Fireworks ban in France


France announced today that it plans to ban fireworks at Euro Disney, following last night's display that caused soldiers at a nearby French army garrison to surrender.

 ;D Good to find some people with a sense of humor.

In the long run I have some doubts that a war will solve much.  Yet, Saddam must go.  Democratizing the region, even if it takes centuries, isn't a bad idea.  And the French position is absolutely hypocritical.

So, here are some more jokes:

"France has neither winter nor summer nor morals. Apart from these drawbacks it is a fine country. France has usually been governed by prostitutes."

--Mark Twain


"I would rather have a German division in front of me than a French one behind me."
-- General George S. Patton


"Going to war without France is like going deer hunting without your accordion."
--General Norman Schwartzkopf


"We can stand here like the French, or we can do something about it."
--Marge Simpson
