Re: To sum it all up

"Errrr France isn't a full member of NATO/OTAN. DeGaulle made sure of that."

As far as I'm aware, France joined NATO as a full member when the organisation was founded in 1949. In 1966 De Gaulle withdrew the country from the integrated military structure but remaining a member of the political side of things. In the 1990s France became more involved in NATO again and has participated fully in the organisation since 2009.
