France related quotes

"an interesting phenomena taking place here in America about the French ... a backlash against the French, not stirred up by anybody except the people." - "There is a sense of frustration and disappointment amongst the American people toward the French decision. That's realistic. People didn't understand the decisions by the French leadership to thwart the American desire, and the desire of others, to work on security and freedom security for our countries and freedom in Iraq. I've got work to do to convince the skeptics in France that the intentions of the United States are positive, And the French leadership has got work to do to convince the American people that they are concerned about the security of our country." - U.S. President George W. Bush

"Is France an ally or an adversary of the United States?" - U.S. Vice President Richard Cheney

"France is no longer an ally of the United States and the NATO alliance must develop a strategy to contain our erstwhile ally or we will not be talking about a NATO alliance" - Richard Pearl

"American power was considered (by France) to be more dangerous than Saddam Hussein, to put it bluntly,", "This is something we simply do not understand.", "could not understand why liberating Iraq could not be considered to be a just cause... The way this issue was presented (by Paris) caused lots of dismay." - U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice

"Germany has been a problem, and France has been a problem," - "But you look at vast numbers of other countries in Europe. They're not with France and Germany on this, they're with the United States." Germany and France represent "old Europe." - U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld

"France Should Pay For Opposing Iraq War" - "The French have behaved in ways ... that have been very damaging to NATO. I think France is going to pay some consequences, not just with us but with our countries who view it that way." - Paul Wolfowitz

"France has neither winter nor summer nor morals. Apart from these drawbacks it is a fine country.”
" France has usually been governed by prostitutes." - Mark Twain

We can stand here like the French, or we can do something about it." - Marge Simpson

"The last time the French asked for 'more proof' it came marching into Paris under a German flag." - David Letterman

"I don't know why people are surprised that France won't help us get Saddam out of Iraq. After all, France wouldn't help us get the Germans out of France!" - Jay Leno

"I would rather have a German division in front of me than a French one behind me." - General George S. Patton

"What do you expect from a culture and a nation that exerted more of its national will fighting against Disney World and Big Macs than against the Nazis?" - Dennis Miller

"Going to war without France is like going deer hunting without your accordion." - General Norman Schwarzkopf

"The only time France wants us to go to war is when the German Army is sitting in Paris sipping coffee." - Regis Philbin

"You know why the French don't want to bomb Saddam Hussein? Because he hates America, he loves mistresses and wears a beret. He is French, people." - Conan O'Brien

"As far as I'm concerned, war always means failure." - Jacques Chirac, President of France
"As far as France is concerned, you're right." - Rush Limbaugh

"Oh, I've been picking on the French people for 15 years. I don't like French people. I felt that during World War II France betrayed us. I believe that what they did was the most cowardly act. That when the Nazis marched into France, the French bent over. They not only accepted the Nazis and did little to fight them, but they produced. Do you know they were the number one producers of products for the Nazis during WWII? When you're a conquered people, you can slow down production a little bit. I never saw people enthusiastically and vigorously support the Nazi regime like this by producing and putting out the greatest output of goods for the Nazis." - Howard Stern

Perhaps it's because France will sell its soul to the devil:

“The first, Jacques Chirac, described the second, Saddam Hussein, as a personal friend, showed him around a French nuclear reactor and invited him to his home for the weekend. It was about this time that the prime minister was nicknamed Jacques Iraq.”
French industry stands to lose - By John Laurenson, International Herald Tribune, March 7, 2003

Building the chronically belligerent Saddam Hussein a nuclear reactor.

Providing the Ayatollah Khomeini a shelter in which he planned the fundamentalist Islamic revolution that transformed Iran into a state whose internal systems of oppression and export of terror caused great damage both internally and within the Mideast.

Admiring and assisting the Father of modern terrorism, Yasser Arafat.

The Israeli Crime That Wasn’t - FrontPageMagazine, December 28, 2004

"French state-owned television is using what some call intimidation and threatened libel lawsuits to quiet calls for an investigation of TV images that showed the alleged shooting of a Palestinian boy by Israeli soldiers in 2000.

The video from the TV channel France 2 has become famous around the world as a symbol for the current Palestinian intifada (uprising) and shows a boy trying to take shelter behind a man during a gun battle in September 2000 between Palestinians and Israeli soldiers at the Netzarim junction in the Gaza Strip.

Independent media analysts in France and Israel have provided what they call conclusive evidence that the video of the incident was staged and at least one member of the French Assembly has called for an official investigation of the episode, but France 2 has so far refused to undertake a comprehensive inquiry.", January 13, 2005

"That image has had great influence," said Daniel Leconte, a former France 2 correspondent. "If this image does not mean what we were told, it is necessary to find the truth."


"When the report first aired, France 2 offered its exclusive footage for free to the world's television netw
orks, saying it did not want to profit from the images.

The scenes were filmed by its Palestinian cameraman, Talal Abu Rahma, who was the only one to capture images of what Enderlin characterized then as the killing of a child by gunfire from the Israeli position. Enderlin was not present during the shooting."

[Four years after state-run France 2 television freely distributed the video, which was featured in every evening newscast in the world as the definitive image of Israel’s inhumanity and violence, this is what France 2 has to say today about the incident: - MidEastTruth]

"It's a crazy story," said Arlette Chabot, the station's deputy general director. "Every time we address one question, then another question surfaces. It's very difficult to fight a rumor. The point is that four years later, no one can say for certain who killed him, Palestinians or Israelis."
