And what about chineese? (sic) As you seem to be full of prejudices about foreign people, can you confim us their reputation = hypocrital, stingy and dirty ? (sic)
Yes, we (and I speak for all Asians now, not just those of Chinese origin) are all of the above. And to make it clear, I don't have actually have prejudices against the French - a good number of my colleagues and friends are French, and I appreciate lots of things about France and French culture. Ironically, that you are allowed to live your useless life is something I admire about the French welfare state (although sometimes I think the concept is taken too far - the French Civil Service, for example, is stifling to academic advancement.) I was merely stating a fact. In the history of modern warfare, France has not been much of anything but a hindrance to its allies. There are exceptions dating back to the American War of Independence; but since then, Frenchmen have seemed capable only of defeating other Frenchmen. It *is* funny. You, on the other hand, and not just from this post, seem to subscribe to a number of rather viscious stereotypes, primarily about Asians and Americans. Makes one wonder.
