So about that time when France fought Britain for 116 years...
Or when Napoleon conquered most of Europe?
Or when France and Britain fought Spain?
Or when France, Prussia and Spain fought Austria, Britain, and Hungary?
Or when France helped America gain indepenance?
How about the battle of Lechfeld which began one of the biggest events in European history?

Actually, it was an army led by King Otto of Saxony who considering himself to be the successor of the old empire of Chammagne, and frew his armies from many places including France.

So about how all Americans are fat...
Or how all Welsh **** sheep?
Or how Australians are upside down?
Or how all Germans are Nazis?
Or how all Russians are constantly drunk on vodka?
How about the tentacle porn that made Japanese porn famous?

It's not about historical accuracy, it's about extending a common joke.

I think there are better stereotypes of Germans than Nazi.
Not all America are terror suspect abusing soldiers, and very few of Germans were nazis and knew, or approved of, nazi ideals.

I have been to many places in Europe, and Germans are genuinely the nicest people I've met on my travels (Austrians are another matter). But they're still sausage eating, lederhousen wearing, Italian *******, beer drinking engineers.

Yep all those jokes are common worldwide, surrenders jokes are just american.

Few years ago, I remember when people thought that we didn't shower or that our only alimentation was cheese. You know, those clichés are not more funny but at least its global not coming from buthurted bitches that hate us because we didn't want to fight in Iraq or whatever.

We're not against jokes, we're against stupidity.

Plus OP was a faggot since none of this riffles are from french manufacture.

So... you're angry that the Americans stereotype the French because France didn't participate in a war?

Sounds like you're stereotyping yourself.

Even if Americans began it, the joke is now global. I'm fairly sure some European (French or British most likely) began the Americans are fat jokes. Does that mean I get all pissy about French and British people laughing at it? No.

You may think the jokes are stupid--and that's fine; that does not mean others don't find them amusing. It's just selfish for you to think you're the sole authority on what is or is not amusing.

That is not the point my friend, a joke is funny when people don't act like they know the history.    
In American being fat joke, it's just a fact, I don't want to be mean since I know all the american aren't, but still there is no need of political context, geopolitic, no need of references to history you have to know to understand the situation.   
   
As I said like a thousand ******* time, I'm not against those joke, actually quite often I'm laughing, what get me upset is the fact that some people not even aware of the history thinks that it's all true. To them the war began, the day after we surrendered and flag our arms like nazis, hailing for Hitler and burning jews. No it isn't true.   
The other thing is that american still don't get that we were closest to the conflict than they did. Finaly they are calling us pussies when some of them don't even know about their own history.   
   
No really, I have nothing against the joke, I just have something about the idiots. Sorry to hate living in a world of stupidity. Still I like to talk with american when they have good points.

Considering that the manufacturers of the clothing his men wore,
and that they got stuck in Russia during the winter, they did a damn good job.

Hahaha man you don't know a thing about our army, we have an army just check your information before saying this kind of ********.

The Legion was at first a branch (and it still is) of the Armée de Terre, which was composed of soldiers from the colonies that French settled. Then it turns to a way for some people who have no nation to immigrate ; when you enter the Legion you have no more name you're just a soldier.

Source ? My parents are in the Air Army, as much as my Sister and my Brother in law, so yeah there is an army and there is 3 branches :

-Armée de Terre (for soil operations)
-Armée de l'Air (for aerian operations)
-Marine (for the seas operation)

Also we have the nuclear bomb.

You faggot.

You being an ignorant human being give a bad impression of the people in your country, this is how stereotypes are made, with a hint of truth.And for the record i have absolutely nothing against Americans however i do have something against you. You're an asshat. an asshat who thinks he is above others because of the country he was born in. You're a self entitled **** oh and you weren't the only ones who played a part in making the atom bomb.

Guy we are going to imply you're an American since you're arrogant as ****. We can talk about pussifying since you modify the Isolationist law into the Vanderberg resolution after the World War II, you think you saved your ass, man you did, well done, we saved yours twice. Because yes your independance is thanks to us since your ancestor was just a bunch of farmer not even able to use a gun properly or in the other way, the guys who had been beaten by the farmers not even able to use a gun properly thanks to the French. You're welcome. Then without the NATO oh man you would have been screwed up. We haven't bitching to create a ******* alliance with you after the second world war, you did. You know at the begining of its history, British Americans were just pussies running off of their country because they were ******* scared of pretty everything. You know that in some words you talked about the fact that being stupid was genetic, I think it is the same with the fact that you are pussies, guys, really "OMFG 4 guys in a plane killed 3000 people in 2 towers on 9/11, lets do a war, lets call all the members NATO to do this !" and then you manage to call us "Pussies when we lost 330 000 civilians before you ******** took the time to give some help, 330 000 civilians as we were surrenders do you even imagine you stupid asshole. You lost 1700 civilians during this war.

Also, I already fight with my fist with an american, without a gun you are nothing, even drunk you can't even manage to punch someone properly. Bitches.

As I said I have nothing against American people, in fact I like most of those I met (And I met some) but I hate the people coming here, telling that we are pussies and throw some ****** facts acting like they know history when in fact they don't.

I've learn a bit from American history, this is why I return what people think, because I know.

But I love you good sir. I really do when people are not mean to me.
