Actually the USA was required to pay reparations to Britain.
the treaty of Paris which ended the war the us government was to pay for
land confiscated from loyal citizens of the king who were driven from
their homes by the 'patriots'. In Britain those 'patriots' were
Britain refused to remove their forces from the western border for
years, protecting the indian nations from the depredations of the
colonists. John Adams and Jefferson waged ineffectual diplomacy for
years to try to get british troops removed from the Ohio valley. The
British replied "when will you pay reparations?"
So, the usa's founding treaty was never intended to be honored by the
usa. And never was. Those unpaid reparations probably amount to
thousands of trillions of pounds sterling by now.
Oh, in Britain they teach that they won the war of 1812. Which they
did. Americans lie about it to themselves.
