41. Islamic militants hated the USA long before Bush 43 came along.
One could make an argument the Islamic world has a valid grudge against us going back to the Eisenhower administration, when the CIA toppled the elected government of Iran in favor of the Shah. But that's beside the point.

The point is, Islamic militants didn't like us when the world was divided up between two superpowers during the Cold War. And they won't like us in a multipolar world with the USA, EU, China, Russia, and India shaping world events, either. They just won't like America -- period -- no matter how benevolent our nation is.

For better or for worse, America is always going to have a major influence upon world events. With the assassination of Bhutto, now is not the time for liberals and Democrats to try and outsprint each other in the Blame America First Race. Bhutto's assassination is the responsibility of Islamic militants and Islamic militants alone, and they would've killed Bhutto or any other such political figure whether Bush, Gore, or Kerry was in the Oval Office.
