The Despicable French
    #1425434 - 04/03/03 06:19 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I don't post here often, but what the French did to a war memorial recently has simply outraged me. We (UK/US) liberated France on more than one occasion, and this is how they continue to thank us. Next time the cowardly French surrender to the nazis/communists, I don't think we should intervene. In fact I think we should invade France next. Or at least blow up the tunnel that connects them to us!  :mad: :mad:

From  Source



UK GRAVES DESECRATED

A British military cemetery in France has been desecrated with anti-war graffiti.

The memorial at Etaples, near Boulogne, was daubed in red paint with the insults "Rosbeefs (British) go home", "Saddam will win and he will make you bleed".


Another said: "Dig up your rubbish, it is contaminating our soil."

French officials said opposition to war in Iraq was no excuse for venting hatred.

The vandalism was discovered by workers at the site who then set to work to remove the paint.

They had to grind down the stone to remove the shadow of the words left behind.

Peter Francis, of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, said the incident was "particularly foul".

"The reaction of the people who found it was shock, upset and disgust, which was our reaction as well," he said.

"I think that was also the reaction of the local people and the French authorities."

Some 11,000 British servicemen and women are buried at the cemetery, most of whom died defending France in WWI.

Dude, you must be fucking brain damaged.

Some idiots vandalize something, and you blame the entire country.

The US is filled with morons who would easily do the same thing.

If you ever come to Canada I'd beat the shit out of you because that American Jeffery Dahmer was fucked.

Yeah, whatever. Pity they don't use it - historically and presently they are cowards.

I suppose if the US vandalized a Canadian tribute to fallen heroes you'd have nothing to say?

Oh but thats never gonna happen anyway, cos just like France, no tributes exist - just the same cowardly mentality!

***edited by Rono***. The Canadians fought in WW1 and 2, and there were many killed, they joined both wars before the US did. On D-Day, the Canadians were the only country to acheive all of their goals. The Canadians were instrumental in liberating the Dutch during WW2, and the Dutch maintain a massive tulip memorial in Ottawa as a show of thanks.

Also, I seriously doubt the entire US would come and vandalize a Canadian memorial. Which is my point. All of France did not vandalize that memorial. A few people that happened to be french did.

I'm sure there is anti-french vandalism going on in the US right now as well.

With what kind of logic do you figure that all of France is responsible for this vandalism? Should every single american be jailed when one american commits a crime?

Exactly. Unlike americans, we don't pop an artery in our brains every time someone disrespects us. Maybe you suffer from some sort of personality disorder which prevents you from being able to brush off shit that doesn't really matter.

It's just a fucking memorial. Nobody was hurt when it got spraypainted.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers
