The 300 days of fighting in northeast France were one of the bloodiest battles of the war, claiming more than 300,000 lives before France emerged victorious. Read full article

    And a thinly veiled threat from them to the rest of the flock,

    these two are the biggest instigators of a united states of Europe,

    some say, it will collapse long before then, Greece another bailout given , Italy the banks are collapsing , Spain and the rest of the pigs are desperate,

    some even say that France is on the brink.

    VOTE LEAVE.

    Look at the attitude, ideology, and language of the two ANGLOS above.

    Let's do some slight replacement:

    The Untermensch Hollande come to take orders from the Kike Merkel

    And this is progress?

    Not to me.

    Sig Heil!

    It's the 1930s all over again, except this time the Reich's capital is Londinium, and the deluded masses have fallen for the fallacy of Anglo Supremacism.

    Hollande and Merkel risk becoming the next Chamberlains if they don't stop the cancer that right now is still safely contained to a remote section in the southeast of a small island located in the northwestern corner of of the western end of the western peninsula of the Eurasian landmass.

    Crush Britain to pieces now, free Scotland and Wales, and raize England to powder.

    Your grasp of history is piss poor. For example in the 1930's the German state was expansionist..invading and subjugating it's neighbours.
    The UK ....or those that favour a Brexit....want a retrenchment back to individual states but with friendly relations with other countries.
    You are employed by RT, aren't you, as you espouse their version of the truth...the“truth” being presently unknown in Russia.
    Free Scotland and Wales ? What the **** do you know about this....obviously nothing. No one is holding either country into the UK against their will.
    We were given a free vote on the subject last year and the vote was to continue the Union which has served ALL Britain well since it's inception.
    GROW UP AND DROP YOUR CHILDISH FANTASIES!
