Why not hate the US?

In 2001, shortly after the unfortunate events of September the 11th , Harris Interactive conducted a poll on the reasons why people hate the US:

When asked to pick one "main reason why those who attacked us and their supporters hate the United States," the reasons given most often were "our democracy and freedom" (26%) and "our support for Israel" (22%). However, almost as many believe the main reason is "our values and way of life" (20%), and "our influence on the economy and lives of Middle Eastern countries" (17%). Only 11% believe our economic and military power is the main reason.

So over 50% of them live in lala land apparently.

So the United States of America blew it up now. I mean come on, after all their efforts trying to come closer to the Arab and Islamic world since Obama was elected they came back to square one.

The United States is deeply disturbed by the recent violence and regrets the tragic loss of life and injuries suffered among those involved in the incident last night aboard the Gaza-bound ships. We are working to ascertain the facts. We expect a credible and transparent investigation and strongly urge the Israeli government to investigate the incident fully.

So they decided to 1)block condemning Israel and 2) stopped an independent investigation by the UN. [Aljazeera]


Wonder how extreme would they be if we are still under the Bush era. So my final remark, congratulations for their stupidity, they did it again .... hurray ...
