I think Frances involvement in WWI and WWII should be mentioned and how they were not exactly great warriors in these wars should be mentioned. Conservative 00:18, 21 April 2007 (EDT)conservative

Just a wild guess: You're not of French lineage? Rob Pommertalk 00:38, 21 April 2007 (EDT)
I said I would not give any clues regarding my identity. Regardless, I do think that WWI and WWII were big wars and French involvement and what happened in regards to their involvement should be mentioned. Conservative 00:39, 21 April 2007 (EDT)conservative
I don't actually care WHO you are, I just made a rhetorical comment because someone of French lineage would find such an article highly offensive. And yes, it slab quotes a ton of material from wikipedia. Rob Pommertalk 00:50, 21 April 2007 (EDT)
I don't know what to do about the "slab quotes". I don't know what you mean by "slab quotes". If it quotes too closely from Wikipedia tell Aschlafly I guess. Conservative 00:54, 21 April 2007 (EDT)conservative
In fact, Conservative, the French acquitted themselves extremely well in WWI. There seems to be a recent myth that the French have always been unsuccessful as warriors. I would have thought that anyone with even a minimal knowledge of history would know that that was not true. --Horace 00:57, 21 April 2007 (EDT)
This is how I check for "Slab quotes": I highlight a section of text and right click, I pick the option to search Google from what I have just highlighted, if the text appears verbatim anywhere , but especially from Wikipedia, I consider it as "slab quote". Rob Pommertalk 01:02, 21 April 2007 (EDT)
If you think copyright laws are violated then blank out the article. Conservative 01:07, 21 April 2007 (EDT)conservative

It's fun to insult the French, even though they've been fighting and dying along with Americans in Afghanistan. Czolgolz

It makes a change from insulting the Brits. Neither is warranted. Must be a Conservative Christian thing. Change of subject...without getting off my, um, chair, I can think of the following: 100 Years War. War of the Three Henrys. Spanish Succession. Austrian Succession. Crimean. WWI. None was in the list. And these were big wars, not brush fires. There must be more. AlanE 05:47, 25 May 2007 (EDT)
