Heavy spin. Thos gullible, unsophistated yahoos over there in the British Empire were easily fooled by the sneaky Americans.
I see it as spin. The US Republic was notorious in its early days in using tariffs to protect industries, which frankly only went to reward some (northern industry) at the expense of others (the South). Did we really need 650,000 dead to solve this issue though?
