    Not that I particularly like the French, but during the Napoleonic wars and before they had an awesome battle record.

    Short version, The only time they win is when they are led by a Corsican (Napolean) or a Woman who hears voices in her head (Joan of Arc)

    Don’t forget surrender! Actually, the French have always had a strong military, but they have gone through periods of pacifism, and their corrupt government sold them out in WWII.

    Good thing tough. The germans already were sending the french soldiers home because they lacked room and supply for prisoners.

    As a historian, the first primary source I hit is Albino Blacksheep. However, I am slightly dissapointed that such great and venerable scholars somehow overlooked the colonial wars, and virtually every war before the Napoleonic. I mean the Frech, for most of their history, were surrounded to three sides by agressive world powers, and still managed to survive and run an overseas Empire on five continents: That only happens by winning wars.

    No clue what being surrounded by Canada or Mexico (and almost Greenland?) has to do with anything, but, considering Mexico IS invading (with civilians), I guess you have a point. No clue about Nicoragua (or Nicaragua), or North Africa (is that where Patton stomped on Rommel? I saw a movie about that) and Afganestan (Afghanistan?) isn’t losing, same with Iraq. Read something more than www.moveon.org or whatever Democratic “shit on the military/Bush administration” site’s you frequent.
