Again, without France, it's likely America wouldn't have won the war of independence in the 18th century, maybe not at all. I just find it quite ironic that Americans continue to say France are pussies etc.

Its easy to look back at history and comment and judge people decisions and mistakes. But I hope most people know that at the time it was different, they didnt know if they were going to win or lose. Or if their people were going to get wiped out. Same goes for the "Well if this happened..." or "Without _____" or all those other statements, you cant know what would have happened if someone did something else. So your statement about without france we would of lost, do you know that 100%? of course not, but should we judge every mistake everyone in history has ever made? Of course not.

I hear that stereotype more often here in germany than in the US

I've never heard it here in Ireland, but again, France at least tried to help us with our ongoing battles with Britain in the past too.

Stereotype? You used the wrong word there that makes no sense. And it is true anyway, most of the fighting in that war was done in india, europe and the open ocean against the french, spanish and dutch. If
America was alone they would have lost for sure.

Yes, false cliche might be more appropriate.
If anyone was alone in WW2 they would have lost for sure. Everyone did their part. I don't see why people discuss about that.

I think it's pretty hypocritical that they have Captain America saying this. The joke landed, but in a different issue he talks about how he saw french soldiers sacrificing themselves in WWII and hates when americans call them cowards.
