Danish pizzeria bans French and Germans
A Danish pizzeria has banned French and Germans from dining there because of their country's stance on a war with Iraq.
Aage Bjerre, who owns Aage's Pizza on the island of Fanoe, said he's tired of French and German attitudes toward the United States.
He's put two homemade drawings on the shop door, one a silhouette of a man coloured red, yellow and black for Germany and another in the red, white and blue for France.
Both silhouettes have a bar across them.
He says Germans will be allowed in if their country joins a war on Iraq, but the French will have to endure a lifetime ban.
Aage said: 'Hadn't the United States helped Europe in defeating Germany, there would have been photos of Adolf Hitler hanging on the walls around here.'
The ban has yet to affect his business because the tourist season only starts after Easter and peaks during the summer. 'I do what my conscience tells me to do,' he said.
He added: 'Frenchmen have a lifetime ban here. Their attitude toward the United States will never change.'

I wonder if the and when the war starts and allah willing we kill Saddam fast and you see Iraqis dancing in the streets and soldiers giving up for a sandwich, what will France, Germany and the left in this country say?
I bet they will still have a negative attitude and claim that it is still wrong and we will face retribution because of it

I don't know what it will take for some to come around. Shroeder won by a fairly narrow lead over Stoiber in Germany so just a few percentage point change in German public opinion could change the balance there. Stoiber should have asked for the votes to be recounted -- over and over again, throw out any swinging chads for Schroeder.
