Having lived within swimming distance of France all my life, and the last 40 years popping back and forward, working in France and across Europe, I can safely say most people I know, including most of my friends and colleagues in France base the whole snootiness on the attitude of Parisiennes, and to be honest, that seems quite a fair stereotype.
The Parisiens have that reputation even amongst the rest of France !!
I guess this just goes to confirm my earlier statement that for many Americans (maybe British too, I have no idea) France has one city- Paris. I have actually had Americans ask me about how it is to live in the country of Paris!!
(I live in the south, six hours away from Paris)
How refreshing to see someone knows their history.Yes the French did provide the revolutionarys with much aid.And many people believe they did so just as you said.To weaken the British more than they cared about our revolution.

We English have been at constant war with them more of less fore the last 1000 years!. A "bit snooty" is putting is lightly.
However, if it wasn't for the Frogs you yanks would all still be British Citizens. And I am sure they only did that just to annoy us!!
Enente-cordiale! My ARSE!

Americans are, naive, ignorant, fat, lazy, unproductive, undereducated, oh yeah and the envy of the rest of this heap of sh*t we call the modern world. We get it there is a large percentage of the world who envy us, and hate us. I get it. However I myself am damn glad to have been born and raised in the USA despite all of it's inadequacies! Can't piss me off cause I hold all human beings in contempt whomever they are and wherever they come from.

I think only a few places like India and some eastern countries envy you guys.
I think the rest of the world is sick to death of your crap.

I kind of envy the european countries...they've had their place as number one, and well lost it and have settled down, seemingly content with being what they are, and watching their young offspring make a fool of themselves while wasting their resources trying to hold the reigns of power over the whole world....
