Considering the last 40 years of history people claiming that the American's are bloodthirsty are 100% correct. The number of wars the US has started and carried out since 1945 dwarf the number of wars Germany or France have started or carried out. But taken over the last 2000 years, yea then it is ironic, just as it is ironic when American's condemn Germany for eugenics and genocide...Well then you have a short term memory.
From the get go, there was a air of superiority many Europeans have which increased after Afghanistan.
We are the more 'refined, intelligent type'. I have heard people in France and Germany sit there and over generalize and call Americans blood thirsty (Amusing that it comes from the Germans really)
Give it time, on these boards there is a tendency for American's to throw WW2 comments at Europeans when we are critical of parts of the US history or society or dont agree with them. I mean, they still use the WW2 reference almost every time the lead up to the Iraq war comes around.. And just search the forms for WW2 comments and you shall see.. The US won WW2 without any help according to many of the comments hereI have never had WW2 thrown in my face and any case where I do see it thrown in on this board in many cases is when a European (I don't need to name names but we all know who that European is) shouts about not needing US and how violent it is.
