"Brief course on international and ... patriotic strategy: without worrying ourselves about our treaties, let's invade Belgium traitorously." (I think.)

 

The pun resides in the difference between trait- and traît- in the original (i, î).

I only hope I'm right! On second thoughts "we invade" is probably better - less slangy.
