    [QUOTE]I am sort of chuckling myself.    I always linked that kind of a joke to Italy. Post Roman Empire, they have notoriously been worthless. The only real application to the French not being worth anything would be after WWI when their political intentions were centered around not really forming a legitimate military. Prior to WWI, they arguably had the best army in Europe and the best artillery of anyone. They did lose their little spat with Germany in 1871 in the Franco-Prussian War (which they initiated, mind you), which arguably was a root cause of WWI, but I think some people only look at WWII as a "bail out" of sorts. The US bailed out all of Western Europe, really, including countries that didn't know they were being bailed out (Spain, Portugal, even England).   This scaling back by France post WWI, was of course due to the disastrous situation that was the casualty rate in WWI with the lack of interest being politically driven.  Most countries in Europe took this course, actually. It's easy to see why they had no intentions of ever fighting another war.  But, if you go back through history, they had some of the best armies around. That brought us to WWII where they had very little invested and were run over, obviously. But, every country was essentially run over in Europe, except for England, Serbia and maybe Greece. Russia, too, of course. Love/hate relationship with France and it's too bad it got to that point. Both the US and France totally botched Vietnam, by the way. It's too bad France postures so much nowadays, politically, so I can see why they are seen in a negative light now here in this country.  But, when called upon to fight in battle, France was traditionally a military force in history. In the end, a good joke. It would just be better if it was applied to a different country.

    It's pretty sad you don't know what the term "knee-jerk" is, moron.

    Usually, simpletons use knee-jerk reactions because they can't reason.

    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/knee-jerk

    Do you even know what a "moron" is?  It's what your parents are within the crime of conceiving you.

    Two morons get together and create another moron.   Super.

    Daddy should have pulled out, then we wouldn't have another rube dancing around society.

    Good work understanding basic grammar, by the way. Try a book so you know how to use a plural or a possessive correctly.

    lol

    Why does this Stompper tool sound an awful lot like our friend Whodung?

    Signing in and out responding to multiple posts, sounding a lot like a Jets troll, probably won't work.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Why the English wore Red Coats in Battle : You must be part French. hehe Only thing I would say is the French get a bad rap and it's really tied to WWII where they didn't have a legit military, post WWI.   WWI had nothing to do with their willingness to fight.  They had no functioning modern military after the Versailles Treaty was signed in 1919. They fought valianty in WWI and previous other conflicts/wars for centuries. If any country is infamous for tap dancing and surrendering, it's Italy. WWI and WWII are both prime examples.

    The problem in Europe after WWI was that NO COUNTRY ever wanted to go through that ordeal again. Especially seeing that very little actual territory changed hands. They wanted peace soooo badly that they refused to admit to, or address Hitler's military build up in the early 30's. Cripes! They ignored his seizing territory awarded to France as war repirations! Then the British were as firm as a wet noodle handing over Austria and Czechoslovakia. Nice how they decieded to "stand firm" on Poland, when it was too late. 

    The big problem with the French military was that theyhad a WWI mentality in a WWII (vastly more mobility and weaponry) reality. So, they hunkered down in their forts of the Maginot Line and got clobbered. How DARE thise nazis invade where we don't think or plan for them to do so?????

    Then there's this little place in French Indochina called Diem Phu, when the French took strong military positions in a VALLEY surrounded by hills/mounains. The last French military leader that was worth a damn was Napoleaon, first edition. 

    That says it all.

    Agreed.

    This is why it's vital the loser of a war, after they intistigate said war, you know, sort of obeys a treaty. 

    Everyone else did it except Hitler.

    Also, I am not really comparing the military strategies or classic war generals, etc, but more so the misnomer of the common French soldier being a wuss.

    It's not really historically accurate. 

    That was my only point there.

    You know Rusty, sometimes wishes that can happen do happen. Are you ready for that day Rusty? Because sometimes you just never know how far someone is willing to reach for that dream, and just how far they will go to make it come true. Your mouth is putting you into deep waters old man, I hope you can swim because those waters have fish with big teeth.
    You have a great day Rusty.... and practice your strokes!Cool

    Russ and Stommper:

    If it helps either of you...I'll confide to you guys that I THINK, I'm a Socialist.  But definately more of a Liberal Socialist (I believe in the greater equality of failure...everyone should have equal rights to start, then fail, then be miserable...oh, then be free to speak out about it later on).  But no, I'm not anything like A Revolutionary Liberal Socialist...  Pssh lmao, ha-ha Nooo way.  No way, I'M d#mb enough to go to the pen and get r#ped then shanked by some crazy NON-idealist in the aryan brotherhood, just because I personally would like greater & even a little better distribution of resources & opportunities in this country.  Yaaa, THIS ain't gonna happen.  No sir-ey bob...He!!, it'd take "the man" (financially elite & powerful) to take MY last dollar, before I go ballistic...  But that's NOT say I WON'T fight; He!!, I actually LIKE to fight and I'm pretty d#mn good at it too.  Man, I'll fight for nothin...Haha, A roommate once pushed me when we were both drunk, and I guess he was acting like an angry drunk, BUT he was making a sandwich I was kindly & honestly simply offering him some fresh rye bread that I bought for his sandwich...  I'VE never physically PUSHED anyone (w/out them pushing ME first) no matter how drunk or miserable I was...But HE Did.  So, I lifted him staright off the ground and wung'm right into a glass coffee table sideways.  THIS is what's called, "Righteousness."  But I gotta draw the line, and I draw the line right at=fighting for a "worthy/noble" cause...This, this is something I can't even bear, & I don't think I can ever stoop to this level.

    History is written by the winners - neither the Germans or French won in WWII

    Stommmper your nitpicking of minute detail, where others were not totally incorrect is absurd for a non-sports post in a sports discussion board.

    Rather then supplying facts of any errors or debatable areas, your personal attacks and name calling just shows how immature you are and how even if you are right no one would take you seriously anyway.

    But, he has friends from Ukraine and Cuba so that means he's intelligent. lol

    Quite the rant there sonny. Do you feel all tough and manly now? Here's a clue tough guy. You claim ( doubtful ) that you know peope from Cuba and the Ukraine. Big freakin' deal. I've been to more countries than you could probably name. Why BB and I were hyaving an intelligent conversation and you jump in with your grade school mentality and silly internet tough guy act. Do you and Wedat live in the same basement?

    The fact is child you offer nothing intelligent or coherent. Always funny that the more clueless people are the louder they are. Stick to your coloring books child and leave the serious discussions to the grownups.

    Re: Why the English wore Red Coats in Battle

    I'm going to call BS on some stuff here. First most Toyota plants are NON union. And the reason for that is when ever theres union talk they give them more money. The difference between Japaneese and Us auto mentality is that the US auto plants make X vehicles a shift. they then flood their dealerships with vehicles to sell. Make 600 a shift 2 shifts a day 6 days a week. Take into account with my numbers some shifts are for service parts and breakdowns do occur and they have to catch up.
    Where as at toyota for example they might make 550 per shift 2 shifts a day 6 days a week. the difference *pre gas petal stuff* is that most of those vehicles are already sold. You go to a dealership and ask for a special vehicle and see how long it takes you to get it.
    At toyota, for example, they stop and strech and do some "asian things". Try to get a UAW guy to stretch 2 X a day. They would file a greivance on you and complain for years. Try to get a UAW skilled trade guy to do something or to let you do something on a machine that your company makes.
    Now not all UAW workers are like that in all fairness. Its the bad apples that ruin it for the rest. theres some guys that do less before 9:00 then most people dont do in a whole day.
    The real problem with the american vehicle is that they get kids out of auto college. these are the people that design a lot of this stuff. Then the union argues about all the stations that it takes to make and assemble these vehicles. Their first and most priority is not how to make a good car, its how many jobs will you eliminate by putting in a robot . Not if its easier or better just if your going to put Sam who hasn't done a thing in the last 20 years out of work.
    Some of the skilled trade guys I feel sorry for, their smart hard working guys, but they have to tow the union line. Cant work too hard or you make Sam look bad. When theres a layoff they make the union pick who goes. Low senority hard working guys are first. So Sam that has 3 years 4 months, 9 weeks, 4 days and 32 seconds till he retires is protected. So yes back in the henry ford days Unions were good but they have turned into people who think their entitled. the NFL's union is becomming the same. Be happy you have a job, let alone a big $ one. So flame away.
