if any french guy has the nerve to make a comment about the american way of life, you can be sure that the first word that comes out of the american's mouth is related to WW2, and how the americans saved the french. But you americans forget that france fought beside you in your independence war against Britain. The problem with america is that it regards itself as the new roman empire... the first universal empire in history. And if you ask me, the demise of america, if it is going to come, it will come from inside it's own state.
