Well, it seems you are. You asked Phil if he'd ever flown for the
Russians in WWII. Was that an admission that you are talking out your
arse?

I take it that is an admission that I am correct on this point.

   No, but you'll claim it anyway.  Your ignorance and arrogance won't
let you do anything else.

Having the combination of ignorance and arrogance is what sets
Americans apart from the rest of the world.

It isn't an accusation, it is an observation. I lived in the US for a
number of years, and, for the last 6 years, I have spent between 3 and 6
weeks every year working there. Because of this I have had the
opportunity to observe US attitudes both public and private close up.

As to ignorance, the mainstream news media in the US report very little
on world events unless US interests are directly involved or there is
spectacular footage available. The dedicated news channels are a little
better but still not up to the standard of similar organisations
elsewhere in the world. I was surprised how little the majority of my
American aquaintances knew of the world, we aren't talking about trailer
trash rednecks either but reasonably well educated middle class people.

As for arrogance, there seems to be an opinion permeating US society
that the "US way" is the only way. I have seen amazement expressed and
ridicule and scorn put on societies that have worked perfectly for
centuries but which do not conform the the "American ideal". I have
heard US commentators express the opinion that "We should invade their
country, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity", US
political leaders "Declare the USSR illegal" or "Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran".
It all sound pretty arrogant to me.

Not any more, he's one of yours now, and you are welcome to him.

Good riddance to bad rubbish, and he has descended to the level
appropriate for him by getting citizenship there.

   We don't want him. He's too much like Sloman.

Yep, he's been a US citizen for a decade or two, and we are more than happy
to disown him!
