The French Army is falling apart

According to documents leaked to the French press, half of France's military equipment is busted and inoperable, and most of the rest is held together with duct tape. Less than half of its Puma helicopters, 37 per cent of its Lynx choppers and 33 per cent of its Super Frelon models – built 40 years ago – are in a fit state to fly, according to documents seen by Le Parisien newspaper.

Two thirds of France's Mirage F1 reconnaissance jets are unusable at present.

And yes morons....I know the video is Canadian....but its funny, so its being used to illustrate my point.
