An unofficial mini war with France.
The result of the epic fail from France's negotiation with the US, was an unofficial war between the US and France for two years. France inflicted considerable damages on American shipping, seizing 316 ships. The US had nothing to fight them with.
Important because it was the birth of a required coastal defense and navy, the US Navy to protect US ships. This led to the congress authorizing the purchase of 12 vessels; each with 22 cannons. Dude, this is 😎
