Grandiose claims out the arse like that sorta shoot the rest of your arguments in the shorts....
What about Waterloo regards,
And we were there many many years before 1962.
"The Vietnam War was the legacy of France's failure to suppress nationalist forces in Indochina as it struggled to restore its colonial dominion after World War II. Led by Ho Chi Minh, a Communist-dominated revolutionary movement-the Viet Minh-waged a political and military struggle for Vietnamese independence that frustrated the efforts of the French and resulted ultimately in their ouster from the region. Vietnam had gained its independence from France in 1954. The country was divided into North and South. The North had a communist government led by Ho Chi Minh. The South had an anti-communist government led by Ngo Dinh Diem."

The Fremch Foreign Legion is far from the current standard for Special Forces. Our own Special Operations Warriors from either our Army, Navy, Air Force or Marines would run circles around any of them. Also 22 SAS from the U.K. are just as good as our Special Operations Warriors.
P S S The French Foreign Legion is still the world standard for Special Forces. THey just do a better job of picking thier wars.[/QUOTE]

Help me understand why we should care what the other "militaries around the world" would think about "your assessment"....and where does your Love Jones for the French come from, Franco? Jean Lafitte?Yes, as Americans we are proud of our Special Forces.
But, many militaries around the world would disagree with your assessment.
You made the statement the French Foreign Legion was the World Standard, what is your experience to make such a statement?
Also every foreign Special Operations force of the many I have worked with envy our units and warriors who make up the unit. Which miltary and which country disagree with my assessment? Just wondering obviously you have some info I don't.
Yes, as Americans we are proud of our Special Forces.
