French Troops Arrive in Iraq
big boys ^

Posted on 05/18/2005 12:05:50 PM PDT by ma bell

After over 2 years of strongly opposing the war in Iraq the French finally gave in and released a small amount of troops to assist with the rebuilding of Iraq. This is a clip of their arrival today.

Kind of reminds me of the story of the British Red-Coat taken captive by the French. The French soldier guarding the British officer asked him why they wore red coats, the officer said it was because when wounded, the red camouflaged the blood as not to demoralize the troops. When the French soldier relayed this story to his officer, the French immediately put out an order for all of their officers to start wearing brown pants...

French troops armed to the teeth without any bullets or shells for their weapons. If history is any guide, they will probably get lost or captured within minutes.

That demonstration of the French Troops hitting the Beach in Iraq certainly explains why we had to hit the beaches in Normandy, and why the French just Hate War. 8 Frenchmen hit the Beach, 2 get stuck in the mud, 4 Frenchmen are needed to pull the 2 out, so that leaves 2 to invade. So 2 out of 8 Frenchmen are able to attack the enemy in an assault. How many Frenchmen does it take to screw in a lightbulb??

I always liked the one about the terror alerts;
"France has just raised their terror alert from run to hide."

If Chirac had given this famous Churchill speech.

"We shall surrender in our nation, whatever the cost may be, we shall surrender on the beaches, we shall surrender on the landing grounds, we shall surrender in the fields and in the streets, we shall surrender in the hills; we shall never fire our weapons."

You overlooked a good one:

"The French are a smallish, monkey-looking bunch and not dressed any better, on average, than the citizens of Baltimore. True, you can sit outside in Paris and drink little cups of coffee, but why this is more stylish than sitting inside and drinking large glasses of whiskey I don't know."
--- P.J O'Rourke (1989)

Actually, I think the theme song from "Live and Let Die" is the new French national anthem.
