Very interesting read

After the liberation De Gaulle's government held on to internees from many countries in officially closed centres to hide collaboration

The government of Charles de Gaulle held hundreds of foreigners, including at least three Britons, in an internment camp near Toulouse for up to four years after the second world war, according to secret documents.
The papers, part of a cache of 12,000 photocopied illegally by an Austrian-born Jew, reveal the extent to which French officials collaborated with their fleeing Nazi occupiers even as their country was being liberated. They also show that, when the war was over, France went to extraordinary lengths to hide as much evidence of that collaboration as possible.

Seems like the French have done alot of sneaky underhanded stuff throughout the years in the 20th century. Remember, we were opposed by the Vichy French in the invasion of North Africa in 1942. They fired on our troops in Casalblanca. Should have shot them all instead of rearming them as our "allies".

We should have used them for cannon fodder in Normandy & let them liberate their own country. They got to drive ahead of our troops and "liberate" Paris, already an open city abandoned by the Germans.

Anybody know why the streets in Paris are tree lined? Because the Germans like to march in the shade.

The French seem to forget all we have done to bail out their backstabbing @$$'s.
Next time they oppose us in the UN we should demand they do it in German.(what they would be speaking w/o us)
