It's almost as though this is a highly volatile part of the world that is still coming out of a very recent civil war.

Well, it will be interesting to see how the Obama administration handles another complete and total blunder.  Is he going to do nothing, and sit back and watch his Islamofascist brothers attack a valued and trusted NATO ally?  Will he risk the lives of American soldiers to help an ungrateful and valueless "Old Europe" socialist dictatorship?  Will he send in only drones to continue his campaign of cowardly war and violation of human rights?  Stay tuned!

'linoleum blown apart' = 'Napoleon Bonaparte'

At least, that's what I'm laughing about over here.

You're confusing that with the one they got the British to raise at Yorktown.

And you never thanked them.

To hell with that.  French military history is badass.  WWII went badly for them because they were the first real military to find out what a game changer mechanized warfare was.  It would serve the Libyans about right to turn the french loose on them.

I was going to correct you, but I didn't realize that France had rejoined NATO.  Learn something new.

Their showing in WWI was pretty wretched, too, and they completely bungled the whole end-of-empire thing after WWII. Much of the 20th century went poorly for France, military-wise.

And I was just derping to show that there is absolutely no way he will be able to handle this event without drawing criticism from the "Right" for something.  Be nice to hear how the Republicans think we should respond, if at all.

Not to mention the Franco-Prussian War in 1870 where they were solidly trounced, creating Germany.  Come to think of it between this, WWI, WWII, Indo-China...the late 19th and 20th Centuries were pretty crappy for the french military.

Each European continental power that made a play for hegemony failed and drifted into a slow decline from being a Great Power.  It happened with Spain after the Thirty Years' War, with France after Napoleon's gambit, and the Germans after two wars of aggression in Europe resulted in global conflicts.

And really, I'd say Germany had the first military to find out it was a game changer.

The problem's never been the quality of fighting men; the problem has been the stupid generals who lead them.

So, how long have you been holding on to that one Subby?

/tres amusant
 
2013-04-23 12:47:36 PM
Let me guess it was an angry mob upset about a video going around the internet and not a terrorist attack that the French downplayed because they totally dropped the ball on security, reaction and response in the middle of an election.
