    I find it hard to believe our “allies” aren’t all spying on each other. You don’t think France is spying on Germany and vice versa?!? Even in a friendly poker game with all my buds, I’d still like to know what cards they’re holding.

    We never invaded France. That was just two summer-vacations gone horribly wrong…

    Yeah, but you wouldn’t cheat, would you? Like, putting a mirror on the ceiling or so. Because if your friends find out they are no longer your friends. We have a very open relationship with France, we are partners in keeping the EU above water and the Euro stable. We can’t afford to anger each other or we will both suffer, history has proven THAT beyond any reasonable point…

    My mistake. I did notice that the times I was in France. Lots of Germans in Speedos on the beaches. My eye sight hasn’t recovered fully….

    You need to read Graham Greene. Specifically, The Quiet American, where Greene writes that, as a reporter, all his stories were censored, but, as a novelist writing fiction, he could tell the Trvth.

    Yeah, but we stiffed France on the huge debt we ran up in the Revolutionary War.

    That’s alright… They stiffed us for WW 1 and 2…

    Michael, read “The Quiet American” also highly recommend his “The Comedians” about what happened in Haiti, speaking of French colonial influence and outcomes!

    But, all Christians in Europe, the UK, and the US owe a debt of gratitude to the French that we can never truly repay. This would especially be true of the bible belt evangelistic ultra conservative types. Let me give out with a little world history.


    After the death of Muhammad himself, the caliphs of the Muslim religion continued to expand the Islamic Empire greatly. They expanded from Saudi Arabia across the entire northern section of the African Continent in less than 100 years, and then crossed the Straights of Gibraltar and took over the Iberian Peninsula (now modern Spain and Portugal). They then crossed the Pyrenees Mountains and were moving through South Western France. Their expansion was only stopped by the Great Christian leader Charlemagne, and his Franks (ancient Gauls, modern French) at the Battle of Tours in 732 AD.


    If that had not happened, it is no great stretch of the imagination that the Islamic Empire would have conquered all of not only France, but Western Europe as well (I guess we as Christians, should also owe a large debt of similar gratitude to the Turks, that stopped the other end of the Islamic Empire at the Byzantine Empire before the gates of Constantinople). In turn, this would have meant that the Norman Conquest of the Anglo Saxons of Briton in 1066 AD would have been an Islamic conquest as well. And guess what would have eventually been the major religion of the US now? Yeah, we would all now be good Muslims, living under Sharia Law!!

    Not true.

    In 1795, the United States was finally able to settle its debts with the French Government with the help of James Swan, an American banker who privately assumed French debts at a slightly higher interest rate. Swan then resold these debts at a profit on domestic U.S. markets. The United States no longer owed money to foreign governments, although it continued to owe money to private investors both in the United States and in Europe.

    If our “allies” behind closed doors are doing/saying the same thing they say in public, then what’s the harm in confirming that with a little “intel”. On the other hand, what happens if we find out they’re “bluffing” in public. I consider that to be a national security issue and a welcome advantage. By the way, I don’t play cards because there is NO such thing as a “friendly game” when money is involved :-) I read your posts and generally agree with you. However in this case I think it’s naive to assume that “allies” all have the same vested interest. My wife and I don’t agree on everything so how can we expect our “allies” to be in unison all the time. I simply believe it’s an effective tool to ensure we’re all on the same page. Frankly I suspect they’re as pissed as they are because we caught ‘em doing just that. Saying one thing in public and working against that statement in private. How DARE you spy on me (caught me doing something didn’t ’ya).
