(just kidding, it's because he grew up an ethnic and cultural Serb in the Austro-Hungarian Empire)
The Louisiana Purchase was made possible when France's attention was diverted from their American territory to Haiti where L'Ouverture was leading a slave revolt.
I was never disrespectful in any way, but it doesn't matter I guess, cause apparently there's a double standard and some veterans on this site are untouchable. Good to know.
Also, if there ever were stats published, I feel pretty confident that I may hold the record for most deleted comments of anyone on this site.
As for the first one, I've seen this before, it's quite prevalent with people in the US (and my gf, who's from the US, has attested to it) that think themselves quite critical of their own country and yet are blind to their own nationalistic bias. American exceptionalism is ingrained in your culture, often in very subtle and insidious ways, which makes it in some ways a lot more problematic than your run of the mill jingoism.
Also, you say "demonstrably" when nothing has been demonstrated in this comment section, not even my comment, which is an opinion, as is yours. But apparently you seem to be under the impression you are the sole possessor of the truth, which is why you so often make snarky condescending replies, like the one you made to FedericoGuzman up there (btw pointing out something irrelevant to the issue being argued).
