Gotta pull our troops back to nuke the place.
France will always be there when she needs us.
Yup they are struggling,....
Czech Republic to send troops to Africa anti-terror mission
The Czech government has approved a Defense Ministry plan to deploy up to 60 troops as part of France’s anti-terror mission in Africa
time for china to give it a whirl
Another excellent reason to leave.
I hope Trump accelerates the withdrawal to spite them.
France should draft their migrant men and send them back to contain the radicals.
There’s a new culinary fad sweeping through. It’s called fecalphagery.
Here’s a plate.
We begin bombing France in 5 minutes.
My God, they might have to send their own troops in.
France imports dangerous Muslims and then wants us to fight them in Africa? How does that make sense?
They dont have any rifles. They dropped theirs then sold them. Remember the saying taking a Frenchman to war is about as useful as taking a banjo deer hunting?
Hey France, how about you and Obama *not* overthrow the denuclearized dictator of Libya in your headlong charge into cranial-rectal inversion?
We like to laugh at the French. However they have the 2nd most experienced professional army in the world and have been involved in asymetric combat for many years. You mess with them at your peril.
They didn’t lose to the Germans because of cowardice. They inflicted massive casualties in many areas. They simply had the most incompetent Generals you could find.
Still its pretty fun to make jokes.
Reminds me of the only drive lever in a French tank, reverse.
They also have a tremendous nuclear arsenal with long range super sonic cruise missiles and fantastic SSBN’s. I wouldn’t mess with them IRL, but I do joke sometimes.
You know the French and Banjo’s, they most enjoy the love scene in Deliverance. Perhaps if we make the great movie, Macron County Line, we will win the Palm D’Orr at Cannes nez pas. Looks like a job for the EU army you are building.
They relied on the Maginot Line while the Germans introduced them to modern mechanized warfare.
“They didnt lose to the Germans because of cowardice. They inflicted massive casualties in many areas. They simply had the most incompetent Generals you could find.”
The French Army definitely had the incompetent generals but they hardly inflicted massive casualties on the Germans. In fact the French had 2 to 3 times as many killed as the Germans. This was an atrocious figure considering they were fighting on the defensive. Usually attackers suffer more casualties then defenders.
I think I exist because MY ancestors ran away from War.
The new film, “1917”, is instructive.
Damn right. Two generations of my family fought to free those cheese eating surrender monkeys. In 1918 and 1944 and damn near lost their lives doing it.
