Freedom fries is a political euphemism for french fries. The term came to prominence in 2003 when the then Republican Chairman of the Committee on House Administration, Bob Ney, renamed the menu item in three Congressional cafeterias in response to France's opposition to the proposed invasion of Iraq.


Chirac's Address to the Congress of the United States of America, hissed, booed and called a liar by Republicans...

Condensed Trip down memory lane for the lazy.

There's terrorists and terrorists Saudi Arabia doesn't like.

Qatar's been backing the latter, I'm guessing.

Top notch campaign you ran there, British Conservatives. You may end up with a minority government while running against CORBYN. I guess that is what happens when you call an election and then immediately proceed to punch yourselves in the face over and over again.

If you call throwing water filled condoms at effigies "liberalism" then I can't help you. That's just a buncha edgelord antifa style shit right there.

Also unless the Conservatives pick up enough seats for an outright majority or one where they can throw their Northern Irish friends in to put them over the top, I'd say the UK is pretty much fucked. People think Trump is bad, but just wait and see what Corbyn has in store for everyone if elected......
