PATRIOTIC REPSONSES TO INSULTS FROM FOREIGNORS

JFK'S
Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in  France  in the early 60's when
DeGaulle decided to pull out of NATO.  DeGaulle said he wanted all  US  
military out of  France  as soon as possible.

Rusk responded, "Does that include those who are buried here?"

DeGaulle did not respond.

You could have heard a pin drop.

When in  England, at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the
Archbishop of  Canterbury  if our plans for  Iraq  were just an example of
'empire building' by George Bush.
 
He answered by saying, "Over the years, the  United States  has sent many of
its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom
beyond our borders.  The only amount of land we have ever asked for
in return is enough to bury those that did not
return."

There was a conference in France

where a number of international engineers
were taking part, including French and American.  During a break,
one of the French engineers came back into the room saying, "Have you
heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft
carrier to  Indonesia  to help the tsunami victims.  What does he
intend to do, bomb them?"

 
A Boeing engineer

stood up and replied quietly:  "Our carriers have three
hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are
nuclear powered and can supply emergency  electrical power to
shore facilities; they have three  cafeterias with the capacity to
feed 3,000 people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand
gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a
dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and
from their flight deck.  We have eleven such ships;

how many does  France  have?"

A  U.S.  Navy Admiral

was attending a naval conference that included
Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French
Navies  At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large
group of officers that included personnel from most of those countries.
Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a
French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many
languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, "Why is it that
we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than
speaking French?"

 
Without hesitating,

the American Admiral replied, "Maybe it's because the
Brit's, Canadians, Aussie's and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't
have to speak German."

AND
THIS STORY FITS RIGHT IN WITH THE ABOVE...

 
Robert Whiting,

an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in  Paris  by plane.

At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport

in his carry on.

 
"You
have been to  France  before, monsieur?" the customs officer asked
sarcastically.

 
Mr. Whiting

admitted that he had been to  France  
previously.

 
"Then
you should know enough to have your passport ready."

 
The American said,

"The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it."

 
"Impossible..
Americans always have to show their passports on arrival in  France  !"

 
The American senior

gave the Frenchman a long hard look.  Then he
quietly explained, ''Well, when I came ashore at  Omaha   Beach  on D-Day in
1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find a single Frenchmen
to show a passport to."
