And we now have to watch a Nobel peace prize wining American elected leader who apologizes to Europe and the Middle East that our country is “arrogant”!

Arrogant? Apologize?! Never! Remind those of our sacrifice and don’t confuse arrogance with leadership.

If I added correctly the count is 104,366 deaths.

HOW MANY FRENCH, DUTCH, ITALIANS, BELGIANS AND BRITS ARE BURIED ON OUR SOIL, DEFENDING US AGAINST OUR ENEMIES??

WE DON’T ASK FOR PRAISE … BUT WE HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO NEED TO APOLOGIZE!!

  1. I can certainly tell you about the French dying for this wonderful country.
    The independence was won at the battle of Yorktown on October 17th 1781.
    The revolutionary army was 18 000 strong: 9 000 Americans troupes under the command of Washington and 8 300 French troupes under the command of the French general Rochambeau, all of them volunteers.
    The British fleet was sailing from New York to bring reinforcement to General Cornwallis.
    The French fleet under the command of Admiral De Grace defeated the British fleet in the Chesapeake Bay and prevented the fresh British troupes from rescuing Cornwallis.
    Americans and French fought fiercely like brothers, they won the battle.
    After the battle more French troupes laid dead than Americans. I don’t think anyone has the exact count.
    Who in this great country remembers that? Who remembers the French volunteers with Lafayette had been fighting alongside their American friends since 1777.
    Who remembers that in 1778 the American Revolution was in a desperate situation, running out of money and ammunition? The French refinanced and resupplied the Revolution. The Americans offered to repay or to grant trade privileges, the French declined, they were fighting in the name of Liberty.
    And they reminded their Americans friends of their commitment to Liberty by giving them as a present the Statue of Liberty that has since become the very symbol of this magnificent country.

  2. Excellent point, Pierre. Thank you for this reminder of the great men who fought and died for our country during the great days of its birth!

  3. From what I understand, that was a France prior to the French Revolution. It was a France lead by a monarch who was more interested in giving England a black eye than simply to support our revolution. In fact, it actually backfired on the French monarchy because the American Revolution inspired the French Revolution.

    • True, but nonetheless, they did give their lives to help our country be what it is today! Mothers still lost husbands, children lost fathers, parents lost sons; a sacrifice was made on behalf of the French for which we should always be thankful.

  8. Apologize to no one.
    Remind those of our sacrifice and don’t
    confuse arrogance with leadership.
    The count is 104,366
    dead, brave Americans.

    And we have to watch an
    American elected leader who
    apologizes to Europe and the
    Middle East that our country is “arrogant”!
    HOW MANY FRENCH, DUTCH, ITALIANS,
    BELGIANS AND BRITS ARE BURIED ON
    OUR SOIL… AFTER DEFENDING US
    AGAINST OUR ENEMIES?
    WE DON’T ASK FOR PRAISE…
    BUT WE HAVE ABSOULUTELY NO NEED TO APOLOGIZE!
    Americans, forward it!
    Non-patriotic, delete it!
    Most of the protected don’t understand it.
    DO THINK ABOUT THIS.
    THANK YOU.
