I always knew deep inside there was a comedian just dying to get out......but no dice on WW 1....you liberated nothing. But on the topic of comedy here is a good WW 1 joke (and an accurate one at that):

At a pub in Belgium, a French Poilu and British Tommy are sitting at a table drinking a beer.

One the table there is a 3rd glass of beer, untouched, and there is a third chair, empty.

Suddenly, an American Doughboy enters the pub, sits in the emtpy chair, picks up the untouched beer and proceeds to drink.

Immediately, he spits it out and yells, This beer is really flat!".

Bartender replies, "Well it's been sittin' there for four years waiting for ya, what did you expect!?".

You should beef up on history; your women knew who the real heroes were in the end (twice).

These days Epcot is the better choice since the Muslims aren't running the show, Mr. Migrant.

Our women were in the factories actually making a contribution...on the other hand, most Doughboys were in the pastures contracting syphilis....French sheep have never been the same since.

History is NOT your strong point. The french women aren't the best looking in Europe but I'm surprised that you would refer to them as sheep. I'm telling your wife you said that.

Epcot has better French food now that France only serves Islamic faith food with dietary restrictions.

Two days ago, three French soldiers were wounded in a suicide car bomb in NE Mali. Otherwise, Operation Serval/Barkhane has gone well. Islamist militants have been reduced to scraps of the border between Mali and Niger.

Wow, it's nice to see the French really doing something to make a difference.

I bet the sheep wish they could be protected at home, probably not cause of that denial thing.

Yet more proof you don't care about the war on terror when others are engaged in it.

Which leads me to my earlier question: Why the F do you care? You don't. It's people like you that snickered with glee when Bataclan happened. We get it, now move along.

101combatvet,

You have been warned numerous times to laid off the personal tit-for-tat exchanges. Posting an offending image does not help your case.

Take some time off and learn to heed Staff request and warnings.

Given that France has a lot of deployed resources engaged in anti-terrorist operations, it is a bit unfair to accuse it of somehow not caring or not contributing to the current NATO / members efforts.

France is arguably the 2nd / 3rd expeditionary NATO member and the only non-5Is state in continuous coalition operations.
