...you can replace French with Uhmerican anywhere in this thread, and it's just as "true" and just as funny.
Now That's diplomacy
Preferably looking like monuments of course, so as to avoid any confusion.
ummmmm, it IS a Dunce cap.
World War II was another story altogether. French troops in North Africa inflicted major causualties on British and American troops before deciding "Oops! Perhaps we should switch sides!" Some French generals refused to serve alongside former Vichy generals. Can't say as I blame them. (See America's Forgotten Army, The True Story of the U.S. Seventh Army in WWII - And an Unknown Battle That Changed History by Charles Whiting)
When DeGaulle addressed his people after the liberation of Paris he gave no credit to the American and British forces for that liberation, making it appear that French forces alone drove the Nazis out of Paris.
William wrote: . . .I have never been to France and I only know one person born there. She is a very nice person and I have seen no arrogance in her. But then, she has lived in the United States for at least 10 years. I have had several friends and acquaintances who have been to France and they are almost unanimous in their opinion that the French are some of the most unfriendly people in the world.
This is also the opinion of friends who have experience with the Quebecois, who apparently believe that Quebec is a province of France, not Canada.
