Reader comment on item: France and Algeria: A History of Decolonization and Transformation

Submitted by c.r.raymond (United States), Jan 21, 2010 at 22:19

in light of france's recent attitudes towards america considering haiti where are french peoples at this moment of time. the french just want to cry and whine and place blame as usual. they did not cry so hard during wwii or wwi when we came to the rescue several times over.we here in america almost feel your sensitive anguish and pain but we have better things to worry about like how to distribute water and food to one of your former colonies, oops dont let me forget about algeria circa 1950s .or vietnam where the french govt. took everything they could for 100yrs then left like cowards like we always knew they were.
