Uh-Oh! Bush-Haters Won’t Like This

-A French president appreciative of American sacrifice, who expresses solidarity despite differing opinions… Am I dead?

United States (AFP) - US President George W. Bush and his French counterpart Nicolas Sarkozy affirmed their countries' friendship Saturday ahead of a casual lunch, a "heart-to-heart talk" and a brisk boat ride that could signal a new era of closer ties.

"For around 250 years France and the United States have been allies and friends," Sarkozy said as he arrived at Bush's family holiday compound in Kennebunkport, Maine.

"When we see, on the edge of the Atlantic, all the cemeteries with white crosses, those are the young Americans who came to die for us. That is more important than Mr. Sarkozy and Mr. Bush," he said.

"So do we agree on everything? No. Because in a family we can have disagreements. But we are the same family, that is the truth," he said.

And that’s all we ask. You don’t have to agree with our foreign policy. Just stop acting like a bunch of mindless, anti-American fuckheads.
