Has France ever been at war with the US ?

What I am saying is that any "significant" enemy such
as Russia, China, India, France, etc., perhaps Pakistan,
would have spies who would get either the plans or specs
or sample of military capable chips, which would then
be locally made.

No, but French-made weapons have done some significant damage to the US
and its allies...

French Indian War, Vichy, most of the cold war, and some pirates
back in the old days. They never forgave us for making up with
Britan.

The French-Indian wars were with Britain. There was no "US" at that time;
that was before the revolution.

The Vichy government was a puppet government run by Nazis, and was
officially neutral much of the time. One might make an analogy with the
local governments run by the 1/3 of the Ameraica colonists who were
loyalists, and the 1/3 neutral population.

"Some pirates?" Boy that is stretching. Specify; how were they different
from the British navy that stopped American vessels and impressed sailors
for British military service?

"Most of the cold war?" Even vaguer.

I think the Statue of Liberty is an indication of a large lack of enmity at
one time. In the late 80's, the only European nations with a net positive
view of the USA were 1) communist satellites and 2) France. Of particular
note is that Britain had a net negative view of the USA.

And after a day, I get confirmation. He spoketh:
"Sir, the answer is that vertical velocity does not apply. GPS main
function
is for horizontal velocity."

So I'm wondering if it is a common misconception that the velocity
restriction is 3D, or if the guy at Garmin was smoking crack...?


It has often been mentioned here that they only use the horizontal
component for distance and speed display etc, so going uphill or down dale
is still only measured as the distance or speed sideways. It makes sense
then that the velocity restriction would only be applied hoizontally as
well.
