    • @the_MEK Yeah, it looks quite cowardice but this is France we are talking here. I am pretty sure most people from the entire world would say they have already shown that as their reputation.

      The French are renown for sending up the white flag, i dont care what anyone says.. except for the French Resistance during the World War the French are inbred cowards especially the Vichy French..

      we all know that they willhave to leave but they should all leave together not run like cowards and make it even more dangerous for the other Coalition soldiers left over there that behave like true professionals unlike the "french"

      Napoleons troops were amongst the bravest in history and the french were also extremely tough in WW1, it's true they were surprised and overrun by the Germans in WW2, but you have to remember that the British army who were sent to help them were also easily defeated (by luck they were able to escape via Dunkirk).

  • France aspires to become a superpower as evidenced by their plans to build a supercarrier. It takes intestinal fortitude to be a superpower. I guess they plan to patrol it around San Francisco Bay where it's safe.

      We already have a carrier, the only one in Europe. It's in the Persian Gulf at this time.

  • the part where the president from France is talking about leaving is new, but the 4 troops dying was reported by the taliban posters here 2 days ago as '6 french troops' lol

    Now we know they killed their own brother muslim afghan, and destroyed their own civilian afghanistan market, yet again in a cowardice suicide attack

  • It's time for everyone to get the hell out of Afghanistan anyways. There's no way for the western world to impose our values in that shithole. As soon as we're gone, the Taliboners will be back in power and that's fine by me. Al Qaida is largely done for the time being, Bin Laden is dead. Mission accomplished. Time to send the troops home.

  • my respects to the soldiers who perished. truly. having said that, the french can be summed up with one name: deGaulle. that rat, after fleeing to england, had the audacity to parade around france after the allies liberated it like a conquering champion. then, to thank everyone for their sacrifices, pulls out of the nato alliance while still fully expecting to be defended if the russians had ever invaded. typical.

      You gotta look at the reality of the situation, this war has gone on for 11 years with still no end in sight, meanwhile both Europe and America look to be heading towards another recession.The point is that getting out of Afghanistan is a smart move, only warmongering idiots would want to stay there for a few more futile years.

      i will agree we should never have been there in the bloody 1st place..but we are there islam like the evil that it is is turning all non-muslims against each other in the same way as they do against each other "Sunni killing Shia sufi killing wahabi" the only thing they ever agree on is spreading the evil and killing everyone that will not conform to their evil ideology.
      we have to stop this evil invasion of our countrys now or it will be to late..it wont happen in my lifet More..

      Do you have any idea how much French troops are deployed in Africa and Middle east?
      Do you know that Al qaida is moving in Africa were I don't see English troops so much.
      Speaking about Stan I would be personally happy to see more combat troops involved but reality is that danger is coming from south now.

      10.000 troops deployed for NATO, Ivory coast, Lebanon...
      30.000 other troops outside France prepositioned in strategic points around the world.

      Treaty of Versailles was signed More..

  • This new French president is a good guy, he doesn't want his soldiers to continue to die for nothing. Getting out early is the smart thing to do.
