wouldn't be able to count on the support of
    France. I told him that it didn't surprise me. Since we had come to
    France's rescue in World War I, World War II, Vietnam, and the Cold War,
    their ingratitude and jealousy was due to surface at some point in the
    near future anyway.

    I also told him that is why France is a third-rate military power with a
    socialist economy and a bunch of faggots for soldiers. I further advised
    him that America, being a nation of deeds and action, not words, would
    do whatever it had to do, and that any support from France was only for
    show anyway.Like in all NATO or UN exercises, the US would shoulder
    85% of the total burden,as evidenced by the fact that this French
    officer was shopping in an American operated PX, and not the other way
    around.

    He began to get belligerent at that point, and I told him if he would
    like to, I would meet him outside in front of the PX and whip his ass in
    front of the entire Multi-National Brigade East, thus demonstrating that
    even the smallest Americans had more fight in them than an average
    Frenchman.

    He called me a barbarian cowboy and walked away in a huff. With friends
    like the French, who needs enemies?

    Tell Mom I love her.

    Your daughter, Mary Beth Johnson, Staff Sergeant, U.S. Army

    P.S. I thought the Americans and the French would have been firm friends. You both got your arses kicked in South East Asia.

    "I was just thinking about this cartoon I once saw. A bunch of tiny fish are swimming through the leaves of a plant, but then one of the fish realizes, it's not a plant, it's the tentacles of a predator, and the fish says, 'With friends like this, who needs anemones?'"

    l thought the bit about saving their ass in Vietnam was particularly funny. As BB said, you got your ass kicked by a bunch of rice farmers.

    I know of a saying:

    France is a beautiful country, pity the french live there.

    [/runs for cover from guillaume ]


    And now i just read in the paper of today, that despite the fact the french

    allways complain (la grogne) and whine(with wine.....), they get older and

    keep growing in numbers............

    Life-expectation for the average frenchman in 2004: 83,3 years.....

    (a rise of 10 months over the last two years......... )

    Only Japan scores better........

    It also says the french have a relatively low number of people with obesitas,

    partly due to the fact they adapt less to the American Way of SuperSize Me

    than other westeuropean countries........


    They must be doing something right...........

    I thought racist jokes were only allowed in the Funny Stuff (sic) section.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    Meh.

    You know, I've always wondered why you had it so bad that a third-rate, despicable, faggot-peopled country refused to follow you in your foolish war in Iraq.

    Despite what you think, know that we actually don't hate Americans. We are actually grateful for what happened when your country decided to join "the fun" in WWII. But hey, since you don't seem to know anything about history, I can't blame you.

    I can't speak for all the French but I do not hate anyone, I just pity stupide people.
    Now, you (try to) guess how I think of you.




    BTW, Camp Bondsteel is situated in Kosovo, not Bosnia. So now I realise that you don't know anything about geography too.
    Now, next time you want shit smeared all over someone else's country, ask an intelligent American (like J2k4) to do it, because he's so much better at it. Damn, he even cuts and pastes better than you.

    Well said, mate.
