    In light of the current "French bashing" going on in THR, I thought this product brought some levity to the whole manner. Pretty funny.

    Considering that the French have actually experienced war on their own soil I'm willing to cut them a little slack on this issue.

    That's mighty civil of you, hso, but we've had a few wars of our own. (see, I can pun, too)

    The French had experienced a LOT of war on their own soil, mainly because they are so darn bad at it. To me, that is no reason to cut the NancyBoys any slack at all.

    Typically within the last 100 years the French have not been prone to testicular fortitude in their actions to defend themselves, let alone others.

    They have been socialist for that long.

    Quick, name two weapons considered by many to be good fighting guns designed and made by the french.

    Okay, name one? If you look at it this way you can see their mindset is not on defense of their nation. Countries whose armies stand ready to actually do something have programs in place to develop arms for those armies. Something France has not done in a over a century.

    The people of France do owe a great debt to the US and it's allies for obvious reasons. This talk from them that we fight when not necessary for personal gain is smoke and mirrors as they know geography as well as we do.

    Japan is not the 51st state, nor Germany or a host of others whose butt we kicked and then helped rebuild in lieu of owning them as states.
