I bet Kennedy, Pelosi and Reid would disagree.

Peggy Noonan writes some good editorials. This isn’t the first story I’ve heard about French men and women of a certain age being kind to Americans.

"We should ponder, some day when this is over, what it is we do to grow such men, and women, what exactly goes into the making of them."

It's called freedom and a NON conscripted military.....people who want to FREE others!

“A funny thing. We’re so used to thinking of American troops as good guys that we forget: They’re good guys! They have American class.”

Amen, so absolutely correct.

“...what it is we do to grow such men, and women, what exactly goes into the making of them.”

I’d say GOD, Love, Morality, and Freedom should sum it up nicely.

Wow. Heed these words and take the time to read her whole editorial. Thank you, Peggy.

I am a soldier. I have to point out that a Frenchmen of the age in the article was probably Vichy if he wasn’t fighting. Piss on him and his brothers who supplied weapons to sadaam that were used to kill our young men and women. My friend was killed by a french rocket in October 2003. The rocket was produced in June 2003, after the war had started. That means the french were shipping newly produced weapons to the bad guys. french suck. Vichy sucks too. This miscreant frog was vichy and didn’t care whether he was kneeling to nazis or to degaulle.

Pissants all. Good job Peggy, but you were duped with a dusty bottle, and an intrinsically french frenchman.

Kit.
