wait..aren't these the charming diverse people who promote peace through their religion.?

It's a safe bet all large cities have these problems,but Islamic thugs such as these need a good dose of CS with nightsticks to keep 'em in line.

I'll bet 'Le French police came back and took care of biz.

Typical French, always in retreat.

The odd thing about this thread is that prior to 9/11 the fact that they might be Muslim probably wouldn't factor into the conversation at all, and most people would only notice that they were all black guys.

LOL... As Patton said, I'd rather have a German division in front of me than a French division behind me.

All kidding aside ... while the French have suffered from the lack of general martial leadership, the average French soldier should not be taken lightly.

Well, you know, since Clovis, Martel, and Charlemagne, anyway, when they SAVED WESTERN CIVILIZATION FROM THE MUSLIMS.

Occasionally a thought wanders through my head and it serves you right for reading LTUP and having to share it.

Since 1775 the US and France have been involved in various military actions.
So what's the score?
I don't know if we should count civilians killed as that is generally a bad thing so how about looking at enemy combatants killed or wounded to the point of inaction by each sides Uniformed Forces.
The US got off to a quick start with the War of Independence but France soon surged ahead with Napoleon. Then you have the various wars in Europe between France and everybody. WW1 saw the French chalk up over 1 million Germans. The US must have begun catching up with WW2 but I'm not sure if they actually overtook at this point. Someone would have to run the numbers.
Korea and Vietnam must put the US ahead but I'm interested to know at which point they did.

edit - US Civil War casualties count also.

No it isn't, it may every well be the most ethnicly diverse nation in the world, but it has only one culture, and that is uniquely American.

Absolute rubbish Moe

Come ON now - you're being very disengenuous to even suggest that - Chinatown Manhatten is not the same as Paris Texas, which isn't a bit like downtown LA and so on.

There is so much cultural diversity in the USA as to beggar belief that you can claim otherwise - from food and housing to religious practices and language.

MULTI = several - more than one etc

CULTURE = Evolved human capacity to classify and represent experiences with symbols, and to act imaginatively and creatively
