Budweiser and the Belgians, from an Irish point of view

The Boston Globe recently ran a comment on the bru-haha about the potential Budweiser takeover by InBev (who are, gasp, Belgian).

Ireland's Guinness has been owned by Diageo for years now, and by all accounts it's still the same drink. And, whatever about a US beer company being bought by Belgians, Diageo is British, which has special connotations for Irish people. And, they also own Baileys. Does this matter, really? I don't think so.
