How can you compare the two countries? One is serveral thousand years old, the other is several hundred. We lost three wars so far, Korea, Vietnam, ok, I'll say two since some would say Iraq is still winnable. By winning, I say acheiving the goals of the conflict. If we continue at that rate, we'll lose a war every couple of hundred of years, far outdoing your French history timeline.

It's inaccurate to say Korea was lost if upon entering our role was to maintain status quo. In terms of territory there, we actually made territorial gains against the previous 38th parallel.

But Ivan was wrong with respect to WWI. We really didn't "save" France militarily. The war was primarily won by the French and Brits. We provided help, and 115,000 Americans suffered casualties, but it's inaccurate to say we saved them.

Ever hear of little thing called the Revolutionary War?


Please elaborate. I'm interested in some of the facts, what did France contribute to the US winning its independence? I tried searching the web and found nothing. I don't really know too much about this war and you seem to.


Is this a joke? If you don't know, and you're American, then shame on you. But maybe this will help a little:

Shame on me! I can't know everything. I know plenty about the revolutionary war, but not all the specifics of Frances involvement. That's what I wanted you to elaborate on! I checked our your links, Thanks for those. They still don't go into too much detail, which is what I was asking. I know they were on our side and helped with arms and such. So sorry to ask you for your knowledge since we're here to find out such things.

I can tell you that WE (Europe) defenetly don't need his advice and he should back off. Im happy Chirac stoop up. No one in Europe listens to what Bush says, luckely and I hope no one will do anymore so he looses the elections.
