i just wanted to show that humour is a weapon,you feel better when you're not aimed at.

i did not think what i wrote before "is this one funny too ?",it was a try to make understand to the people who thought the 1st post was funny the kinds of feelings a french guy could have at reading it.....

toughluck may not be an A-H,but he should be more careful when trying to be funny ;\)

I think about all the anti-American sentiment out there and then I think about the millions of people from other countries trying to gain citizenship into this country every year. We must be doing something right. ;\) It's not perfect by any means, but it sure is nice being a American and living in this country. I've seen some of the oppressive rules and living conditions in other places and no thanks, Im happy right here.
I will say thanks as an American to the Brits, Aussies, etc as well as other smaller countries like Poland, etc who at least have the brass to stand up and take a stand. God Bless the Brits though, even when they have doubts they still back us up if nothing else out of loyalty and honor. I can take criticism from the Brits much easier than someone like France or Russia because at least the Brits have thier own people in harms way where as France wants to sit back and reap the benefits without getting its hands dirty because of its own political interest.
But ya know what, even as bad as the French have treated us, we would still be there again giving our own lives to help them. Thats just the way we are. Its Ironic really because we send millions of dollars to Russia each year to help them with thier economy, but you never hear about things like that. You only hear about a bomb going off course and hitting a house or something, nevermind that millions of people in this world are alive right now because we got involved and provided support in some form or another.
Generally Americans want to do the right thing and want a good relationship with other countries in the world, but we dont want to be told how to live or what to do. Thats the whole reason our forfathers left Europe and came to America in the first place.
Sorry for the rant, but I felt like saying something.

Don't know about the big politics (though I do think about it), but here is a recent impression I had from the French.

I went to a party the other day, and met a French exchange student there. Without going into the specifics of that conversation, I found him to be one of the most Arrogant and obnoxious people I'd ever met in the US. I know I shouldn't extrapolate this impression to the French in general, but this lovely specimen was so French (accent and all) that I couldn't help drawing some parallels.

After all, didn't the French invent the souffle and the sweet liqueur???!! \:D (what else? \:D )

All in all, I like the French and I like to correct their prejudices \:\)

Wondering: why did they enlist so many foreigners and why is the French Foreign Legion so great?
Warning: this is neither a positive nor a negative statement - just an observation. After all, it doesn't seem so "foreign" anymore ;\) .

"Foreigners by birth, the legionnaires have become Frenchmen by the blood they have spilled."

"The French Foreign Legion has inherited the traditions of foreign troops who have served France since the Middle Ages.

Every one has heard of the Scottish Guards of Charles the VIIth, the Swiss Guards of the Bourbon Kings, and Napoleon's Polish Lancers.

Louis Philippe, "King of the French" created the French Foreign Legion on March 10, 1831.

Composed exclusively of volunteers aged between 18 and 40, with or without means of identification, the Legion was immediately involved in the conquest of Algeria before passing under Spanish control in 1835.

A second Legion was then created which fought in Algeria, in Crimea (1855), in Italy (1859) and in Mexico (1863). In Mexico, it won one of its greatest titles to fame: on April 30, 1863, at the Camerone Hacienda near Puebla, 3 officers and 62 legionnaires resisted 2,000 Mexicans. After a day of heroic fighting the last five survivors fixed bayonets and charged.

This battle, whose name adorns every Legion flag, remains the symbol of a mission carried out to the bitter end.

1870: the Legion fought in France. It welcomed many foreigners who fought in its ranks (the same happened in 1914 and 1939).

Then came the campaigns of Tonkin, Sudan, Dahomey, Madagascar and Morocco.

1914: the 1st World War. After very heavy casualties, the disbanded regiments were merged into one: the Foreign Legion's "Regiment de Marche" headed by the famous Colonel Rollet, "the Father of the Legion".

World War I came to an end in France.

The Pacification of Morocco and the Middle East with the campaigns in the Rif, the Atlas and against the Druze.

1939-1945: on the eve of the Armistice, the 11th Regiment of the Foreign Legion was decimated, rather than forced to retreat.

The 13th Half-Brigade (Battalion) of the Foreign Legion made history at Narvik and Bjervik in Norway, then accomplished another feat in 1942 at the famous Bir-Hakeim victory in Libya.

The Legion was then reunited and fought victorious campaigns in Tunisia, Italy, Provence, Alsace and Germany.

In Indochina, the 5th Foreign Infantry Regiment escaped from the Japanese grip.

1945: the Indochina war began. Every Foreign Legion regiment was represented on the battlefield, particularly in Phu Tong Hoa, the Colonial Road 4, and Dien Bien Phu, where they fought to the last man.

1954: the entire Legion was back in Algeria. Its regiments, at first in charge of security, were soon sending out major intervention forces. They took an active part in large scale operations and in border defense duties.

1962 to the present day: after leaving Algeria, the regiments regrouped in the south of France and Corsica, or overseas in Djibouti, Madagascar, Tahiti, and French Guiana.

In 1969-1970, the 2nd Foreign Parachute Regiment and the 1st Foreign Regiment took part in the Chad operations.

In May 1978, the 2nd Foreign parachute Regiment saved hundreds of European and African civilians in Kolwezi, Zaire, from certain death.

The Legion has paid dearly in human lives during combat and pacification operations in which France has been involved.

Since 1831, 902 officers, 3,176 NCOs, and over 30,000 legionnaires have died for France; one third of them while fighting directly for the defense of the country."

"The Legionnaire is a volunteer.

Most often, he has come to the Legion to escape from his past.

Generally, he has joined because of a personal or family crisis or an upheaval in his social or political life. Striking examples of this can be found in the mass enlistment of Alsatians after 1871, of Spaniards in 1939 and of Eastern Europeans after 1945.

For others, those who are unable to deal with the limitations of a middle-class life, the Legion represents a life of adventure.

In the enlistment procedure, selection is very tough. Many candidates are turned down for medical reasons, or after a thorough study of their individual cases. The legionnaire is seldom an angel but never a criminal.

Once he has joined, under an assumed name if he wishes, the legionnaire enjoys an unequaled protection for as long as he serves, because of the anonymity rule. Only he can decide when to break it.

Coming from all over the world, with such different origins, languages and ideals, it would seem that they have nothing to share.

But they have one thing in common : they refuse to be mediocre. Rejecting easy solutions, the legionnaire has bravely broken with his past and his family.

Having lost his roots, he is ready to give all he has, even his life. This state of mind binds the legionnaires together and explains their unrivaled cohesion sealed with discipline, solidarity and respect for traditions.

The legionnaire is first and foremost a man of action, brave in combat and eager for change. He disdains idleness and routine.

He is generous to the point of sacrificing both his money and his life, and never loses trust in his leaders.

This trust fosters attachment, and the ties between the legionnaire and his leaders include as much respect and admiration as true and sincere affection. Alive, he will follow them everywhere, dead, he will never be abandoned.

That's why one perceives the Legion as a large family. A man who has left behind his past, his social and family background, transfers to the Legion his need of an ideal, his affection equating the Legion with that of a homeland, to the point of sacrificing everything to it with a generosity which has astonished the world. That accounts for the motto on the front of the Legion's Museum

LEGIO PATRIA NOSTRA"

Ian,

Not getting at you but it is standard practice for someone posting a "joke" to include at least one or two smilies to show that the post should be taken lightly. In this case there is no such thing and I suggest you do a search on toughluck's past posts to see what an obnoxious and racist moron he is, he is persistant in his anti French posts and is backed-up by his cohorts (not you) who claim that it is all done in good humour.

The fact is that without a shadow of a doubt Toughluck is anti French which makes him a racist and IMHO he should be banned from these boards. I have seen people banned from here for a lot less in the past and if the board administrators have any respect for themselves and the many French patrons on these forums they should have no hesitation for banning this guy.

I am sorry Seawolf, I will not 'let it die' I refuse to sit around while these racist attacks by this moron continue, I have been on the recieving end of racism and bigotry and it is not something that any decent minded person should just 'let die'. I have had relatives and friends murdered for being of a different religion to terrorists who believe that all people from my 'community' are scum.

I also find it hard to believe that the moderators on this forum have let these threads remain open, I am even more astonished that this racist has not been banned.

"Toughluck" also keeps insulting Germans in the Steel Beasts forum and no admin cares, although they have been informed. There seems to be a tacit approval for these kind of posts now.

Time to move on.

He finally seems to have been banned, if Spoons' post in the Steel Beasts forum is anything to go by.
