Psycho-Dolphin Runs Amok Off French Coast... Seriously
France to surrender within the hour?

This interesting little story from the Sydney Morning Herald that explains much.

An enraged dolphin has been terrorising the French Atlantic coast for several weeks, attacking boats and knocking fishermen into the sea. "He's like a mad dog," said Henri Le Lay, president of the association of fishermen and yachtsmen of the port of Brezellec, in Brittany. Two fishermen were knocked into the sea after the dolphin overturned their boat.

The dolphin, named Jean Floch, has destroyed rowboats, overturned open boats, flooded engines and twisted mooring lines.

But experts say that he must have been excluded from his group recently to have turned so violent. According to Sami Hassani, of the Oceanapolis Department of Sea Mammals, "because of their dominant personalities and their sexual maturity, males could become dangerous."

Ahhh.... Does this explain why the safest place to be when near a French rifleman is directly in front of him? Or does this explain France's history of getting their collective asses kicked by anything and everything that's kicked sand in their faces.

In the meantime, is there any truth to the rumor that France will capitulate to said psycho-dolphin, or at least collaborez avec le dauphin ennemi?

The French get a bum rap from Americans who accuse the French of doing nothing more than pursuing a foreign policy that is not in accordance with American foreign policy.

Recall that it was largely because of French military and naval assistance that the US exists as an independent political entity.

Charles Martel (the man who stopped the Moorish invasion of Christendom) and his grandson Charlemagne (the first emperor of the resurrected western Roman Empire [the Frankish Holy Roman Empire]) were French. (Well, they were Germanic Franks, which isnt quite the same thing; but I digress...). Without them, Western Europe would've become a Saracen colony. (Too bad they're not here today: there would be no Arabs in Europe.)

Of more contemporary importance, Abp. Marcel Lefebvre was French. Without him, Catholic tradition might have become officially extinct.

I attribute the poor contemporary military performance of the French armed forces to two factors:

(1) Most Frenchmen really arent French (i.e., Frankish) Men (i.e., not just male human beings) anymore;

(2) Most of the time, the French are fighting the Germans. Nobody wins against the Germans unless you gang up on them. ;-)

Anyhow, I dont have anything against the French, per se, although I think they are foolish for having apostacised from the Faith and for having allowed massive amounts of third world immigration to occur within their sovereign territory.

Maybe they'll learn before it is too late. Maybe it is already too late for them.

One thing is certain: irate dolphins are the least of their concerns!

Actually, Gaufridus old boy, a more recent "saviour" of Europe would be Jan Sobieski of Poland in 1683. By kicking the Turks away from Vienna, he saved Europe from the ignominy of having to bang their heads on the floor five times daily. While Martel, the Hammer, was important, the job was not completed and many more battles had to be fought. Eternal vigilance, indeed.

Jan Sobieski of Poland was quite the man. In his company, I would place Duke John of Lepanto fame and Jan Hunyadi of Belgrade (Nandorfehevar, in Hungarian).

VSC brought up Don Pelayo of Spain, who kicked off the Reconquista of Iberia which took something like 700 years. Another indomitable Christian warrior.

Christendom needs more actual warriors as well as intellectuals.
