Put it this way, if it wasn't for the brutal Russian winters, they'd all be French.

If the German's won the battle with Russia in the 20th century, they would have still lost WW2, and Russia would still be Russia.

If Napoleon conquered Russia in 1812 and made it part of France, then Russia would never have been on the side of Germany before Hitler turned on them, and Hitler probably would have played things differently all together. If he had conquered Russia which included France, we would still have won and made Germany give it back. France is still France today, not Germany. So France which included Russia would still be France today.

Bottom line, the only war France has won since Napolean was emperor was the French revolution. They also lost that war. If the Russian winters weren't so brutal, European history and global history, would be entirely different over last 200 years, and Russia would be French.

LOL ... the cheese eating surrender monkeys teach that they won WWII with the help of the british and americans.

I don't think you can extrapolate anything beyond the French attacking Russia that it was a flawed plan ... and no ferkin way would the french have occupied / annexed russia for 100 years until WW1 ...

I find waders and a stick come in handy for testing water depth prior to crossing, not my entire truck.

He's russian, so maybe checking depth by viewing river bottom out of passenger window made sense at time. Don't be so judgemental!

That was pretty disturbing. Particularly the 4 year old screaming for his life at the end.

You all should give the France a little more respect. They did help us beat the British during the revolutionary war. So thanks to France that we don't speak the Queens English.
