    Most German citizens love Americans. During the Cold War, my uncle was stationed in West Germany (he was one of the alert units that could be in the field in under 6 hours). He was treated to many a hot meal by German citizens who claimed that they would have starved to death in the late 40s had it not been for the Marshall Plan, the plan initiated by George C. Marshall to demilitarize and rebuild war-torn Europe rather than punish Germany and leave everyone else out in the cold. The East Germans love us for being the catalyst that caused the fall of the wall. No matter what the German politicians think of us, the German people are our allies.

    This is just another in a string of incidences I've seen that warms the heart to the people of Germany.
