Send in the clowns!

"Rebel vehicles were spotted moving south of Abeche, where French forces have a base about 155 miles east of N'Djamena, Col. Thierry Burkhard said Thursday.
"Chadian forces in front are of course preparing to engage in combat," he said. "We have our forces who are on the deployment site, where we have increased slightly the alert level and vigilance
."

I like that. Last week, the Frenchies "increased slightly the alert level and vigilance."

Well it's always good to be, uh, vigilant. Just stand around holding your weapon/dick and watching, that is, as people slaughter women and children with machetes.

I am sure the Chadians and Sudanese refugees are feeling sooo much safer knowing that "French forces"are there to "protect" them. One wonders why the refugees are still fleeing. Don't they know the French have their backs?

" The French haven't the nature for war. Their Gallic laziness combines with their Latinate voluptuousness with the result that they would rather eat and make love with their faces than fight."
Last of the Mohicans, the movie.

"...their Latinate voluptuousness..."

Can you imagine a phrase like that in a present day film? Of course you can't. Talk about evidence of how far we've regressed!

Of course, not long after after the time the speech was set, the French and their American allies wrested most of British America from the crown. And not so long after that, they marched as conquerors into every European capital besides Saint Petersburg. (And they did take Moscow if briefly.)

It is a good speech though.

In 1914-18, 1.3 million Frenchmen were killed defending their country, which is to say more than twice as many as all the Americans who have died in every foreign war from 1776 until today.

Yes, Anon and thank God for George Washington's Frenchy friend, Lafayette who helped us beat the British!

Voyons : vous auriez battu les brits tôt ou tard.

Quant aux soldats français, en tant que français, je les veux sur nos frontières : pas en train de faire les clowns en Afghanistan ou Tchad !

L´Afghanistan aux afghans.
Le tchad aux tchadiens.

You keep saying that Anon, Afghanistan is for Afghans, so Osama bin Laden should get the hell out!
