#1 Well if we're going to be catty about it, Britain et al gave us the Treaty of Versailles [because they knew better than them damn amateur Yanks] and as a consequence WWII. The stupid Yanks gave you the Marshal Plan, NATO and the longest period of peace in central Europe since the Romans. You all whined about cowboy Reagan and how he was going to start WWIII, but you got the fall of the 'Evil Empire' and democracy in eastern Europe [no thanks to the French]. So yeah, go yapping along the old line about I would never take my guidance from swivel-eyed right-wing Americans and I'm surprised that anybody ever did. You certainly know how to do it better than us stupid Yanks.
