    So I have a question. Since Vivendi is a French company is US bound to see any less attendance based on this?

    Just a thought.....with the whole French boycotting the war thing.

    Any thoughts?

    perhabs people should start to boykott disney as they own a park in France.....

    god so stupid do you think the french government changes his mind just because you start boykotting US nope ...the only ones who are affected are the people who work their and as you might recall they are all americans....get my point

    and furthermore other countries have the right to question americas decisions like it or not......not everybody who disagrees with your president is against americe in fact most europeans hate your president but like the us and their people.....

    Most people that work at DLP are not Americans

    Forgive us if we don't make that distinction so clearly. Most Americans decidedly do not hate their President, so comparing him to Hitler might rub us the wrong way.......

    excuse me but believe it or not europe doesn't care what the US think.....

    and furthermore if you start boykotting European Companies such as usf (which in my opinion is American even if the main share holder is french ) we will start boykotting american companies coca cola, mcdonalds and so on ...

    know satisfied believe me we are not scared of you...

    I've never really questioned france's motives or decisions. I have always been quite confident the term "selfserving" and all of it's derivitives pretty much answers all my questions.

    who do you think you are to impose consequences on an european country if you impose consequences on France you impose it on the whole European Union and believe me we can hurt America as much as you can hurt us......

    And what do you think you will gain by threatening us..the Us economy is pretty much run down at the moment and i think you can need all the business you can get at the moment even that of us europeans

    Now he speaks for all of Europe.

    Sad to see that France has become the mouthpiece for the whole EU. The EU is changing everyday. You might want to look at why the French did not want us going into Iraq and then step back and look at it objectively. If you chose France as your moral and economic leader then you will have more problems then the US can ever deal to you.

    Don't be so naive to think that War is the only way to get a government out of power.

    I heard a great quote the other day...."not have the French on your side in battle is like not having a piano on a bear hunt."

    Oooohhhhh..................................a true international incident on the Rumors Board :crazy:.

    As Scoop said.........................why don't you all take a deep breath and a step back. I would imagine that if you all want to debate international politics and foreign policy this thread will quickly be kicked to the debate board. I'd be more than happy to follow you there to explain how all EU nations are much more dependent upon the US than we are on them ;) but, to stay on topic.....................................

    Our lederhosen wearing (I know - they are German, but you would be too if the US didn't get involved in certain conflicts ;)), EU flag waving friend is correct - any type of boycott or action against Vivendi owned properties like Universal will hurt Americans much more than the French.

    Now can't we all get along?
