    not just a french citizenship, they give you a entirely new identity that you keep even after you get out

    They will still take you if you served your time, but not if you are on the run

    yeah, i was interested for a while. then i saw that 10 episode special on the military channel or something. fuck running around in the desert like that. i mean, yeah, i'd be willing to go to iraq for a year, but at least there you have amenities. these legionnaires are in bfe gettin the shit beat out of them.

    no thanks.

    That wasn't the real legionaire training ( this is assuming we are both talking about the documentary with the guy from Man vs wild) That is some special course the legionaires give to the older crowd. Those guys don't even get to wear the white hats they get at the end
