PARIS, France (Reuters) -- U.S. citizens have turned on French fries and toast to vent their frustration at France's anti-war stance on Iraq. Now the French have joined in the food war -- with pretzels.

A French Web site is urging people to send pretzels to U.S. President, who fainted and fell off a sofa in January 2002 after gagging on the salty snack.

The Web site,, says the pretzels will be stored at a secret location before being sent to the White House in a historic mass action.

The retaliation follows moves by some in the United States to change the names of French fries and French toast to Freedom fries and Freedom toast.

The pretzels are on sale for seven euros ($7.56) each, with one euro going to a children's charity. So far some 250 euros have been raised for the charity.

"We think that to oppose war is not to be against the American people, but simply against the politics of the Bush administration," the Web site says.

After the fainting incident, Bush lamented not heeding his mother's advice to chew pretzels before swallowing and his wife Laura joked he was now "practicing safe snacks."

if "Washington is a Hollywood for ugly people," then, considering the remarks coming out of Tinseltown about Iraq, "Hollywood is a Washington for the simpleminded."

Send the Pretzel trucks to my house! mmmmmmm...Pretzels.
While I don't agree with France, I think it is really stupid(though funny) to change the names of food. I wish all the thoughts wasted on this could have been put to better use(Damn don't make laws that help us, no change the name of F'n Fries).

You do make a few good points. The oil one in particular. Not only is that good for the world, it is good for Iraq. Money means stability - and that is something they need in abundance. People are less willing to rabble rouse when their bellies are full....
