I was looking at the slideshow of the events in Russia on Yahoo!News when i saw this picture:

why is this fellow wearing a US shirt? After the treatment the US gives Russia the last thing i would have on is a shirt depicting their flag

Maybe he is an American living in Russia.

Despite the usual anti-American rhetoric that emanates from Europe, they still embrace our culture, and the symbols that represent the "Evil Empire"... just one of those strange but true deals.

p.s. Nice RAM logo.

I see U.S. shirts in all types of pictures.
I've seen shirts from other countries in the U.S. also.
Its not uncommon for people in other countries to wear shirts they may have gotten while visiting another country.

Most people know the difference between a T-shirt and an country.

Probably that was one reason people in Yahoo chose that picture.

I do not know if there was any special reason for that guy using that T-shirt, but even if he did not had any special reason, the American flag is a colourful and pleasant graphic to use in a T-shirt.

Hey, I do not like Americans but I am talking to them.
(just kidding, I do not even know any American)
