Just for starters - Sweden was part of the Marshall Plan.
I think the odds are pretty low that Trump knows what the Marshall Plan is.

That's why I love this thread.
You love it because it gives you an opportunity to misrepresent what other posters' write? Ok.

I may not know much about the Marshall Plan, but I know what I like.

Not sure how any normal person not blinded by ideology could read Lion in Winter's heated and lengthy rebuttal to my simple, one-sentence statement that Sweden had accepted Marshall Plan aid, as anything other than minimization of the Marshall Plan and criticism of the US.

Which has now, in the flurry of subsequent posts, has (somewhat humourously) been walked back.

This thread is a fine example of posters living in an alt-left bubble and echo chamber. That's why I love this thread and it's fun to just peek my head in once in a while.

Will Ilhan Omar struggle against Danielle Stella? Possibly. Is this just the Minnesota accent?

So you are ignoring the "benefit as well" and still reading it as "only".

Is there any help for this affliction?
