I just had a revelations last night people... I think that French Colonialist is the problem for the world today!!!! Think of it people!! French is a major country in the world and the 2nd biggest colonialist power in there time, yet...no even one of there colonys was ever successful!! Look at the British empire.... It created USA, Australia, New Zeland, Canada, Fiji and South Africa. All are a superpowers themselves. Not to mention wealthy, smart and respectful... Now lets check the French empire.... It created Vietnam, Lebanon, Sierre Leon, Syria , Iraq, Quebec, Louisiana, Haiti, Senengal, and a couple more small countires... no even one of there countries they made is rich. Some of them are just recoperating from civil wars and autocratic regimes. So in a mild word.. Why don't the Chirac and Co. get some ground troops in Iraq to deal with there 'empire'!!
