SF= Special Forces= Army
SOF= Special Operation Forces= Everone else

No disrespect Senior Chief, but, and PJ can attest to this I'm sure, SF types get very touchy about the use of their name.

What names have I been using that would make you post that?

Seals? Green Berets? Rangers? Those are common terms. The people I know that serve in that capacity have not been referenced here other than the fact that I know them.

BTW, when they wear their uniforms (class A) they have their name tag as well as their designator. The Navy Seal is very hard to miss.

I wouldn't get into that mentality, but what do I know. What's the phrase, "The last easy day was yesterday?"

I'm no fan of France, but I felt this was really reaching for respectability.
Pure was a poor choice of words, but in the end, he was right. The French spoken in Quebec is quite similar to the French spoken in France 300 years ago, whereas Parisian French has changed and adopted words from many different sources. As for your observation about how French Canada sucks, perhaps you would appreciate it a lot more if you made an effort to learn the language. As it is, I live there, and I have noticed that it is mostly the tourists from Oklahoma that make stupid comments like that. Must be the lack of a useful education system....

If you don't like it, then be a bit more circumspect in how you state your opinions.

Look whos talking. "Lack of a useful education system." Its comments like that which start a flame war. If you are going to correct someone, be mature about it.

And to speak of foreigners making uneducated comments, I'm sure you've all seen those videos from Canadian television where their film crews come down here and make it look like all Americans are ignorant by asking a few some questions.
