U.S. Retaliatory Raid on Libya

April 20, 1986

Lafayette, where have you gone? Once again the French have turned their backs on America, perfectly willing to reap a profit from the tragedy of others.

For years they looked the other way, allowing terrorism to flourish as long as French citizens were not their targets, and as American businesses are driven from the Middle East, French businesses move in to take their place! And we call these people allies? People who wouldn't even grant our armed forces air space? Who now condemn us for fighting back against the terrorists they tolerated for so long?

I say to hell with the French! Let us boycott their products! Boycott their tourism! Boycott their services! Let us tell these fair-weather friends that America has already given enough lives during this century and that, from now on, we will give less to those who ungratefully give nothing back.
