At least the French showed them !
Yes, the French surely did show them...they showed that countries such as NZ have no 'friends' or 'allies' and it is pointless trying to curry favour with the big boys of the world..

The Poms could not bring themselves to condemn the sinking of a UK registered ship by the Froggies, our Skippy Bros helped the culprits to escape justice and the Yanks would have come out in support of the Froggies if they had thought of it. The ANZUS treaty was shown to be worth nothing to NZ but being the sort of people we are we continue to hold up our end of the treaty every minute of every day.
