French and English are allowed to make fun of each other. I think there's a law about it somewhere. :P

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Overall... i have to agree, but the UK should not get involved with French Adventurism... after all is said and done they did NOT support the UK in the Falklands conflict, but DID supply Argentina with Exocet Missiles

In fact, they supplied us with Exocet and Super Entendard before the war, but after the our retaking, they withhold more planes and missiles by request of the UK, and even gave some missiles codes to the UK. Yeas, the French help the UK in the conflict.

Im an evil pinko UN slave liberal commie

I don't think any of these "The Vague Society of Nebulous Meanies are going to take over the world and light up a planet" theories worry too much about practical considerations like that. It's all about rousing ill-informed, paranoiac fear, not making sense.

yes they did, the book i mentioned above gives an insight into politics and diplomatic part of the war. - when we realised an invasion was about to happen. we sent three Subs, but even at 25Knots they were unable to get there on time. Thatcher phoned the US president Regan and told him to put pressure on the Junta to stop the Invasion but the wheels were already in motion. Regan said the US stance was neutral and didn't want to see two of its allies go to war. - Thatcher in no uncertain terms told him to deiced whose side he was on and then put the phone down. :tsu: its a interesting book.
