Mass desertions in 1917, a complete collapse in 1940, attempts to form a breakaway state in Algeria in the 1960's, to be honest, the French army has a history in the last 100 years that can hardly be matched. However, the latest report on the French army and their active involvement in Rwanda 13 years ago makes everything that the French army have done before pale in to insignificance.
The report claims that the French army were involved in the mass rape of Tutsi women in Rwanda and actively armed, planned and trained those Hutu groups who set about the mass genocide of Tutsi people.
The French are a proud nation. Sometimes though you have to come down off your high horse and accept that your have done wrong. the evidence is that France accepts no responsibility for its abuses in Rwanda, indeed since the end of the civil war there the French have removed virtually all financial support from the country with Britain now acting as Rwanda's largest financial contributor.
French arrogance is no excuse for letting rapists and murderers exist in the French army.
