Here's a good email I got...

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.

He 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.'

You could have heard a pin drop.



Then 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?'



You could have heard a pin drop.


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 hesitating, the American Admiral replied, 'Maybe it's because
the Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't
have to speak German.'



You could have heard a pin drop.


AND THIS STORY FITS RIGHT IN WITH THE ABOVE...


A group of Americans, retired teachers, recently went to France on a
tour. 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 carry on. '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 your 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
'44 , I couldn't find a Frenchman to show it to.'



You could have heard a pin drop.
