When everything wrong in the world is apparently America's fault, it is pretty easy to take a few cheap pot shots at them.
Just ask Matt, he's the undisputed trigger puller and a "Sunday political columnist" to boot, which says it all really.
For the record we've got quite a bit to actually thank the Yanks for:-
1. That Japanese isn't our first language.
2. That Communism collapsed.
3. That they have helped create and maintain the highest standard of living mankind has ever known.
I realise that these facts are an inconvenient truth for Matt, but reality is that a friend is a friend. Thankfully even most politicians know this simple truth.
Matt's narrow minded point of view just exposes his naive understanding of human nature.
