French Military Victories

I'm pleased that the French are now behaving more like allies than enemies, but there is this one little problem.

Yes, it has been a long dry stretch since 1812 and Borodino.

Interestingly enough, Cinco de Mayo commemorates the French defeat by the Mexicans at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

Cinco de Mayo is not as big a deal in Mexico as it is in the U.S. The Mexican Independence Day is actually September 16.

They may not win much but they are recognized as the world's best at one particular maneuver. It's easy to learn but almost impossible to master like the French have. Here's how you do it:

1. Stand in front of a mirror (to observe your technique and detect areas where you need to work harder)
2. Assume an upright position with feet placed shoulder width apart, head bowed.
3. Shoot both hands straight up above your head until your elbows lock, hands open and palms facing forward.
4. Repeat millions of times until perfected.

I must dis-agree with you...There is at least one military victory, and naval at that, which you have overlooked:
