What historical friendship??? We fighted in two world wars against each other, remember? Their part made the Treaty of Versailles possible who then made somebody like Hitler possible who in turn made the second world war possible. Then there was the cold war against their former ally...the US propped up western Germany as the bollwerk and maybe the future battle field of the next war against the soviet empire (and not out of friendship). We are allies at best...but we differ in many points. There is no historical friendship!
