    The article says nothing about what they are going to do to help. They state their "readiness" to help. They are standing by the victims. What does that mean?

    Sounds like rhetoric to me.

    They are waiting to be told how they can help. Sounds like wisdom to me.

    Well, in the hope that some might speak French, below is the detail of what France is doing re: Katrina

    "PARIS (Reuters) - L'aide humanitaire française est en route pour les Etats-Unis, après le passage de l'ouragan Katrina, annoncent à Paris les ministères des Affaires étrangères et de la Défense.

    Un avion de transport Beluga a décollé de Toulouse avec 12,7 tonnes de matériel de la protection civile. Après une escale au Royaume-Uni pour charger du fret alimentaire, il se posera à Mobile (Alabama), a précisé dans un communiqué le ministre des Affaires étrangères, Philippe Douste-Blazy.

    Par ailleurs, deux avions Casa devaient quitter dans l'après-midi la Martinique à destination de la base de Little Rock (Arkansas).

    "Pour venir en aide aux populations sinistrées de la Louisiane, les armées françaises mettent en oeuvre deux avions militaires de type Casa, transportant une équipe d'évaluation de la sécurité civile, des tentes, des bâches et des rations alimentaires", a déclaré le ministère de la Défense dans un communiqué.

    Au total, 950 Français sont immatriculés auprès des services consulaires de Louisiane et environ 200 en Alabama et dans le Mississippi.

    "Vingt-cinq personnes ont été retrouvées ou assistées directement" par le ministère et 150 environ ont été contactées soit par téléphone, soit par internet, par les services diplomatiques ou par leur famille, a poursuivi Philippe Douste-Blazy dans son communiqué.

    "Je vous rappelle enfin qu'à l'heure actuelle nous n'avons connaissance d'aucune victime française", a-t-il ajouté.

    Deux missions françaises sont actuellement sur place. La première "rayonne à partir d'Atlanta et se trouve dans la zone sinistrée (Biloxi, Gulf Port, Mobile)", a précisé le ministre. "Elle se rend de refuge en refuge pour localiser nos ressortissants."

    "La deuxième mission est basée à La Nouvelle-Orléans et cherche à entrer en contact avec nos ressortissants qui pourraient encore s'y trouver."

    Au Texas, la France a également "déployé depuis Houston des équipes à San Antonio (six personnes) et à Dallas (six personnes) chargées de localiser d'éventuels ressortissants français dans les lieux de regroupement.

    Elle a quatre médecins sur place, à Houston et à La Nouvelle-Orléans."

    Taking a stab at part of it..

    Humanitarian Aid in France is headed to the US after Hurrican Katrina, announces the Paris Minister of Affairs and Defense (and something else I can't translate)

    an airplane left with materials.

    Basically, France is coming to help.

    Thank you Jean Claude.

    And all this from a country is constantly ridiculed by my countrymen.

    Never said I hated the French. Nor do I ridicule them. I just keep in mind the French will be French. Her current government is following in the steps and legacy of M. le General DeGaulle.

    And by the by, the French will be welcomed with open arms by the Francophone Cajuns.

    Les chiens aboie... la caravane pass.

    I though I found a christian forum but nothing in here is worthy of Christ. I found nothing but insults, arguements, ill will and in general mean spirited comments. I am sorry for this sade state of affaire. Au revoir C4K... you are a good man.

    Agreed. I remember it was the French who gave us the Statue of Liberty. It was the French who sent troops and money during our struggle for independence at the beginning of our country.

    I offer apologies to you Jean Claude. We all claim to be Brothers and Sisters in Christ, no matter what our nationality. But sometimes there is an ill-mannered sibling among us.

    Info on the Statue of Liberty

    "One of the many proofs of Freemasonry's cult of liberty, and furthermore of its deep influence upon our culture and mentality, is the Statue of Liberty. This colossus in New York's harbor was conceived by Freemasons, financed by Freemasons, built by Freemasons, and installed by Freemasons in a Freemasonic ceremony."

    Dittos to Mike McK on the &lt;inflammatory remark deleted - LE&gt; but I won't withhold comment. In fact, I will be graciously grateful for their help. I truly am touched.

    It will do little to change my opinion of them, but it is very nice of them.

    But, C4K------Francophobe?. There are several jokes I'm tempted to respond with but am trying (very, very hard) to be magnanimous (sp?) here.

    LE,

    Inflammatory? [​IMG] I defer to your authority and judgement, however.
