THE "ALLIES":

Justice demanded for WWII death trains (STEVE RENNIE, 8/30/06, Toronto Star)

A Thornhill family is one of more than a dozen from Canada planning to take France and its national railway company to court for helping the Nazis ship their relatives to death camps.

Paris-based lawyer Avi Bitton told the Star in a telephone interview yesterday that "about 15 Canadian families" will join between 250 and 300 other families from France, Belgium, Israel and the United States in seeking compensation from the French government and its rail company, Société Nationale des Chemins de fer Français, for their part in the World War II deportations.

Mike, I haven't commented on this because I couldn't come up with a sufficiently nuanced reply.

You just did. Bingo. Thanks.

erp (and Mike):

Exactly. I couldn't think of a sufficiently clever remark about the French, or about trains, so I just let it go.
