France continues its long tradition of appointing ambassadors to the US who hate America and don't know anything about our history.
If France had any sense of honor, it would fire this ambassador. For him to say that on today of all days?
Astonishing. A man with no character whatsoever...

Good article ....
The ambassador should be fired .... as Wictor says “if France had any sense of honor”.
Just another reason the USA should have never entered WWI
In the 1930s America was not a superpower. America was still in the depths of terrible economic depression. America's arsenel was woefully out of date, closer to tools of the First World War, then the Second.
After Pearl Harbor, it took all we could muster to save ourselves, let alone the rest of the world. The Frog doesn't have a clue.
I am reminded of an old English toast, the first line of which is: “Death to the French.”
The danged French. They will always be cheese eating surrender monkeys.
It should be remembered that France and the UK botched just about everything in the 1930s, failing to work together effectively to confront rising Nazi German power. Trying to blame the USA (which was not a member of the League of Nations and which had explicitly distanced itself from European power politics) for their own failings is pathetic.
Yes, who was the person declaring “peace in our time”. The UK/France appeasement in one form or another went on for over a decade before the war. To the point of sacrificing other countries for it. Poland, Czechoslovakia, etc.
The Maginot Line worked. The French had better tanks than the Germans and more. The French failed because they did not have the will to fight (at the Government level) and their armor doctrine was not formulated. The French could have stopped the Germans in the Rhineland in 36, Czechoslovakia in ‘38 and attacked when the German attacked Poland in ‘39.
Next time around, Germany gets to KEEP France!
I’m reminded of the old joke about the German tourist coming into France:
French official: “Nationality?”
French official: “Age”
French official: “Occupation?”
German: “No, just visiting for a few days. “
So, Ambassador ASSraud complains that the US didn’t side with the UK and Fwance during the 1930s to confront the fascist powers, eh?
Well, AmbASSador, WTF did you Froggies and the Limeys do to “confront the fascist powers” in 1938 when Herr Hitler demanded the supposedly Germanic areas of Czechoslovakia for free? You scum-sucking cowards did NOTHING! You didn’t lift a finger.
What did you Froggies and the Limeys do in 1936 when Herr Hitler sent a few miserable battalions to remilitarize the Rhineland, in violation of both the Versailles Treaty and the Locarno Treaty? You did bupkis. You sat around with your thumbs up your rear ends - when even Hitler recognized the gross inferiority of his forces compared to yours (not even the Brits - just your Army), and had issued orders to withdraw if the Fwench Army crossed the border to oppose them. But no such crossing occurred...you displayed your utter weakness, thus inviting more aggression by both Germany and Italy, and a continued build-up of their forces.
Just as an aside, the US lost 116,000 men, and had a further 200,000 wounded - ALL fighting for France - during World War One. In the avoidable World War Two (avoidable because YOUR nation was so cowardly and didn’t confront YOUR NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR when you had what was reputed to be the world’s finest army), the US lost 29,000 dead and 106,000 wounded - JUST IN THE BATTLE FOR NORMANDY. That doesn’t include tens of thousands of other dead from other battles to take your miserably shithole of a country back from the Germans.
You should resign as ambassador to the US, but not before you issue an abject apology for the utterly assinine, fact-less and insensitive comment that you made...you shitweasel, you. Then you are invited to GFY!!!!
Very good points. Let me add that France actually had a massive standing army at the time that dwarfed the United States, British and German forces at the time. The failure was the French chickened out of using their superior military while they still had the upper hand. They dawdled and appeased their way through the 1930’s (along with the Brits) until Hitler was too strong to stop. Of course, you could argue even then, they could have beaten him if they took the initiative when he invaded Poland because he had left a relatively small force on the French border.
