Thursday was National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day in the United States, but French ambassador to the U.S. Gérard Araud apparently wanted Americans to know that not everyone remembers Pearl Harbor Day the same way. In a quickly deleted tweet, Araud chided the United States for refusing to side with France and the U.K. in the 1930s.

Araud retweeted this tweet, which we’re guessing says what he meant to say in the first place.

Fair point. Still, that’s not quite how we remember Pearl Harbor here in the States.

Could the United States at least get a “thank you” for what it did in the 1940s?
