A comment by Michael Dorosh on Tertian Fever ♠ Fièvre Tierce

Don't see why this is such a surprise to anyone, given the childishness the Americans displayed at the very thought of (gasp) France wanting to follow its own foreign policy during the Gulf crisis and subsequent war. Two wrongs don't make a right, and this is indeed childish, but no less childish than restaurants serving members of the US government changing the name of "French fries" to "freedom fries." No point crying foul now, Americans, you did start it after all. Demanding that France follow you blindly into a war because of WW II is like saving a drowning man and then coming around 50 years later and demanding he drive the getaway car for you during a bank heist because "he owes me." Real life doesn't work that way.
