Western European nation, with a rich culture and history. Member of NATO, the EU, and G8. Has a GDP/capita of about 30,000 euros. Famous for its wines, cheese, women, xenophobes, Eiffel Tower and Napoleon. Had tense relations with Germany and Britain in the past, and is presently despised by many Americans. Ironically, France provided major assistance for the USA during the Revolutionary War, and also gave them the Statue of Liberty, one of America's most well-known symbols.
Before pointing out that the French are cowards who surrender quickly, consider what France did during the Hundred Years War, the Napoleonic Wars, or WWI. Still, that DeGaulle guy was a douche.

1. A country in western Europe, leading the political opposition to psycho-Bush and his coalition of supporters who are hated by their people.
2. Subject of a mathematical equation that measures intelligence:
France > America.
3. See smart.

US Generals commanding the NATO forces in Afghanistan have said that the French troops under their command are some of the best soldiers they have ever seen.
France is an important ally of the US that is helping with the war on terror. They didn't support the war on Iraq because it had nothing to do with the war on terror.

A wonderful girl; playful at heart; loves to be affectionate and lives to be loved, although rarely appreciated until it is too late. Not very thick skinned; emotional and wears her heart on her sleeve. However, as hard as nails when this link is broken and once link is broken it is never recaptured. Easily hurt, often by others taking her for granted. A truly precious soul. Fun to be with; a hot lover who will keep her man happy and fired up when she is not with him. Frequently, she will be a stunner who turns heads but doesn't know the power she has. This one's a keeper!
Hey man, how was your weekend?
It was good but it would have been better if I'd seen Frances!
