"The chief foundations of all states, new as well as old or composite, are good laws and good arms; and as there cannot be good laws where the state is not well armed, it follows that where they are well armed they have good laws." -Machiavelli
Does any body here read military history? Or even care too?
The French produced such wimps as Napoleon Bonaparte who conquered most of Europe, the Gauls who fought hundreds of Roman legions from 58-52 BC, had dozen of colonial empires for roughly two hundred years which rivaled British imperialism, WWI where tens of thousands of Frenchmen died in mud soaked fields and trenches and the French resistance helped win WWII and whose members were killed in the thousands by the Nazis.
Let's not forget the French Foreign Legion which is perhaps one of the oldest military fighting unit in history.
It was a funny video though.
