    Yes, look up Napolean and Joan of Arc.
    No, US has invested too much, and vice versa.
    No, thats just freedom of speech ( I dislike how there is no national language in the US but English has become adopted as it, along with some debate as to make it a national language, thus eliminating the papers that come in both Spanish and English or the papers that come in both Mandarin and English and creating just English papers.) Along with the fact that there are many immigrants that cannot speak the language of the nation untill a months have passed and that they have learned the language.

    Napoleon lost in the end and Joan of Arc was killed by the English.

    Also, there's the issue of human rights, which is why China now hates us.

    Immigrants should learn the damn language. Okay, I'm going to shut up before I piss someone off (like I did to my immigrant friends. Not my fault they hate me. *shrugs*).

    Napolean still had military victories when he was winning, France won in the end after Joan was burned, oh yeah I forgot about World War One.

    Yes China hates US, but they can't do anything about it, US and China are both major trading partners and they can't screw the other without screwing themselves economically.

    Immigrants who have fled from a war-torn country can't just sit down and learn the national language as they please. It's better for them to come here first and then learn it than them learning it first and coming here when theres a good chance that they'll be killed in their country. Also the US doesn't have a national language so any language works, English is just the most commonly used language in the US.

    The part of my family that immigrated here DID learn English, so yeah, I'm saying that to them. =P

    France itself lost WWI, it got invaded. Napoleon lost IN THE END. Come on, it's the joke. >_>

    Well, Canada has two national languages.

    France did get invaded WWI, but with the help of the Americans, they won in the end. Napolean did win a few of the wars. He lost in the 100 Days War and The War of the Sixth Coalition. And I know about the joke, but you said it was a serious topic, so I took it seriously.

    Napoleon was Corsican, he doesn't count.

    Joan of Arc was a woman. France does not have women. Therefore, she doesn't count.

    Argh, don't bring up wars and politics. In the past, whenever those were brought up, the entire forum was erupt into massive arguments, religious and non religious people everywhere yelling, jumping, and screaming.

    not that that's bad or anything, but it seriously ruined relationships for many members

    thats just my two cents

    havent got much of anything to suggest, i guess the spam thread would be out of the question. and i honestly have gotten so used to it i dont care anymore

    War. War Never Changes.

    It's not just in the past, it's still going on in that way. It's just that those conversations tend to be more serious and intelligent than almost anything else in the forum, so people enjoy having them around these days.
