Subject: A PIN DROP

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  
DE Gaulle decided to pull out of NATO.  DE Gaulle said he wanted all U.S.    
Military out of France as soon as possible.
    
Rusk responded,
“Does that include those who are buried here?”
    
DE Gaulle  Did not respond.

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. 
  
Powell 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.”

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  
Intend 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?”

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 hesitation,

The American Admiral replied, “Maybe it’s because the  
Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you wouldn’t  
Have to speak German.”

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 carryon.
  
“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 their 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 Frenchman  
To show a passport to.”
