It is important to note that when Americans say “patriotism,” they almost invariably mean “nationalism.” There are very few honorable exceptions.

Nationalism in operation may be studied in the stark contrast between the Lockerbie disaster, where the solitary witness linking Megrahi was paid several million dollars to give his testimony, and the shooting down of an Iranian civil airliner, killing over 200 on board, by the battleship USS Vincennes, separated by a few months from the Lockerbie case. The officers of the Vincennes were awarded medals by the US government.
