I’ll just point out that the revolutionaries who took over France in the aftermath of the storming of the Bastille executed everybody who helped us win our independence from Britain. So I’m not sure we should be thanking the current Frenchies for this on Bastille Day, heh!

Yes, but they replaced by another group that executed them, and so on, and so forth.

If the French can be polite to the Shrubbery of the 60th anniversary of D-Day, I can be polite on their national day.
