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.

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 say what he thought of the French military capability and their trustworthiness.

General Schwarzkopf said "going to war without the French is like going deer hunting without an accordian"

Don't seem to have won a war lately, but I certainly wouldn't want to mess with them. Foreign Legion is mainly made up of Frenchmen claiming to be either natives of Switzerland or Belgium (See French Foreign Legion).

Recently standardised on one pattern of camouflage uniform, called CCE (Camouflage Centre Europe). Looks vaguely US.

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

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

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