It seems to me there is far more animosity from the French against Americans than vice versa. I rarely hear a bad word about French people from Americans (except for complaints about their failure to tip in contrast to other foreign tourists) There are some French people here who are staying for an extended period of time because they love this area, and they said when people see a beautiful photograph in thier home of a place near here, they are admiring of it, until they find out it is of a place in the United States. Then they sneer.
I don't think it is about Americans bad mouthing other nations, it's more the attitude they have. I lived with 3 americans for 6 months who were very nice people but there attitude seemed to be there was the American way and then there was the wrong way, which I found very irritating!
