    Washington - Even as United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan implored President George W. Bush to deploy U.S. troops to Liberia "before it's too late," Bush indicated again yesterday that he hadn't made up his mind on the size or scope of a U.S. force there.
    My answer:

    We're a little busy right now, perhaps you should ask the French. They don't seem to have anything to do lately.

      I think that is a great idea. I think Liberia is one of the few contries that the French have not given up to. It would be good for the Liberian troops morale.

          Hey LT

          They tried that before, they undercomitted the manpower from the Foreign Legion, the troopers got dumped on by the locals to such a degree they took casualties, and had to withdraw to strong points before being evacuated.

              Hold that thought............

              Apparently....the French already have troops in Africa. (Not Liberia)

              KINSHASA - French peacekeepers found the hacked bodies of 22
              elderly people, women and children in a village outside the
              Congolese town of Bunia after trading gunfire with militiamen, a
              spokesman said.
              The bodies provided the latest evidence of massacres taking
              place beyond the protection of the French troops, who began
              deploying in Bunia last month to shield residents from clashes
              between ethnic Hema and Lendu militia.

                Although I am leary of the US becoming the police force for the world, we kind of have a moral responsibility to get involved in Liberia. The country has a very strong American influence. The coutnry was patriated by freed slaves in the late 1800's following the Civil War and was assisted by the US government. We kind of stood by and watched while the place was ravaged by civil unrest and corrupt government after corrupt government. This is one of the most impoverished nations on earth. While there are no WMD here, there is a tyrannical dictator who has been responsible for the deaths of thousands upon thousands of lives.

                Oh yeah...screw the French.

                      litle disappointed in the remarks here. I happen to have french heritage an i take offense to these remarks thet the french are cowards. I am not a coward i put my life on the line like the rest of you and so do our brothers and sister firefighters over there. because they chose not to support us in our efforts that is their choice like it was ours. We don't control them they have their own free will. We don't hear them bitching about us taking so long to get involved in WWII. We have helped each other out over history, they helped us become america and we freed them from Hitler. Remeber we have some very shady things in our history, we aren't completely innocent. Mater of fact the french rescued my family from a german death camp they are pretty much responible for me being here. My brother has french heritage he is in the Army he is still over there is he a coward. This is childish like renaming french fries (American in invetion), french toast (Belgian). Please show a little tolerance, we are supposed to set the example as firefighters, an predjudice is not a good example to set. Your welcome to call me names or whatever i would never want my children or my nephew to see people behave like this. I don't care if they bash us we are supposed to be the better example, cause this is a great country and we are all diffrent.

                        Robertsc, We are in a WAR on TERROR. Your with us or against us. The French Government made it clear what side there on. Not only on this but I remember a F 111 that crashed during the Beirut days. Why? Robertsc what I am saying is the any Government that does not help in the WAR on TERROR should be Boycotted. Starting with the FRENCH !
                        According to the American Battle Monuments Commission
                        There are 26,255 Yankee dead from World War I buried in 4 cemeteries in France.
                        There are 30,426 American dead from World War II buried in 6 cemeteries in France.

                          Robertsc...

                          Be proud of your heritage. Be disgusted by the recent history of France. Their failure to step up in the war on terrorism, while supplying wepons and technology to Iraq, is deplorable. It is really that simple.

                          As far as France helping the US. Sure, in my estimation that was 227 years ago and they were late then too. We saved them from speaking German twice and replaced them in Viet Nam. So it seems they owe the US now.

                          I have told people for years I disliked the French more than I ever did the Soviets. Why? The Soviets were up front about wanting to destroy us. The French pretend to be our friends when it suits them, like when they are being invaded, and choose to despise the US when it suits them, like when they might actually have to step up and do something other than whine.

                          I will not apologize for my hard line on this. This is not the time to sit on the fence or stand on the wrong side of it and do nothing. Our way of life is under attack and it is time to stand up and defend it to the fullest. Destroy those that want to destroy us. With or without the help of the world.

                          Maybe it's not too late
                          To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

                            Nobody called you or your brother a coward. The French people, historically, have depended upon foreign governments to bail their butts out of trouble every single time they were up against the wall. I have zero tolerance or sympathy for the French government. Historically, the French people hate Americans. This is odd to me when you sonsider that if it weren't for the US, German would be the national language of France right now. In addition, your comment about WWII is patently offensive. We should exhume every single body of a US soldier that is buried in France and bring them home. The ingratitude over the supreme sacrifice made by so many US soldiers to protect them.

                            As I have said so many times before...screw France.
