    this "they'll think we're too confrontational" stuff is a ruse, meant to sidetrack oversight. most sensible people know it's necessary to be confrontational in some  situations, but not in others.

    the point is to wisely choose which situations.

    americans LOVE oversight.

      as they love confrontation. As long as they don't have to do the confronting.

      That's OK - we'll do it for them.

      I think that's what we tend to forget. Americans really, really love a fight. They just don't like being sucker punched, and they don't like it when you change the rules in the middle of the fight.

      And they really, really don't like to lose.
