As a language the French demand that French has priority to the point of stomping out of EU meetings where french is not considered the primary language. They try to protect the french language from contamination (ie Le Internet!) in the same way as they protect french farmers ... by setting fire to english words as they come across the channel. Sadly for the [[frogs]], learning french in the UK is in decline mainly cause todays yoof cant turn it into txt spek and French is to disgusting for an average Brit to stomach.

Losers, eh? Live in France

AKA "Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys"

Invented the Beret as we know it (See Royal Tank Regiment) but wear it pulled down on the wrong side. The Chasseurs Alpins wear an oversized beret which looks daft.

General Patton was quoted as saying... "I'd rather have a German Panzer Division in front of me than a French Division behind me", which just about says what he thought of the French military capability and their trustworthiness.

General Norman Schwarzkopf said "Going to war without the French is like going deer hunting without an accordion. All you leave behind is a load of noisy baggage"

The typical attitude Froggie twiddlers have towards the world is that of superiors, they see themselves as the key to the world's problems -- trying to tell the Septics how to do things in the Middle East, yet they have less experience, and would just scarper anyway. The typical demeanour of a Frog is smoking whilst sitting on white metal chairs outside a cafe, sipping from a cup the size of a snail.

Frog military doctrine is played out as follows: Enemy Spotted-Retreat-Shift the blame. And since this doctrine was practised in WW2, they have done little else. And don't expect any gratitude after defending frogland, the Tom's returning across the Channel were spat at by Frog onlookers.

Recently standardised on one pattern of camouflage uniform, called CCE (Camouflage Centre Europe) as a replacement for the Denison derived TAP 47 camo pattern. Looks vaguely US probably so any French in the area can claim the spam victories as their own.

Don't seem to have won a war ever. They use the FAMAS rifle which is built for retreating only, the rate of fire is so fast because they cannot aim with their backs turned. There is no truth in the rumour that FAMAS stands for "Fritz, AM About to Surrender". Well not much!.

Defence policy consists of outsourcing any war fighting to more capable (less cowardly) organisations (ie. us) and concentrating on core competency (banning British beef to prop up own farmers and inventing strippers).

The only good side of the French Military is the French Foreign Legion. Much like the Gurkhas, It was often labelled by Press as a Mercenary Force posted to colonies in North Africa and Southeast Asia, but its soldiers swear no allegiance to France, only to the Legion and to each other. Well worth respecting.

Statistics show that in 25 years the majority of people living in France will be Arab.

Despite all the above, good country to be in if you like cheese and wine.
