    Thumbs up Boycott France Products

    I am a huge military supporter, and have served in the Marines for 7+ years and it makes me mad the the French government lies to us and is against us in this war with Iraq. No we have proof that France has been supplying Iraq with military items---now being used against our soldiers out there on the battlefield. I have one friend who I served with years ago at Camp Pendleton that is now dead because of this war, not neccesarily because of France. These are our brothers, sisters, cousins, fathers out there fighting so we need to support our troops and DON'T SUPPORT ANYTHING THAT COMES FROM FRANCE.

    France has every right to disagree with America. But France has moved from simple dissent to active hostility toward America.
    French President Chirac warned East European nations that if they side with America, France will oppose their membership in the European Union.
    This week, William Safire reported in the New York Times that France has been secretly helping to arm Iraq -- and has been helping Iraq build long range missiles. These same missiles may soon be used against American soldiers.
    Just as France is exercising its right to disagree, Americans can exercise their right to boycott -- and avoid helping companies and countries that do not stand with America.

    I was at a zone meeting down in Atlanta for a few days. We get wined and dined by our vendors and it seemed that everyone was on the same page. The bar tenders and wait staff said their franch wines havent moved.
    Meeting was just over a thousand in attendance ;-)
