The French [beej]

' Going to war without France is like going duck hunting without your accordion.' -- Donald Rumsfeld, U.S. Secretary of Defense
'Somebody was telling me about the French Army rifle that was being advertised on eBay the other day. The description was, 'Never shot. Dropped once.''
Q. Why are there so many tree-lined boulevards in France? A. Germans like to march in the shade. Q: Why don't the French want to bomb Saddam Hussein? A: Because he hates Americans, loves mistresses, and wears a beret. -- Conan O'Brien
'The last time the French asked for more proof it came marching into Paris under a German flag.' -- David Letterman


  1. Heh, top stuff. I've not normally much love for the French but I've moved to abject hatred now. They've a long history of fucking the allies, starting with De Gaul. If they were just pacifists like our local anti-war movement then I could deal with that. But it's not the same brand of uninformed left soundbiting that the Mirror is trotting out, it's just out and out corruption. The whole security council knows it. Death to the French!

  2. Oh, and remember when the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade was the victim of a "targetting error"? Perhaps Chirac would like to chew on this:URL: The French Embassy, tomorrow.

  3. Great article here by historian Paul Johnson in Forbes which I think I may as well quote the start of;

    We have been reminded that France is not to be trusted at any time, on any issue. The British have learned this over 1,000 years of acrimonious history, but it still comes as a shock to see how badly the French can behave, with their unique mixture of shortsighted selfishness, long-term irresponsibility, impudent humbug and sheer malice. Americans are still finding out--the hard way--that loyalty, gratitude, comradeship and respect for treaty obligations are qualities never exhibited by French governments. All they recognize are interests, real or imaginary. French support always has to be bought.

  4. Nice think piece, although it's a little bit right of most ;)

  5. Lies, it doesn't say 'Death to the French' once!PIC: Beej just sent this in.PIC: And this..Quality :)

  6. This literally made me want to fucking weep. These people are in the in the ground for the fucking french and they do this. Fuckers.
