France didn't work as an answer. And could the question be more antagonistic against them?

Sorry. Will get that fixed. And yes it could. I tried to keep it as moderately aggressive as possible.

France still not accepted, and I agree with pctjunkie. This is a quiz site, not a place for airing political views.

Well, we did free them and they refused to help us depose another dictator. Also, this is not even close to being a political quiz. There are plenty of political quizzes on this site.

If we're going with the "we liberated them in WWII" argument (which, I agree, yes we did) then let's not forget that without the help of the French in the Revolutionary War there would be no USA in the first place.

We didn't forget about it. But we were supposed to be a team. We help them, they help us. We tried to help them in Vietnam and ended up fighting a war on their behalf. Then we go to invade Iraq and they can't even give us a few hundred soldiers? That's why I say they sold out.

The French and Americans have a very long history of being very important friends and allies. I like to think that was part of why they opposed the invasion of Iraq. It take a true friend to point out when you are wrong.

You know, the "Revolutionary War" or the "War of Independence" are just as valid as the one answer you chose to accept. And I totally agree with "Pctjunkie", without France (which by the way went bankrupt doing so, leading to their own revolution in 1789) assisting us, we might still be under English rule. Isn't it ironic that the UK is now our closest ally while France is constantly under fire when they don't agree with us in everything? (e.g., "Freedom Fries") What ingratitude!
