Remember back when the whole “should the US invade Iraq” discussion was going on. And there were all those anti-french sites? And the google bomb thingy pointing to pages like this, well recently came across a response to those, and while some valid points are brought up about French victories that isn’t really why I’m mentioning it. Think of this paragraph as background information :)
The point I was interested in was (1)Do people still use the term “glorious” when discussing military matters? and (2)Why should it be taken as given that people hate the French? I mean even if you were totally opposed to France’s stance, surely people can disagree fundamentally with each other and yet no hate each others? Maybe we should start to respect all people, no matter if they are our enemies?
