So the French still aren't on board with us kicking Iraq's ass. Oh boo hoo. Let's take a look at the mighty French military prowess, shall we?

Gallic Wars - Lost. In a war whose ending foreshadows the next 2000 years of French history, France is conquered by of all things, an Italian.

Hundred Years War - Mostly lost, saved at last by female schizophrenic who inadvertently creates The First Rule of French Warfare: "France's armies are victorious only when not led by a Frenchman."

Italian Wars - Lost. France becomes the first and only country to ever lose two wars when fighting Italians. Wars of Religion - France goes 0-5-4 against the Huguenots.

Thirty Years War - France is technically not a participant, but manages to get invaded anyway. Claims a tie on the basis that eventually the other participants started ignoring her.

War of Devolution - Tied. Frenchmen take to wearing red flowerpots as chapeaux.

The Dutch War - Tied

War of the Augsburg League/King William's War/French and Indian War Lost, but claimed as a tie. Three ties in a row induces deluded Frogophiles the world over to label the period as the height of French military power.

War of the Spanish Succession - Lost. The War also gave the French their first taste of a Marlboro, which they have loved every since.

American Revolution - In a move that will become quite familiar to future Americans, France claims a win even though the English colonists saw far more action. This is later known as "de Gaulle Syndrome", and leads to the Second Rule of French Warfare: "France only wins when America does most of the fighting."

French Revolution - Won, primarily due the fact that the opponent was also French.

The Napoleonic Wars - Lost. Temporary victories (remember the First Rule!) due to leadership of a Corsican, who ended up being no match for a British footwear designer.

The Franco-Prussian War - Lost. Germany first plays the role of drunk Frat boy to France's ugly girl home alone on a Saturday night.

World War I - Tied and pissing their pants on the way to losing, France is saved by the United States. Thousands of French women find out what it's like to not only sleep with a winner, but one who doesn't call her "Fraulein." Sadly, widespread use of condoms by American forces forestalls any improvement in the French bloodline.

World War II - Lost. Conquered French liberated by the United States and Britain just as they finish learning the Horst Wessel Song.

War in Indochina - Lost. French forces plead sickness, take to bed with the Dien Bien Flu.

Algerian Rebellion - Lost. Loss marks the first defeat of a western army by a Non-Turkic Muslim force since the Crusades, and produces the First Rule of Muslim Warfare: "We can always beat the French." This rule is identical to the First Rules of the Italians, Russians, Germans, English, Dutch, Spanish, Vietnamese and Esquimaux.

War on Terrorism - France, keeping in mind its recent history, surrenders to Germans and Muslims just to be safe. Attempts to surrender to Vietnamese ambassador fail after he takes refuge in a McDonald's.

The question for any country silly enough to count on the French should not be "Can we count on the French?", but rather "How long until France surrenders?"

Galaxy 5, aren't you ashamed to show us how enormous is your ignorance?
I cannot find enough harsh words to qualify such a load of crap.

Hundred Years War - Mostly lost

Mostly lost? After Joan of Arc took Orleans, Charles VII finished the work and, by 1453, the english had lost all their french territories, except the town of Calais.

Thirty Years War - France is technically not a participant, but manages to get invaded anyway. Claims a tie on the basis that eventually the other participants started ignoring her.

France was a participant in this war, ended by the Westphalie treaties and won by France and Sweden. During this war, France annexed Roussilon, Artois, Alsace and several key cities of Flandern, Hainault and Luxembourg.
This war marked the begining of the french domination of continental europe.

War of Devolution - Tied. Frenchmen take to wearing red flowerpots as chapeaux.

Louis XIV annexed Franche-Comté...

War of the Spanish Succession - Lost. The War also gave the French their first taste of a Marlboro, which they have loved every since.

France imposed Philippe V of Anjou (grandson of Louis XIV) as the king of Spain...

The Napoleonic Wars - Lost.

...After France submited all european ennemies during 20 years... (1795-1815).

World War I - Tied and pissing their pants on the way to losing, France is saved by the United States.

What a caricature! France resisted the germans during 3 years, with an inferior army, before the americans came in France. 1 500 000 french gave their life to save the country.
If you think america won WWI for France, then go back to school.

732: Charles Martel beats the Arab army at Poitiers.

From 778 to his death: Charlemagne invades Belgium, Holland, a part of Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Northern Italy.

1066: Guillaume le Conquérant, duke of Normandy, wins at Hastings, in England, and becomes the King of England.

Napoléon Bonaparte: yeah he's from Corsica, but when ha was born Corsica was already a French island so Bonaparte was a french man.

From 1850: France helps Italy to be independant.

WWI: 1 400 000 French persons died. Please, Galaxy5, don't insult those people by your stupid comments.

WWII: Don't forget that millions of French people fought and died during this war. Without the Resistance, the disembarking couldn't take place.

War in Indochina: yes, we've been kicked out of Indochina, just like the USA.

You know Galaxy5, France has a loong looooong history.

Galaxy5, to me you're nothing more than a narrow minded person who should come here in France to see that we're more than you see. But I don't know if you desserve to come in France (I'm not arrogant saying that but someone who has such thoughts about a country and it's ppl shouldn't even be allowed to get into this country).

What's the goal of such a post? Insult the french? To demonstrate we are cowards, under-men, evil?

In fact, Galaxy's post looks like a nazi statement saying the jews are under men, backed by wrong historical facts.

He is doing the same with the french.

First I must say one thing:

I am by no means pro-French.

I live in country that lost too much, because of French invasions in the 19th century, and that paid dearly for standing with Britain against France during those days.

But this initial post is really stupid.
It denies the great influence of France and French culture in the world. We may criticize them, for being self-centered chauvinistic and the likes, but maybe they have reasons to be like that.

Just some information that seems to be missing here:

- In World War One, without the extreme efforts of France, the help of the USA, (which came only in the last year of the war, when the blockade was making things really bad for the central powers) would have been irrelevant.

- In World War Two, bad tactics, resulted in the fall of France. Actually, there was an armistice, because Germans didn't want to really subdue France completely. France still had North African colonies, and the French fleet, would still be fighting.

As Mr. Winston Churchill wrote in His memories, Britain would have suffered from the same destiny, and would also have surrendered if they had to face the German army in British soil.

The greatest military asset of Britain in WW2 was the English channel and the Royal Navy's capacity to defend it.

The initial post, comes obviously from a member of the very significant number of Americans that just have no idea about the world they live in, and that have a completely distorted vision of the world. Fortunately there are many Americans that still have brains.

France is not supporting this war because they think that it could be avoided, not because their army is not capable. It's not a competition here, can you understand that? What a stupid post anyway  Big thumbs up

I have found that the worst sin on this forum-THE ABSOLUTE WORST, is to make fun of France. It's ok to make fun of the U.S., I've noticed, but make fun of France, and war is almost declared on here by certain voices. I get reamed for my defense of the U.S., but God help you if you cross the line and go after France.

Let France believe what France wants to believe in the current situation. Their assistance would be welcome, but it is not necessary.

Galaxy 5,
The original submission was quite funny, but I hope the French do not
take it to seriously. Remember history is normally written by the victors who slant things their way. This modern enmity between the USA and France is quite a modern thing, originating from Charles De Gaulle, before that they were great friends.
In fact the American war of independence might not have been successful with out French assistance. Their Fleet beat the British relief Fleet going to Yorktown, and in fact at Yorktown there was more French soldiers fighting the British than there was Americans. Mind you there was on the British side more Germans than British, So I always say that your French beat our Germans .
As an American I thought you might have skipped Indo China as I seem to remember that You Americans had a slight problem there too. Before you and the French get carried away with who won the First WW remember that the UK and her empire sent one or two soldiers there too.
Being British you might not think that I would support the French, but I quite admire their their recent governments [last 40 years ] as they do what is good for France and to hell with everybody else, I just wish the British government did the same for the UK.

You know, I'd really like this stupid France vs USA "war" to stop.
France and the USA don't share the same opinion about a war in Iraq. OK?
American people want a war, that's understandable, but French (and German and Belgian people) think that we can avoid a war.
Does that mean that France and the USA are ennemies ?
Of course no !
Does that mean that France is afraid of a war ?
Of course no !

Galaxy5, come in France, ask to any teenager, any person: "what would be your favourite destination?", a huge majority would answer "the USA".
In my class many people think I'm lucky because I've already been to America. Lots of French people would love to go in America, but the don't want a war in Iraq, that's all.
French people are not anti-american. Don't trust the TV, don't trust magasines like frontpagemag. We are NOT anti american ! But when I read so many comments like yours about my country, first I think "grrr...once again an american man insult me and my country". Then I realize that many American people in this forum like France and French people, and even if they don't care about, they don't insult us. On other forums I often talk to American ppl, and I have no problems with them, we're just happy together.
But please, don't break everything with your stupid posts about France. Lots of people love America, but if they read this they may think that all American ppl are anti American.
I am able to know that in America, just like in any other country, there are stupid people and very intelligent and nice people.
You know, like I said before, I have been to America. It was 10 years ago. I remember that the American people were cheerfull and very welcoming. I've been to Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. I've had so much fun...this was surely one of the best holidays I've ever spent. Luckily, my father speacks English very fluently.
I really had a great time. But I also remember that some people were arrogant and not that nice; but I don't care because I've been a great time and that the huge majority of people was nice and very welcoming. Today, the US is in my "top3" favourite destination.
Then, a few years ago, there was some American soldiers and aircrafts in France, at Istres. I don't know if they're still there. My father who was a doctor in the French army, went to Istres to meet them, he invited some of them at my home. They were very nice ! to thank us, they invited us to the air base and I've seen the aicrafts, etc... I had a great time.
So as I explained, I love the USA and I love many American people, and I'm not the only French person who thinks that way.
But in this forum I've read so many bad and stupid comments about my country and its people that I've been very hurt many times. And most of those comments come from American people.
What do you want me to think ?
On one side I've known very nice, welcoming and cheerfull, and open-minded American people, and on an other side I know American people who insult me all day long saying that French are betrayers, that we never fought, that we're nothing more than stupid frogs...
Those comments sadden me a lot, not just because they're about my country, but also become they often come from American people. But I've also seen many American people defending us when this kind of comments appear in this forum...
Galaxy5, if I could, I would invite you in France, because I want to show the world that we are not only stupid frogs. We may be arrogant, but we are also much more. Every people worth being known before being judged.
Today I have to say that I'm very worry about this permanent "France vs the US" war. I'd like this "war" to stop, but I can't stand reading bad comments about my country without reacting.
Please understand my point.
I'd like France and the US to be as friend as before.
But Friendship doesn't mean that we have to share the same opinion.

Manni, settle down a little, will you? I agree that this time, it was just a cheap shot on France. But having said that, what I said was true, whether you agree with it or not. All you have to do is look at what you, or Indianguy, or Ovelix, and a host of others are always writing on here about me and my nation, and you'll see that it's the favorite past-time on this forum. I don't say that as an American-I say that as objectively as I can. All you have to do is look at the number of threads on here that, in one way or another, end up as a lynching party against my nation, or our President, or our people. It is NOT an outrageous lie. It's a fact of life on A.net.

'...let's France believe what France wants to believe...'

Therefore they got my biggest respect, unlike others who sell their ass for a couple barrows of oil.


France and the U.S. are both looking out for what they perceive as their national interests. They have differeing opinions on what the course should be in Iraq. I have no problem with that. I do believe that France's huge investments in Iraq is one reason they're opposing an invasion, and, truthfully, I'd feel the same way in their shoes. The U.S. sees the situation differently. Neither one is any better, any worse than the other, in my opinion.

AOMlover, that was one of the better posts I've seen on here in a long, long while. I am one of those that have been guilty, as charged, with making fun of France. Some of it I think has been justified, and some of it, whether anyone believes me or not, is just good-natured ribbing.

There is a long, proud history between France and the U.S. One of the proudest symbols of freedom in the world, The Statue of Liberty, was a gift from France to the U.S. Who can forget the pictures on 9/11 of Lady Liberty in the foreground, with New York burning in the background. I think you're right. Conversely, one only needs to visit Normandy (which I hope to God I can do before my time here is over), and look at the American graves at Normandy to see that the U.S. has also given much to the liberty of France.

Americans need to remember that France has supported the U.S. over it's relatively short history, and, despite the current differences, there is more that unites France and the U.S. than divides us.

I think both sides can hold their opinions on the current issues without dipping into the gutter of attack on "my country is better than yours".

I think your points are justified. Nice job.

Thank you Alpha1  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
I've lived to years in Normandie, so I've often seen the beach where so many Americans lost their lives. This Summer I want back to Normandie, and I visited an American/English cemetery. It's hard o find the words to describe this place. There were American people. I don't know if they were families of soldiers, or just American people who were visiting France, but I really wanted to go and tell them "Thank you". I didn't, not because I finally didn't want, but because I didn't dare (I don't know if "dare" is the correct word, I used babelfish that translated "oser" into "dare").
And as you said, the Statue of Liberty is here to remind us that we're both united by Freedom.
Trust me, I'm really happy that you understood what I tried to say  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
