France

Going to war without France is like going deer hunting without an accordion.  You just leave a lot of useless, noisy baggage behind.   – Jed Babbin

Never go to France – unless you know the lingo, if you do like me, you will repent by jingo.
Thomas Hood

A lot of folks are still demanding more evidence before they actually consider Iraq a threat. For example, France wants more evidence. And you know I’m thinking, the last time France wanted more evidence they rolled right through Paris with the German flag.
David Letterman

France can never accept that it is no longer a dominating power in the world of culture. This is true both of the French right and the French left. They keep thinking that Americans are primitive cowboys or farmers who do not understand anything.
Adam Michnik
In the current conflict, the French media is pro-Arab for two reasons: The large Arab and Islamic presence in France combined with the weight of the billion Muslims in the world, and the fact that Sharon is a rightist.
Jean-Marie Le Pen
Punish France, ignore Germany, and forgive Russia.
Condoleezza Rice

You’re thinking of Eurpoe as Germany and France. I don’t. I think that’s old Europe.
Donald Rumsfeld

Have we so soon forgotten those four years of terrible carnage, the greatest war of all time; forgotten the millions of men who gave their lives, who made the supreme sacrifice and who today, beneath the soil of France and Belgium, sleep the eternal sleep?
Frank B. Kellogg

If George W. Bush is elected president, I’m leaving for France.
Robert Altman

There’s a lot of things I like about France that you could never pull off in this country.
Eleanor Clift

France cannot be France without greatness.
Charles de Gaulle

When I want to know what France thinks, I ask myself.
Charles de Gaulle

Having viewed Europe as an extension and projection of itself, France now finds Europe developing a mind and identity of its own which embraces France but is not controlled by France.
Peter Mandelson
Few governments in the world, for example, praise human rights more ardently than does the government of France, and few have a worse record of supporting tyrants and killers.
Richard Perle
The Marshall Plan .. the Truman Policy .. all pumped billions upon billions of dollars into discouraged countries. Now, newspapers in those countries are writing about the decadent war-mongering Americans.
Gordon Sinclair
We always have been, we are, and I hope that we always shall be detested in France.  – Duke of Wellington

“France has neither winter nor summer nor morals. Apart from these drawbacks it is a fine country. France has usually been governed by prostitutes.” —Mark Twain“I would rather have a German division in front of me than a French one behind me.” —General George S. Patton
