Clearly not TOO bright if they`re friends with you.
The hundreds of Americans that I personally know as friends and work colleagues are some of the best, brightest people on the planet. But somehow you guys get lumped (unfairly, I think) with the national stigma of being fat, stupid, imperialistic twats.
Let it be known that it is because the fat, stupid, imperialistic twats like Luniz82 (quote: "Good for France still full of a bunch of gutless retards") that your fine and upstanding country is the most loathed country in the world on an international scale.
Lose the Fox retards, or at least make them shut up some, and the rest of us are willing to welcome you with open arms.
We know you`re good guys (sincerely, no dig here). Like most countries, there`s just a minority of absolute wankers spoiling the party for the rest of you.
7000 maquis against 22000 SS with air support...how the hell is that gutless? Admittedly, the leader of that maquis group wasn`t French (Nancy Wake - one of the British special forces soldiers I referred too, although she was a new Zealander by nationality) but the rest of them were.
I wonder if Luniz82 would go up against the SS with air support when outnumbered 3 to 1.
No, actually, I don`t.
Incidentally, the maquis won.
> "vorpalsword: Ever try submitting something lately?"
Vorpal has five submitted links in the feed, which is two more than you Koala (which we`re grateful for BTW, keep em coming, both of you). So to answer your question:
Yes. Yes he has.
For the sake of accuracy: the Free French and the Resistance were different groups. The Free French were outside occupied France (many in the British military), the resistance were inside it. You could also make a distinction between the resistance (undercover, living openly under occupation) and the maquis (hiding out in wild land as a guerilla force), thought that`s less clear.
France had to surrender early in WW2 - it was an impossible fight. As soon as there was a ghost of a chance, many of the French fought. Which they couldn`t have done if France hadn`t surrendered, because they would have been dead.
We can also thank British special forces for organising French resista
I used to be the same way, but I chose to stop being stupid.
On the other hand, the Aussie national anthem talks about "Golden soil and wealth [in exchange for] toil", but that doesn`t mean Aussies do any actual hard work.
You really haven`t a clue. You are proudly parading your total ignorance and you don`t realise that people are laughing at you.
France has had a strong military reputation for a thousand years. A few highlights:
i) France withstood centuries of invasion attempts by the most powerful country in medieval Europe (England) even when it had a massive advantage in military technology. France eventually pushed that country`s invasion and occupation forces out of France.
ii) France played a key role in the success of the revolt of the American colonies. Without France, the USA probably wouldn`t exist. Canada and Mexico would be much larger.
iii) France played a key role in protecting the retreat of the British army from Dunkirk, which was very important in WW2.
iv) France fought in WW2 (Maquis, Free French).
You know nothing and you are determined to remain utterly ignorant.
"America is your friend", he said."Mooligumbi!" cheered the crowd."We will help you overcome poverty.""Mooligumbi!" enthused the crowd."America values your partnership and will reward you for allowing us to put our bases in Kenya.""MOOLIGUMBI!!" shouted the crowd.
Later, Barack was being shown around the city by the President of Kenya, and they came to a huge ranch. "This is where we keep all our world-famous Kenyan Stud Bulls, Mr Obama", said the Kenyan President. "I will take you to see one up close, just be careful not to step in the mooligumbi."
