This is something i wanted to know all the time...

 

As it occured to me, there is a negative opinion of Americans towards the French.

 

Here in the forum, in movies, in jokes and anecdotes.

 

I really do not know why this is the case. And i don't believe they really dislike french at all, since they had no negative history such as the UK or Germany with France .

 

Anyone can explain this...

What about the love hate relationship with France and the rest of the world.

Whilst the evidence given so far provides evidence of the symptoms I don't think it identifies the underlying illness. I think it goes right back to the cultural and political divide between the UK an

The Americans have an impression that the French surrender very quickly.

 

The Americans do not understand that Europeans fight for the oppressed, and those who they have treaties with, whether they are attacked or not.

 

The US has always been a bit of a reluctant ally, historically they only look after their own interests.

That is actually the same question, as most problems seem to be with USA or UK. (But the UK one is special in itself and another topic)

MM;

 

Guenther's post said the States, not the UK/ And I am sure behind closed doors both the French and the White House use some 4 letter words in regards to each other. But again as I read my post I said publicly I do not know of nay issue we have with the French. You can count the freedom fry if you like MM but really what country does not have something against another. But usually its nothing major and in fact it appears normal to one and all.
