Colombia: Gringo Narcissism and the Blame Game...LOL

Gringo Narcissism
Harry from Chase me, ladies, I'm in the cavalry has his unique take on the American habit of blaming/crediting the U.S. for assorted misdeeds/successes in other countries:

Today is Colombian Independence day. I was talking to a guy at the airport the other day who told me the US is creating a quagmire in Colombia, as if the Colombians weren’t perfectly capable of organising their own quagmires. They’ve been having a quagmire ever since they got independence from Spain, and I resent the way these Americans try to claim the credit for everything.
