No, what I was saying is that Joan of Arc showed some balls when none of the French leadership would.



my mistake - it wasn't clear in your post.

On the night of 10th July 1985 Rainbow Warrior had already been in Auckland Harbour for three days, preparing for a protest voyage to the French nuclear test site at Moruroa Atoll.

Only days later French Prime Minister Fabius admitted that their Secret service agents had bombed the Rainbow Warrior under “orders from above”. On 4th November 1985 Mafart and Prieur pleaded guilty to manslaughter and willful damage in Auckland’s High Court, after being charged with the greater crimes of Murder and Arson.

It deserves to be remembered, as does the memory of Fernando Pereira - the Portugese photographer who died in what then-Prime Minister of New Zealand David Lange called “a sordid act of international state-backed terrorism”.

What that quote fails to mention is that was probably the first time the French had shown any balls since Joan of Arc.


Didn't the French show balls under Napoleon? But then again, Nappie was a Corsican and not a real Frenchman. :wink:

What balls, they sunk a private non-military vessel tied to a public wharf at nigth, and even then they still had to sneak up on it under warter!

And the same people who where in power in france then are still running things now.

I'm black with some Native American ancestory on both sides of the family, hence, having physical features that make me look like a black Pocahontas. The fact I seem to be the only black female in this forum isn't surprising since asperger's rarely occurs in females....or African-Americans. Don't I feel special. 8)

I just learned that the Martello towers all around the coast of the UK were as much to do with harassing the shipping of those colonial chappies as it was a defense against the French. Still, at least James Joyce found a good use for one.

I met a black girl with AS, about 10 or 11, a year ago. She was in my mom's class.

I've never heard of a living person that is black and part indian. The way I was raised, that was used exclusively as a joke. :?
