If these refer to the "people", then the problem is simple.

The flame war would look at the direction of 
"why don't we have scots while we have english?"

english for EN and american for US seems to be 
a logical solution.

Discussions claiming that people in the US are not American,
or American people should not default to English language,
should really not be done here.

If people are expecting "language" to be there,
yes, we know there exists variations of languages.
