A short Frenchman, fresh from the conquest of a hot Italian wife, has gone on to campaign in the middle east this weekend.
'It eez true' said the General, who immediately decided to drop the comedy franglais. 'I watched the British with envy as they romped powerfully about the sands. But now I have her, I am strong, and they are weak. Ne te lave pas Carla, J'arrive!'
Meanwhile the British denied defence cuts had impacted their policy in the region. 'Ok we've had to rename the Typhoon fighter "Southwesterly 5 to 7, occasionally gale 8"' said a spokesman, 'but our effectiveness continues to be Moderate or Good, occasionally Poor.'
