Were Credit Is Due: Thanking The French

As Robbo the Llama Butcher would say: "Gratuitous Historickal Posting Alert!"

John Miller of NRO (and author of "Our Oldest Ally: America's Disastrous Relationship With France") points out that the 19th is the 225th anniversary of the conclusion of the Battle of Yorktown. This was the final battle of America's War For Independence and one that French forces played a significant role in.

While the motivation of the French government's decision to aid the nascent United States in it's struggle with Great Britain is suspect and often dubious, we ought to take this opportunity to remember the individual French soldiers and sailors who lost their lives in this conflict from 1778-1783. This list of names is here.

Thank you.

Understanding The French (Or At Least Trying To)

French-bashing has usually been popular in the U.S. But since the run up to Iraq it seems like it's hit a fever pitch, particularly among those who strongly support the President. America (and the West) is in the fight of it's life against Islamofacist terrorism and the perception to many in this country is that the French government is doing its best to impede our efforts in this struggle.

How accurate this perception is can be debated ad infinitum. more...
