I'm finding some of the response to this interesting. So, the current economic climate in America is nothing to do with greedy Big Business CEOs
fleecing the little man - which undeniably happens the world over, not just America, but instead it's an intentional terrorist attack
("'economic 9/11 attack'") on America by British hedge funds?
What, did Rice ride to Russia at midnight on horseback or something? "The British are coming!*"
I know desperate mobs need scapegoats but really? How exactly is 'British' finance so isolated and separate from America's that it can orchestrate
this? Isn't British finance teetering like everyone else's? Or did it pass-by some Americans that Britain had to nationalise a bank as early as 7
months ago? All those CEOs rolling around the floor naked in your money, I wonder what nationality it says on their passports? I wonder what flag they
grew up pledging too? I wonder what their teeth look like? Don't forget, you can always tell a Brit by their teeth.
I love the idea that basically Condoleezza is basically saying 'it's not us, the government, that's in anyway responsible for the financial mess
of America - despite the fact that American government sleep in the same bed as American Big Business**' - it's actually the fault of the
British and the Israelis', and some people are buying it!
I'm seeing this as merely the next installment in how Americans are merely subjects beneath the beautifully polished boot of King George and how
nothing is actually America's fault, because there's no America, it's all Britain. It's the Beastly British! They're responsible
for your loss of freedoms and everything bad that's ever happened to you since Kindergarten. Not the good stuff, though, when America went to the
Moon, that was American not Britain. Don't forget America had to save Britain's sorry behind in WWII, so America won that war not the
tl;dr - America = the good stuff, Britain = the bad stuff. Apparently.
