14. I don't know that they hate America. Lots of US citizens go there pretty often,

like the Google folks recently and many others through the years. I think they probably hate our government threatening them, and then putting an embargo on them, and then criticizing them because they have little to do with other countries.

See, bullies, tear your shirt and then laugh because you have holes in your clothes. Figure out who has the holes and who's laughing, and you'll find the bullies.

Letting people starve? Thank goodness in the USA, the richest country in the world, no child goes to sleep hungry at night.

Brutally crushing dissent? Thank goodness Kent State never happened, nor COINTELPRO, nor arresting Bradley Manning, right?

Threatening their neighbors? Thank goodness we don't do that - after all, North Korea is too far away to be our neighbor, although the Russians were right across the Bering Strait all the while we had MAD.

Thumbing their nose at other groups of countries? Thank goodness the good old USA never rejected the power of the international community to end extraordinary rendition, just to start at one place.

Weird Stalinist view of socialism? Thank goodness the top 2% of people in this country don't own 70% of all assets in some weird Randian version of capitalism!

Better get a mirror.
