This was e-mailed to me recently. These are powerful images and should be noted by all Americans.
Here are some photos that are worth a thousand words. Now I'm understanding the anger...
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. 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 might have been 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:
