Isn’t war supposed to be hell?

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.
