Dear Dad,

A funny thing happened to me yesterday at Camp Bendsteel Bosnia):
A French army officer waked up to me in the PX, and told me he
thought we (Americans) were a bunch of cowboys and were going to
provoke a war in Iraq. He said if such a thinkg happens, we
wouldn't be able to count on the support of France.

I told him that it didn't suprise me. Since we had come to
France's rescue in World War 1, World War 2, Vietnam, and the
Cold War, their ingratitude and jealousy was due to surface
again, at some point in the near future anyway...

I also told him that is why Frnce is a third-rate military
power with a Socialist economy and a bunch of faggots for
soldiers. I additionally told him that America, being a nation
of deeds and action, not words, would do whatever it had to do,
and France's support, if it ever came, was only for show anyway.
Just like in all NATO exercises, the US would shoulder 85% of
the burden, and provide 85% of the support, as evidenced by the
fact that this French officer was shopping in the American PX,
and not the other way around.

He began to get beligerent at that point, and I told him if
he would like to, I would meet him outside in front of the
Burger King and whip his ass in front of the entire Multi-National
Brigade East, thus demonstrating that even the smallest American
had more fight in him than the average Frenchman.

He called me a barbarian cowboy and walked away in a huff.
With friends like these, who needs enemies?


Dad, tell mom I love her,
Your loving daughter

Lt. Col. Mary beth Johnson, USMC
