I got this in email from my sister today.

Millions of Americans are joining the Boycott France campaign led by is leading the Boycott France campaign because American lives and security is at stake.

France has every right to disagree with America. But France has moved from simple dissent to active hostility toward America.

French President Chirac warned East European nations that if they side with America, France will oppose their
membership in the European Union.

This week, William Safire reported in the New York Times that France has been secretly helping to arm Iraq -- and
has been helping Iraq build long range missiles. These same missiles may soon be used against American soldiers.

Just as France is exercising its right to disagree, Americans can exercise their right to boycott -- and avoid
helping companies and countries that do no stand with

Wow, if that is true about France secretly arming Iraq, the guess what? That puts France on EQUAL footing with them, as a threat to U.S. security!

I think a WHOLE LOT MORE than a economic boycott is in order. Sounds to me like SERIOUS governmental intervention is the next step. I think, at the very least, a total stoppage of French product shipment to these shores should be instituted!

Carefull guys, we helped arm Iraq too ! We gave them Anthrax and Nerve gas, we also gave them the computers to design and build their rockets ! We thought they would only use them on Iran ! Now that they could use them on us it is another story ! The U.S.and the Soviets sold weapons to anyone who would pay, now we will pay ! The old defense network made billions selling the stuff to them, now they will make billions supplying our troops so we can take the stuff away from them ! Thats a pretty good business ! France has kind of pissed on us for the last 90 years except when they needed us, but they are not the only ones with dirty money in their pockets !
