Default Boycott France - I'm trying but I need your assistance

I've been inundated with emails telling me that I should Boycott the French. Anything less would be Unamerican. So I went thru my house and I made a list of eveything that I should either get rid of or avoid in the future. Here'* my list so far. Please add to this list anything you think I may have forgotten.

In my 2 car garage I'm selling the Peugeot, the Renault and the Citroen so no more French cars for me! I'm going cold turkey on my daily dose of Dom Perignon Champagne and drinking Kentucky Wild Turkey instead!!! So no more French Champagne for me.
No more French
Wine
Bread
Salad Dressing
Connection
Fries
Cut Beans
Cut Briefs
Roast Coffee
Roast Chicken
Braids
Furniture
Open
Quarter
Cuisine
Perfume
Revolution
Cruller
Dictionary
Cuffs
Horn AND
Kissing(although I'm Definitely gonna go thru withdrawal sypmtoms on THAT one!)

Are you serious?
If you are , then you are blind.
I love the US and I am for this war 100%
However , the US is in violation a several war crimes!
PLease do not start a flame war , instead , try to convince me that I am wrong!
We are wrong for attacking so soon.
We cannot expect other countries to follow the UN when we can't listen to them !

Its a sensitive topic eh?...geez...

Although I have heard that France is spearheading talks with the US and Iraq to exile Saddam to an island somewhere. Any validity to that?

And I'll stick with French Fries, Freedom fries (as they are now called in the kitchens of the US gov't) just doesn't cut it.

The french Government (not the people mind you) have lost all respect in my eyes. They've been supporting Iraq for years. Guess where Iraq got the plutonium to start their nuclear program? One guess.

France. Really smart. Lets give the criminal something he can make a weapon out of. Good job. Let'* give something dangerous to a PSYCHOTIC criminal that has already killed thousands of his own people while perfecting he chemical and biological weaponry.

Sorry guys, I know some won't agree, so I won't flame, but it'* way past time to put him away and do a favor for the Iraqi people.

I saw footage today of some very happy Iraqi'* helping US Marines tear down pictures of Saddam off of buildings. Makes it all worth it.

BTW for those who don't know, I was a Marine.

I totaly agree. We should've finished this in '91 when we had the chance. Now it will be a bit harder to acomplish everything.

The "GUY" (Monster) Needed to be killed or thrown on some unknwon desert island when we had the chance.

SIR! I'm not sure if it was France that supplied Saddam with Plutonium(but who else could have at that time). BUT many years ago they did supply Iraq with a Nuclear Reactor. Israel'* F-16'* destroyed it before it was able to go on-line. The French have been supplying Iraq with a rocket propellant called HTBP. You can read it here in the NY Times http://www.nytimes.com/2003/03/20/opinion/20SAFI.html

No French Toast for me!!!

Why would the US be friends with them. They have always had a grunge with US. Like when Iran was bombing Kuwait for their oil. Even Iraq'* people don't like him, why do you think all the troops are surendering and their people destroying pics of his ugly face on it. You need to get your facts straight. Terrioust punks.
