There's a Joke in Here: "Al Qaeda Retreating from French ADVANCE"
Though, I still haven't thought of a good punchline:
French air strikes destroyed the home of the leader of an Al-Qaeda-linked group in northern Mali as French-led forces advanced Sunday on the Islamist stronghold of Timbuktu.How sorry is your insurgency when the French are kicking your ass? Update by Howie: Standard Yoda schtik added.
The overnight strikes in Kidal came 24 hours after French-led troops seized Gao, the most populated town in Mali's Islamist-controlled arid north, which is roughly the size of Texas.
"But......but......The Germans told us these guys were PU$$IES!!"

If the French politicians had the spine of their troops, Islam would today be a topic of university study in Algiers, and maybe not even an important topic.

Face it. To some the Germans, the Brits and the French will never do anything right. Amazing how the Japanese are never at fault for anything. Why is that?

The point I will attempt to point out again. We hear the constant lamblasting of the Germans, French and Brits yet very little on the atrocities committed by the Japanese. Why? Because the Jews constantly remind us of what happened to them and not what happened to many more.
And for your info. It was Hitler who demanded that the Japanese cease in Nanking. If he didn't apply pressure on them hundreds of thousands more and perhaps many millions would have been slaughtered. The Japanese wished to depopulate areas of China and replace them with Japanese.
A group that constantly belays the Germans, French and Brits and later expects them to come to their aid isn't playing the right cards. Very few people (and no decision makers) are alive today. So what did they have to do with it? Why keep shoving things they had nothing to do with in their faces? What good could come from it?

The French gov't tends to be totally fine with using force, they just don't want the upstart US to do it.

I quote for a change:
"During the late 1980s, the Foreign Legion saw a large intake of trained soldiers from the UK. These men had left the British Army following its restructuring and the Foreign Legion's parachute unit was a popular destination. At one point, the famous 2eme REP had such a large number of British citizens amongst the ranks that it was a standing joke that the unit was really called '2eme PARA', a reference to the Second Battalion, the Parachute Regiment of the British Army."
Wikipedia I know but easy o hand.

Better to come home and concentrate on defending America from internal as well as external enemies.
Stomp Mohamedism into dust? Even modern, educated, freedom loving Muslims aren't even thinking about leaving the teachings of Mohammed. Islam is growing even in modern societies.

recently unearthed diary reveals an unlikely rescuer of thousands of
Chinese: a German businessman living in China who was the leader of the
local Nazi organization.
The businessman, John Rabe, kept a
1,200-page diary that provides a rare third-party account of the
atrocities. In it, he writes of digging foxholes in his backyard to
shelter 650 Chinese and of repelling Japanese troops who tried to climb
over the wall, of dashing through war-torn areas to deliver rice, and of
stopping Japanese soldiers from raping Chinese women. He even wrote to
Hitler to complain about the Japanese actions.

The elimination of the Chinese POWs began after they were transported
by trucks to remote locations on the outskirts of Nanking. As soon as they
were assembled, the savagery began, with young Japanese soldiers encouraged
by their superiors to inflict maximum pain and suffering upon individual
POWs as a way of toughening themselves up for future battles, and also
to eradicate any civilized notions of mercy. Filmed footage and still photographs
taken by the Japanese themselves document the brutality. Smiling soldiers
can be seen conducting bayonet practice on live prisoners, decapitating
them and displaying severed heads as souvenirs, and proudly standing among
mutilated corpses. Some of the Chinese POWs were simply mowed down by machine-gun
fire while others were tied-up, soaked with gasoline and burned alive.

Nanking (now called Nanjing).

After the destruction of the POWs, the soldiers turned their attention
to the women of Nanking and an outright animalistic hunt ensued. Old women
over the age of 70 as well as little girls under the age of 8 were dragged
off to be sexually abused. More than 20,000 females (with some estimates
as high as 80,000) were gang-raped by Japanese soldiers, then stabbed to
death with bayonets or shot so they could never bear witness.

then had their bellies slit open and the fetuses torn out. Sometimes, after
storming into a house and encountering a whole family, the Japanese forced
Chinese men to rape their own daughters, sons to rape their mothers, and
brothers their sisters, while the rest of the family was made to watch.
