    Think about it....

    An officer in the U.S. Naval reserve was attending a conference that
    included admirals from both the U.S. Navy and the French Navy.

    At a cocktail reception, he found himself in a small group that included
    personnel from both navies. The French admiral started complaining that
    whereas Europeans learned many languages, Americans learned only English. He
    then asked: \"Why is it that we have to speak English in these conferences
    rather than you speak French?

    \"Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied: \"Maybe it\'s because the
    Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you would not have to
    speak German.\" The group became silent.
