Oh Dear. The ceasefire has broken down and hostilities have resumed. Next stop Paris and the Channel ports.Ok, so we continue with "this". No I've never operated one of the vaunted "MWPs" (Multiple White Flag Projector" of the French Army, but I was on "operations" in the lovely country of Kosovo and I didn't like it a bit, because all the locals are mad as a French officer who just can't
admit that he spread a bit of rubbish. Your constant throwing of smoke grenades, your constant evasion and also your constant changing of topics do not change the facts.
All that you regurgitate has already been mentioned in the various articles and it still remains that France also has technical problems, as well as problems with the reliability of the Tiger.
Like you, I could make one or two sarcastic jokes about 13 dead French soldiers who died in a collision between a Tiger and a Cougar, but all I can think is "Poor bastards!" There are no enemies in cemeteries and definitely no room for antipathy either.
To come back to you and my "inferiority complex" that you diagnosed, if you're not constantly on strike and counting down the days to early retirement, investigations like mine take 10 or 15 minutes at most.
With you, however, I wonder if they really let you loose on living people. With your whole manner and your whole behaviour you only show that you are incapable of criticism and unteachable. Officers like you are dangerous, for operations and for the lives of your men, but people like you exist in all armies.
In my time, both enlisted men and non-commissioned officers laughed our heads off at people like you. When things got serious, they were less funny.
Wise people learn when they can; fools learn when they must.
But they probably only let you command a desk that is responsible for ordering toilet paper or athlete's foot remedies.
