I wish you would. Yeah so, moving on:

AzHBe aware that the French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from RUN to HIDE. The only two higher levels in France are Surrender and Collaborate. The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France's white flag factory, effectively paralysing their military capability.

It's not only the French that are on a heightened level of alert, the Italians have increased their alert level from "shout loudly and excitedly" to "elaborate military posturing". Two more levels remain, "ineffective combat operations" and "change sides".

The Germans also increased their alert state from "disdainful arrogance" to "dress in uniform and sing marching songs". They have two higher levels, "invade a neighbour" and "lose".

Seeing this reaction in continental Europe the Americans have gone from "isolationism" to "find somewhere else in the middle east ripe for regime change". Their remaining higher alert states are "take on the world" and "ask the British for help".

Finally here in GB we've gone from "pretend nothing's happening" to "make another cup of tea". Our higher levels are "remain resolutely cheerful" and "win".

What exactly are the instances of major French surrenders? I know of WW2 of course. Indochina could be another I suppose. Are there any others or is that whole stereotype mostly based on WW2?

Funny, though the whole stereotype image of France and it being bashed into the ground is getting very old. I miss the Netherlands and "try to stay neutral" though, we did it in ww1, tried it in ww2 and with Iraq neigher we officially fully suported it nor were against it... :uhm:
