<br />Monsieur’s it seems to me to be pointless trying to get the better on each other for it is true that the old Prussian army was beaten badly in 1806 and the only brave man that Prussia had was its Queen. But it is also true that the new Prussian /German Armée did damage to the Emperor later. Let say that this is a battle between two ideas one was empire and the other nationalism! Both are losers in this for no country can say that there ideals last. Both led to the two great world wars and countless death. The dead head of the Prussians is what they truly are.

<br />Yes, I have asked myself this question many times: Why join Prussia?

Their mouthpiece, a mad king from Bavaria.

Their men march around like martinets with sergeants that beat them with canes.

Their food always tastes like hot dogs. Now hot dogs are fine for the horse races but after awhile ... well they get old!

And their generals - old men that have seen better days.

Now France!!! Ah France. Wonderful France with its lovely chateaus and fountains and beautiful countryside. Officers that treat you with respect. And the gracious lifestyle. Food offered to you from different homes all of the time. Northern Italy, Bavaria, Poland.

Why get beat up for Prussia when you can rule and reign like a small prince?

<br />Monsieur’s I have given the idea much though and that in this club the only way to prove who the better is, is to field a multi -national army of club members to see who indeed has the bragging rights ! An that would put an end to this silly thing! I call on the French Command to Field an Armee to tack on all comers

<br />Yes I agree with Anton it's not silly to be silly. And silly remarks are not silly at all from my perspective.

Cliff we are just having some banter and fun. Part of the point of the tavern is to wind each other up. It does not have to end in a fight every time.
