The French basically stomped balls for most of their history. They beat the crap out of the Romans repeatedly and actually became something that Roman mothers used to scare their children at night, the ****ing Romans! These are people who rolled up most of the known world at the time but they couldnt seem to take the scruffy naked not-yet-called Frenchmen. They kicked the Seljuks in the teeth (and the Seljuks were serious iron-balled badasses) several times. They fought a HUNDRED YEAR LONG WAR with the English and survived. Napoleon was one fleet of ships short of OWNING all of Europe (Actually he DID own all of continental Europe, he just didn't have Britain) and some argue he gave us the modern way of war.
Yes France surrendered early into WWII however keep in mind they were still suffering after WWI AND that they suffered over 5 million casualties, mostly civilian, during the war. Also keep in mind the French Resistance numbered almost a million strong by war's end and were credited with weakening German influence in France sufficiently as to enable DDay to even take place.
France is 4th worldwide in military spending and maintains a nuclear arsenal of over 300 nuclear weapons.
It's time to drop this francophobe crap.

The Romans weren't a part of the American Civil war, the American/Mexican wars or the Texas revolution, so you sir have failed at life. Have a nice day
The symbol of his country was being used to mock him and imply that he doesn't belong here if he celebrates the culture of Mexico.
The white trash boys in the pickup truck weren't waving the flag in their faces to say we love you and your culture--they were driving around looking for trouble trying to provoke people... Asshole, bigots in a pickup.
If the cops weren't there, the white punks would have gotten the crap beat out of them, and deserved it. If the same white punk bigots had come upon an underage Mexican girl walking alone, they might have done what this type of ignorant trash does...
