Here's how Cavuto signed off today, on his "Common Sense" segment!
Cavuto On Business ^ | 3/27/03 | Cavuto

Posted on 03/27/2003 5:38:24 PM PST by darin2risk

Never mind that France wanted nothing to do with getting rid of Saddam and wants everything to do with rebuilding Iraq after Saddam. Here's the kicker: France says Britain and the U.S. should not have a role -- it's up to the United Nations to decide.

So, let me see if I've got this right. France offered not one soldier, not one plane, not one tank, or ship, convoy or grenade. Not one missile. Not one drop of blood. And yet, France is going to decide the new Iraq?

Well pardon me, Pepe, but I don't think so.

I don't know what amazes me more: How callous the French are, or how arrogant they are. People are still dying in Iraq and they are already tripping over their corpses to cash in on Iraq?

France couldn't lift a hand to a rifle to help us, but is more than willing to go for a few of their precious Euros to screw us?

We fight and die to free a people whose suffering you more than happily ignored. And they saunter in to set up shop so that they can merrily profit?

Please tell me the French word for chutzpa!

France schemes to sell brie, after we've given blood?

France plots business storms, while our guys are choking in sandstorms?

France notifies the world they're ready to do deals, while we have servicemen in this country notifying families of killed soldiers they're ready to do funerals?

What the French lack in guts, they more than make up for in nerve.

France wouldn't help the Iraqi people when they needed rescuing, but is more than willing to dive in and take the money because maybe France needs rescuing.

The French are as morally bankrupt as I hope soon they will be financially bankrupt.

Pity the poor country that calls you a friend and realizes the hand it's holding, is only digging for spare change.

You sicken me."

BRAVO, Neil!!

You have to love this guy for having the nerve to tell it like it is in a politically correct world. Bright, intelligently stated. Love it.

When I saw that I was stunned into silence. He said it all. It's nice to see he's got the GUTS to let them have it. Now if only O'Reilly would point out the fact that the NY Times isn'e being lazy in their coverage, it's that they're deliberately lying to try to defeat Bush.

Okay, we've got to be realistic about the world that lies ahead. Strategically, we need the Russians and Turks. The Germans we can play ball with. But there is one country that needs to be made an example of our wrath. To set an example of what happens when you crap on America.

I nominate France.

You know, I really like French cognac. I love it. I REALLY love it. But, you know what? I'm suddenly developing a taste for MacAllan 18-year-old Scotch whisky. Cognac just doesn't have the appeal it had a year ago.

Screw the French.

When the war is over the allies should make a concerted effort to let the free Iraqis know where the French stood
when it came to their freedom.

I'm sure the Iraquis already know. I'm also sure that the French realize this and that's what they're REALLY afraid of: a free Iraq telling the French that they'll slit their throats before buying anything from France or selling them one drop of oil.

Watch the fun.

Great post! Yes, it was imbedded in another thread, but it certainly deserves a thread of its own. I sent a quick e-mail to Neil Cavuto congratulating him on such an excellent synopsis.

O'Reilly reported a factoid tonight that Paris (typically one of the top ten international desinations for Americans) fell off the list of the fifty top international cities in terms of airline reservations this spring and summer.

And since Neil has the #1 Business news show...I'm glad to know lots of other people are hearing him too!

Have you considered dropping the frog king a note letting him know how you feel about him and his band of moron bastards? Here's what I sent via USPS on Saturday. Sent it via mail with 3 U.S. Flag stamps.

French President Jacques Chirac
Monsieur Le President de la Republique
Palais de l'Elysee
55, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore
75008 Paris
FRANCE

Dear President Chirac,

Just a quick note to ensure you understand millions of Americans will never forget you and your country’s cowardice.

We have somewhat considered you an ally and a friend. That perception has recently shifted for all times. And trust me, it is permanent.

I and millions of other Americans are now encouraging our elected officials, President Bush’s administration and business leaders to change their thinking about France. You will see in the future a new punitive approach towards our relationship with your country.

Don’t expect a public announcement regarding this shift. But it will happen.

With friends like France who needs enemies. We are quickly discovering who our real friends are. It is not you or your country. I imagine a few years down the road there will be hell to pay for your position in the history books and your political party’s future.

We’re tired of your slander and your weak knees. Thanks for all your help in the United Nations.

Yours truly,
