The Inherent Contradiction of the French Foreign Legion



The French Foreign Legion is one of the great dilemmas of the military world.

The Foreign Legion is considered an elite force, yet it's made up of various misfits and adventurers from around the world. Made up of would-be adventurers and various individuals seeking a second chance at life, the Foreign Legion is the ultimate military luxury: a highly-skilled, highly-trained force that, for all intensive political purposes, is entirely expendable.

  1. The expression is "for all intents and purposes" not "intensive purposes" silly. Sheesh.

  2. Well, normally, yes.

    But not this time, no.

    If you watch the film, I'd say that the training speaks for itself -- intense in the pursuit of its purpose.

  3. LOL. Nice try.

    It would have been very uncharacteristic of you to admit that made a mistake.

  4. If you say so -- and you really are one to talk yourself, aren't you?

  5. Yes, as a matter of fact, I am.

  6. No. You aren't.

    If one really wanted to dig into the past for something to demonstrate how rarely you admit to a mistake, there's always that "number four" stupidity that you never owned up to.

    Or, there's this very post. I'd be willing to admit that maybe my choice of words was an ill-conceived attempt at borderline-poetic language. Maybe.

    But you pop by here and all you have to say about anything is this? Really? That's it? You've dropped by to nitpick my choice of words?

    I remember the last time you resorted to this kind of nonsense. You actually made yourself look really stupid.

    Get a hobby, or a life. I'll let you pick which.
