At a time when our president and other politicians tend to apologize for our country's prior actions, here's a refresher on how some of our former patriots handled negative comments about our country.

JFK'S
Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60's when
DeGaule decided to pull out of NATO.  DeGaule said he wanted all US
military out of France as soon as possible.  
Rusk
responded "does that include those who are buried
here?

DeGuale
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.'

You
could have heard a pin drop.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


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
intended 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?'

You could have heard a pin drop
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


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.'

You
could have heard a pin drop.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


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 your 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."

I liked those stories. Very Happy  It's kind of funny how the same countries that talk crap about the U.S.A. are usually the ones that are the first to ask for help in the time of need.  When I was kid, someone was talking crap about you, you would let it go a bit and then you would just haul off and punch them in the face.  Maybe it's time for our "leaders" to start punching back?
