The French: Can You Trust Them?

Reader comment on item: [Appeasement Explains] Why Europe Balks

Submitted by Max Malo (United States), Jan 28, 2003 at 14:09

I lived in Germany from 1979 until 1999. I visited most of the countries in Europe. The French are the snobbiest of all the Europeans toward Americans and the United States of America. ...

To see Gehard Schroeder standing next to Chirac and smiling really ticks me off. Germany is an economic power house today because while the American taxpayers were paying for their national defense, they were spending all their monies building their economy. So much for being grateful.

The Germans and the French are suffering from "SELECTIVE AMNESIA! and somebody needs to ... wake them up before its too late!!
