I haven't watched the vids, but, doesn't France have a pretty good win loss ratio in wars overall?

I'd say it's about 50/50. France won WWI and Napoleon had a ton of victories over a span of about 10 years and it ultimately took six Coalitions I believe to finally bring him down but France lost The Seven Year's War which was a major blow to its global colonial empire and it lost WWII but ultimately ended up on the winning side by 1945. Oh and there was the Franco-Prussian War which France lost which had major ramifications for the balance of power in Europe.

According to a quick wiki source...take it with a grain of salt of course.

Historian Niall Ferguson argues that France is the most belligerent military power in history. It participated in 50 of the 125 major European wars fought since 1495; more than any other European state. It is followed by Austria which fought in 47 of them; Spain in 44; and England in 43. Out of the 169 most important world battles fought since 387BC, France has won 109, lost 49 and drawn 10.

At the other end of the spectrum you have countries like Sweden which have not been involved in a war against another nation-state in over 200 years. I'm pretty sure the last war Sweden fought in was the Napoleonic Wars.

What about ISIS? I'd call that a lynching party on an epic scale.

What age group are these videos made for? I'd be curious to know.

IDK. That fighter plane video forgot the F-18 and the horizontal takeoff fighter from True Lies.
