Why I Don’t Like Frogs

They sank the Rainbow Warrior in Auckland harbour. Then lied about it.

They promised to hold the perps, Mafar and Prier, for ten years. They lied about it.

They sold Exocet missiles to Argentina but gave the missile neutering codes to Britain. And lied about it.

They conned Australia into an outrageous contract for overpriced, obsolete, late delivered submarines. And lied to get it.

France to build Australia a new fleet of submarines | News | DW | 26.04.2016

When Australia told them to ‘Va te faire foutre’ they withdrew their ambassadors from Australia and the US.

And they think they can cook.

  1. Labor Senator Conroy:-

    “Malcolm Turnbull and Christopher Pyne wanted to announce that they had a deal to build a submarine in South Australia…….

    …….And the truth was, on the day the deal was announced, the French president welcomed it and announced 4,000 new jobs in Cherbourg.

    • I hope they are gone for a long time. Turnbull should have gone with them.

    • Jeez,…. did President Trump send a mean Tweet to the French President or do something else stupid to antagonise a NATO ally to the extent that they’d withdraw an ambassador. The removal of a NATO ally’s ambassador is unprecedented in the history of the alliance.

      Oh well. Screw Europe eh? This is the Pacific century.

      God, I can’t wait until the adults are back in charge in the USA. People with decades of experience in foreign policy. The sort who are recommended by all the right people there and elsewhere around the world.

      “[Trump] has seriously weakened the western alliance and it will take time to repair… [he] has been bad for the Western Alliance nations. He has fundamentally weakened the Alliances. Biden will get them working again.”

      MUAHAHAHAHAAHA. Credentialed experts eh?

    • Andrei does that mean the Aussies wont be drinking French Champagne?

      Not a smart move by the French, their grape crop has been decimated last Spring, they may well have to import Aussie Reds to keep the peasonts from drinking cake!

  4. The fact that France capitulated in four weeks after the real fighting started in WW2 should have given the Aussies a clue.

    Secondly no one would call them a submarine power. I cant even recall in WW2 a mention of French submarines in any of the books I read.

    Mind you we cant point the bone can we….look at all the real dumb purchases we have made over the years..
    Rifles
    Tanks
    Armoured personal carriers
    Sir Charles Upham ship, if you can call it a ship, more a spansish orange carrier

    Like the French the Spanish must have seen us coming.

    On Wayne’s watch he did nothing so cant pin anything on him, oh except for doing nothing
