In fact, almost all your posts are based on Wiki, however you do not quote this source openly. I remember the episode from above thread that you had to check Google what the “long Range Desert Patrol” was. But you have posed as an expert in desert warfare. Now you are (with help of Wiki articles) expert on Battle of France
Amazing as it may sound (ostensibly for you) any article and piece of information (Wiki or not) is as valid as its primary sources; period

All what was stated by yours truly was that anyone would have expected from any purportedly learned ultrahypernationalistic fan of the Polish army to be aware of something more than just the elementary wiki that naturally everyone would have already consulted

I'm sorry if the bar of my expectations was simply too high...

Answer my previous questions, if you do not mind. But perhaps they are to dificoult for you to answer? So you concentrate on personal attack. Go on,this is your usual tactic if you run out of arguments.
Also, you could elaborate little bit more on your post 88.
Concentrate especially on Gen. Weygand "huge contribution" to WWII

It's interesting that the huge French contribution for this war may be finally acknowledged after so many years of denying the merits of General Weygand.

This poor strategy of wasting time by accusing other posters of your own faults and hypernationalistic immaturity is hardly helpful.

Just remember that the question on Monsieur Weygand here was mine, not yours.

It is you who has been utterly unable to share with us any source aside of the elementary and in this case poorly sourced wiki-article to back whatever on Earth may you think about this issue.

Please don't make us waste any more time, Ed: do you have any relevant hard evidence to share with us on this issue or not?

It was not a question, it was a statement. so elaborate on it or. are you afraid to expose your ignorance on this subject?.It is my Thread, not yours and you for long time tried to derail it. So show samthing constructive and elaborate more about your post 88 regarding Gen Weygand's merits and huge contribution to the outcame of WWII.
To much tequila and Margaritas, I believe.

For elementary English orthography? Probably.

Should we really state it again & again?

Ad hominems couldn't be any stronger evidence of the deepest ignorance.
Such easy rule of thumb never ever fails

Because I don't require it, of course; I would simply consider extremely coward to try to hide any potential limitation behind insults or ad hominems.

Just IMHO, of course.

Now, just not to derail this nice thread any more, any other question, this time even potentially related to the OP?

Enough. It would be a pity to have to move this thread into the Chamber or close it down because the two of you can't stop attacking each other.
