Were robbin it: Armed thieves at a McDonald's are captured by 11 French Special Forces soldiers who were in the restaurant Robbers raid McDonald's in Ecole-Valentin, near Besancon, eastern France But they found 11 elite special forces soldiers who shot and overpowered them .... But the soldiers, who had their weapons with them but out of sight, played it cool until they had the chance to strike and could minimise the danger to other customers.

Bwahahahahah, giggle snort.
How does one say “morons” in French?
Nowhere in the article does it mention surrender.
What’s up with that?
I just love a story with a happy ending.
It just brings tears to my eyes.
Although the French have lost plenty, they always fought valiantly. Even when the French got crunched at the beginning of WW2, the Germans sustained over a hundred thousand casualties taking France.
I will not take that bet.
The phrasing is so sweet and melodious, I had to repost it.
Now be nice!
They have guns!
Close quarters and they gut shot the second one....must have been something he said to them, or payback for Paris in a manner fellow troops would understand.
Yep. The failure of French leadership, not of the French soldier, is what must be considered. To be especially sarcastic: had the building of Paris not been threatened I suspect that the French leadership would have happily fought to the last drop of the French soldier’s blood.
I was watching a program on TV about the early days of WWII.
I was surprised (maybe shocked is a better word) to learn that in one huge tank battle, the Germans lost 156 tanks and the French, around 100. It sounds like the French were capable but poorly led.
Dunkirk, the British went home, where did the french go?
Just ‘morons’ will do fine, but you could also try
‘idiot · imbecile · cretin
1939 French halt successful campaign against Germans, retreat (Saar offensive)
1940 Germans defeat French
1940 French defeat French (Battle of Dakar)
1941 British defeat French (Battle of Damascus)
1942 Americans defeat French (Operation Torch)
The French did perform well against the Italians in the Battle of the Alps in 1940.
