Gotta love a rowdy American Marine!

I'm sure you will love this...
From a Marine in Bosnia. Note the signature, but read it last...

A funny thing happened to me yesterday at Camp Bondsteel (Bosnia): A
French army officer walked up to me in the PX, and told me he thought
we(Americans) were a bunch of cowboys and were going to provoke a war.
He said if such a thing happens, we wouldn't be able to count on the
support of France.

I told him that it didn't surprise me. Since we had come to France's
rescue in World War I, World War II, Vietnam, and the Cold War, their
ingratitude and jealousy was due to surface at some point in the near
future anyway.

That is why France is a third-rate military power with a socialist
economy and a bunch of faggots for soldiers.

I additionally told him that America, being a nation of deeds and
action, not words, would do whatever it had to do, and France's support
was only for show anyway. Just like in ALL NATO exercises, the US would
shoulder 85% of the burden, as evidenced by the fact that the French
officer was shopping in the American PX, and not the other way around.

He began to get belligerent at that point, and I told him if he would
like to, I would meet him outside in front of the Burger King and beat
his *** in front of the entire Multi-National Brigade East, thus
demonstrating that even the smallest American had more fight in him than
the average Frenchman. He called
me a barbarian cowboy and walked away in a huff.

With friends like these, who needs enemies?

stupid french? sure. but stupid germany. my god. where does germany get the balls to tell us what to do about war? why in the hell would ANYONE listen to germany when is comes to advice involving war?! in the last century, they tried to take over the world TWICE and got slammed down. now they try and tell us not to go into iraq? god i hate germany.
yes, americans are cocky, but we have reasons to be. germans are cocky and they always have been. the world seems to think that germans are the best engineers. where the hell does that come from? oh, they have mercedes and bmw "built for the autobahn so they must be fast and simply the best." ANY company could make cars like that or better for that amount of money. i am so sick of german cars being seen as "the best" by people who have no idea what they're talking about (most citizens of pretty much every country including america).
i did a lot of thinking as to whether i would join the military or go to college. i chose college and while i'd be proud to serve and represent my country in any war, i would quit college and run to the nearest enlistment location if we were to go to war against germany. yeah it's highly unlikely we will anytime soon, but man, i'd ride a bomb all the way down while telling them off. god i wish we had dropped "fat man" and "little boy" on germany instead.
the biggest holiday over there is oktoberfest and all they do is get wasted and act like a bunch of bavarian asses. god i hate germany. I HATE YOU GERMANY!!!

If you condem an entire country, your a "barbarian cowboy". Now if you condem a small group of people, and are willing to go through a million man army to do justice right, then you can be a marine.

Blind Faith in your leaders can only lead to destruction.

i should say that germans have been fooled by putting blind faith in their leaders, but they obviously didnt. no one is that stupid to kill 6million innocent people simply because they were told to. and no one forced them to become nazis. something like that would never happen in america.

Sounds like something a Marine would say, but I'm not sure about the accuracy of it. Could be an urban legand.

I work for a couple of German guys. Just the other day one partner was talking about the comments that the German leader made. He was very embarassed, as he said many of his buddies are. And these are intelligent guys. He just sold a hi-tech company for many mill and moved here.

The other fella is an engineer by trade and had also been very successful prior to moving here to start a business. He is big on his engineering expertise I admit, but I rationalise with him that, as with anything, there is a point where things get over-engineered beyond cost/benefit.

These guys love this country. What the Supreme German A**w*pe and his Generals did way back over half a century ago is history. The world changes and we move forward. There are other threats now.

Needless to say, they probably didn't drop it on Germany given the devastation that would be felt by everyone in Europe, not just Germans.

IMHO
