France, among history, has been a great country and in some ocasions, the very great country of its time... By the time of the 17th century, France was the leading country of Europe under the reign of Louis the 14th, and then, under the reign of Napoleon Bonaparte, who declared himself emperor of France, and settled France's domination over Europe ( a part from England, which was under total embargo from the continent). A big part of the political tensions between United States and France was the importance of Charles de Gaulle, general who then became president from 1958 to 1969. De Gaulle managed to make the french interests prevail on the international theater, quitting the OTAN military command or supporting arab countries at the beggining of the Near-East problems. France, today, suffers the crisis of being a "Close to the top country and not "The one". However, I'm french and i'm not frustated about my country not being the leader of the world. But a little thing remains pushing me to think that i'm french, a little better than the others. (but that's a pretty international feeling...)
As an sad example, Jean Marie le Pen, leader of the french nationalist party, uses symbols (such as speeches made on historical locations of the 1789's Revolution) to give his audience the rememberance of France's greatness and superiority (where, in his very own point of view, minorities were dealt with authority)

France is a country that fought side by side with Americans on American soil during the American war of independence. Also, the counrty that built and gave as a gift the greatest symbol of America, the Statue of Liberty.

A country where people work 35 hour weeks and have two months paid leave a year.

Is the world's 4th largest economy.

Is a country with strong cultural and traditional values.

Is a county with arguably the best food and drink in the world.

Provence

A country with second-to-none public systems - TGV (train), education, healthcare.

A country that smokes and drinks more wine than Britain and America and has a fraction of the heart disease and obesity rate.

A country full of charming, well-dressed people who do respond well when not approached by tactless English-speaking philistines.

A country full of beautiful architecture and art.
At least visit the place!

Don't knock it until you've tried it. I have been there two times, and my brother now has lived there for over a year. All the negative stereotypes are untrue, the people there are clean and friendly. And the positive stereotypes are true, they have a great culture, wine, food, etc. You can't say that France is a bad country unless you have firsthand experience. So to all of you rednecks, please, sell your trailer and visit this beautiful country so you can realize that you're just jealous of the French, you don't hate them.
Redneck- France is full of a bunch of smelly assholes!!!

Me- How would you know? You live in a trailer and watch CMT all day... get a life.

A country whose soldiers marched row by row into German machine gun fire in the beginning of World War 1. 500, 000 French soldiers died this way in The Great War. This is the same country that is ridiculed today for having a 'cowardly' military history.
God bless the French.

Very beautiful and nice country with a rich culture. I went to France and the stereotypes are untrue. The French are friendly and clean. Most are very chic and chill. A lot of ignorant Americans forget that the French gave us the of America: the Statue of Liberty (D'oh!). It's also a country that gave us troops in the revolution. Most French haters are also Bush supporters who haven't even been to France (most likely because they can't afford it)... why bash what you don't know?
Person 1: I hate France. It's full of smelly ugly pussys. F'ing traitors!

Person 2: You've never even been to France. How would you know? Why don't you step outside your trailer for some fresh air? Also, put down the Toby Keith CD!

Sexy, pretty, and often mischevious. Appears demure to those who don't know her well, Frances enjoys being naughty and makes those near to her want to kiss and lick every inch of her soft smooth skin. Funny and beautiful, many would never guess that she has a mouth like a trucker, and deviant sexual desires.
"Frances makes me want to tear off her clothes so that i can take here right here on my desk"
