An english man inveted the metric system
John Wilkins (1614 - 1672)
See : Christian Hugens (Dutch scientifique 1656. ..see : the pendule clock)
See: the "age of enlightment"
See: Cogit ergo sum (Gomez Périra, 1554)
A plagiat copy from René Descartes (1596 - 1650) "je suis donc je pense"....the school of rationsionimse
In the mean time, Orthodox Celts thought there was, " whisky in the jaro", but by the time they realised. ...Scottish highlanders drank the skelp
Btw, the art of distillerie, was inveted by the Persans ...principipaly for flowers and Par Fume (we just improved it
Just like the toilette (inveted by Djelko Pavelcivic, a Serbe, 1715)
The following day, Ally McCoist decided to put a hole in the seat

From recent recollections on the forum it’s clear that there is a certain air of superiority amongst some of the Anglo EVs, even the guy on YouTube littlest Viking. Often comments are thrown around about incompetence of NCOs and such, also with regards to lack of quality of other legionnaires from other corners of the globe. That's the complete wrong mentality and instructors, officers and NCOs are going to spot that from a mile away and will definitely make life difficult for you to knock you down a peg or two.

You volunteer for the Legion, nobody forces you to go there and promises you are going to be some special forces door kicker rambo wannabe. It was your decision to go, the least you can do is finish your contract and stop slamming an institution because you failed to adapt.

I think what The Viking couldn't understand was that a bunch of people coming from all walks of life and speaking different languages are not going to learn more than the basics in instruction. You will have ex-para Brits training with ex-road sweeper Brits and ex-US airborn (like the guy we did instruction with -Nick Lake :eek:: catastrophe! ) with ex-hole diggers, like The Fox. No-one speaking French and learning different weapons and different tactics.

As GSP points out The Viking was kicked out of the Canadian Army for drug and alcohol abuse. In Each video he would add a Viking artifact, shield, wood axe... all that was missing was an ox's corn full of conquered enemy's spilled blood. And he would also be proudly showing his 4 RE sweatshirt and also the very symbol that represents the legion, the kepi blanc..

Instead of saying that he couldn't hack it, he would put down all the NCOs and the trainging. To all those who want to join the legion, remember the most expensive Ming Dynasty vase started out as a lump of clay. The last phrase is copy writ Joe Cosgrove.::cool:

To be considered as a semi decent legionnaire. ..you need a minimum of 3 to 4 years service
Any comments from some one less and who focalises on his mothers tongue to judge others. ...is obvisouly an Xenephobe, arrogant self centered kunt.

What about Americans that haven't done any military service but they have any special ability like a PH.D or a very good dominion of the French?

I've read a book from a bulgarian guy that was a leggionaire in the 90's and in his platoon there was an American that was teacher of Literature on a some recognized USA University and he spoke French like a native one

I guess that certain - "cretin" ( haha I wrote this by mistake, but fits so well so I wouldn't change it) group of people here don't care about him (good American guy) and men similar to him. Many of "desperate" westerners here love fact that if they get rejected there would be someone (something) to put blame on. Of course (according to them) their role in all process is minimal. It's all because they (FFL) hate Americans and Brits and the love Eastern Europeans. In particular Russians. Closer to mother Russia = more chances for getting in . Yeap, sorry guys FFL today it's runned by bloody communists ! (Fact that there is no any official communist state in the world is totally unimportant) :)

Those kind of people consider me to be communist too (and there is greens among them). They would be very surprised by fact that Belgrade Is significantly closer to London (not to mention Paris) than it is to Moscow. Bu hey ... we always learning. ;)

But who the F I am to say anything to anyone before doing same stuff by myself?

Just don't hate me guys. Just ... this forum is occupied by Mafia Anglaise so we have most Info on them. But I have to say than Americans and Englishmen or doing worse than others form Anglo-mafia.

Correct if I'm wrong, but that is the impression I got during my time (2y) on this forum. Of Course I'm not a Legionnaire to give some definite judgement about that subject still I know thing are two.

There is many Americans (UK) who serve in FFL as great soldiers, but we don't talk about them. We talk about majority of them who making harder for others coming from US,UK to join.

One can take this personally and on national basis ... isn't, I'm just speaking from my heart.

I'm going to quote www.legion-recrute.com in french, since it is the more accurate than the other.

"
L'avancement se fait selon le mérite. Tout légionnaire peut faire carrière, non par les diplômes scolaires ou professionnels acquis dans le civil, mais grâce aux examens militaires ou techniques réussis au cours des contrats successifs.

  • Tous les sous-officiers de la Légion commencent leur carrière comme simple légionnaire.
  • Taux d'encadrement actuel : 1 S/OFF pour 4 légionnaires.
  • Sur 4 légionnaires qui s'engagent aujourd'hui, l'un d'entre eux deviendra sous-officier."
That should answer your question.

I hope is Ok that i speak in spanish to Danius98.

Danius98 vi tu post en el cual contaste tu experiencia militar en Colombia y como no pudiste ingresar porque tuviste problemas con el estrés y te pusieron en una institución mental.

La realidad es que la vida militar en cualquier País, sea Colombia, Francia, USA, Sud Africa,etc es que es una vida donde vas a estar en muchas situaciones donde vas a tener que saber manejar tu estrés. No necesariamente porque vaya a una zona de combate, si no por las labores diarias que puedas tener. Superiores que te van exigir más y más, pocas horas de sueños, turnos de guardias que pueden ser desgastantes.

La vida Militar en si requiere cierto sacrificio y tener la capacidad mental para poder soportar el mismo.

Si ya sabes que tienes problemas para manejar el estrés me replantearía, si vale la pena seguir una carrea militar o policial. Desgraciadamente mucha gente esto no lo hizo y termina en Suicidios.

GSP, I know it comes from the official legion site, but I'd say someone has got their maths mixed up. 1 Cpl for every 4 legionnaires would be more accurate.

Out of 4 legionnaires who join today (assuming that the quota starts after completion of basic training) will become a Sous-off? I would say in my humble opinion that the calculation would be better to say: Out of 4 legs. joining today, 1 will continue after his 5 years, who will then probably will go on to be a sous-off.

It has to be remembered that to become a Cpl it will take a couple of years, let's say 2 -2.5 years. At the very least 1 year as a Cpl, most likely 2. That is 4- 4.5 years. Then the person will be asked to sign a new contract before being sent on his 4 month course.

Your contract is for 5 years. A lot respect that contract and then move on to do other things.

Nationality is the stupidest thing man has ever inveted ...followed by religion, politics, diplômés, carears and the minimum wage
For me, joining the Legion was an oppertunity to be fed, clothed and given a bed with some pocket money throwning in
Scotland is just a vague souvenir and the family too
Américains are considered loud mouth and arrogant, ignorant fuds, some say
Not me and my expérience , so so
Wait till you meet the French
If you really want to join the Legion
Put aside, your fake patriotism and beliefs
When and if you join the Legion
It is because you was able to do 7 pull ups and score well in Luc Léger
A crédible story to tell and cut the extrême bull shit beliefs out of your système
As a new recruit
You are just a matricule / number
1 of many and it is up to the individual to make his différence
Take it from there

I agree about nationality. To add, national states are relatively new idea. They are formed in this shape only during Napoleonic wars. I think that idea slowly losing meaning. In 50s it was easy to find young men who will go to war for their country only because of ideology and patriotism. Today, not so much. Armys becoming professional and warriors are paid. (which is normal thing to do)

Why minimum wage Le petite? If we don't have that some people would work for next to nothing, Maybe not being able to pay for food. Is that way society should go? I don't thinks. Little bit of socialism has to exist, too much of it and you have failed state.
