Truth in music

I was listening to my “Going Places” playlist (all songs with names of places in them, as well as those involving transit) and I came upon the song “Banana Republics” (original by Steve Goodman, cover by Jimmy Buffet). One line stood out to me, about the natives of aforesaid places:

“You know you cannot trust them, because they know they can’t trust you.”

This seems to me to accurately reflect United States foreign policy for a while now.
