    Once at a NY Rangers game at MSG there were visiting fans from the Buffalo Sabres sitting in front of my friend and I and we spent most of the game telling them to go back to Canada and they were not amused.

    France did pretty okay in World War 2 considering what they were up against. It always bothers me when people give them crap for it. They surrendered fast, but...so did Poland, so did the Netherlands, so did Belgium, so did Luxembourg. It's a lot more complex a situation than anyone gives it credit for, and the British were as involved in the French surrender as the French were. The French actually launched a successful offensive campaign into Germany when Poland was attacked, only to be stopped and sent back 8 days later, while they were making headway, by a British/French delegation which included Neville Chamberlain.

    Then, despite the fact that their military had been progressing towards a more offensive mindset, they hunkered down defensively on the unfinished Maginot line, because politicians. One invasion of the Netherlands later and the French get outflanked due to the Luftwaffe absolutely destroying the French and British and establishing air superiority. Mind you, France has like 110 divisions total at this point, 100 of which are on the German border or in Belgium. Then 30 divisions show up from Italy a week later in a whole other part of the country. Of course they surrendered.

    Hindsight is 20/20, but gimme a break. Germany won a lot of territory from a lot of countries. France just looked bad because we hadn't had the opportunity to study and the new German tactics until countries like France fell. Not to mention, the war got a whole lot more winnable when Germany got all eastern fronty and sent 3/4's of their resources into a Russian meat grinder.

    So did the British and Americans, and Market Garden was an even bigger shitshow. The French military did everything a l'outrance to bail out Belgium while their government demanded a defensive war to prevent another Verdun. They got juked and caught out, but they by no means didn't hold their own any worse than the British and Americans at the time. It wasn't until Russia broke Germany's back that anybody on the west started making real headway.

    France crapped on our super awesome war on terror a while back so we took away their naming rights to French Fries. Many years later, I returned fire.

    Your move, France.
