Except if you think about it, stereotypes are half true.

The Germans have always been a tough, stubborn and industrially organized. Just so happened to make them a great country for conducting wars throughout history.

The French are a much more artistic and natural people. They own the language of romance and thus aren't as fierce as some other countries. Just compare the French and German languages. Which one is more guttural and tough? Which one is smoother and loose?

Arabic countries tend to be all Islamic. They take their religion very true to heart and are willing to defend it. It doesn't make them any different from the rest of the world, some of them might just be more susceptible to extreme measures due to their already extreme practices. Christian groups were much the same way around the time of the Crusades. They used the whole "slaughter the non believers" it didn't mean all Christian groups believed that, but the situation brought out extremists in their groups.

The USA has been a very wealthy and powerful country through history. It's been considered a superpower and thus its caused its people to have to worry less. When you can relax and not have to worry, you can enjoy the luxuries of life. Some might call it "living off the fat of life."

TL;DR I like stereotypical humor as it humbles us as people and makes us think about our possible faults. As long as its all in good taste.

Agreed on mostly all, except that america hasn't been a powerful nation through history as america was born less than 350 years ago.
And it was just because spanish and french governments helped just to piss of england.

Isn't France "the romance language" because it has Romantic roots. That is, Rome...

This could be some common misconception, but that's how I've been told it's been.

You would be correct sir/ma'am/other. It doesn't really have anything to do with 'romance' as in love, just because in early history, everyone in Rome spoke Latin. French is derived from Latin. Some other Romance languages are Spanish and Italian.
