I lived and worked in Glendale California from 1969 to 1972 . I left to return to GB because I felt exploited and that America was the country of illusion and every thing was not as portrayed on Hollywood films. I believe that all their expeditions into other countries were to exploit and develop the countries oil ectra .Helping or freeing the people was a red herring. When Norway discovered oil the first thing they did was to chase the USA oilmen away. A very wise move. I wish we in the UK had done the same.

Very insightful and honest analysis. I would add to the mix, for the non-Muslim world, that many hate the US for their general ignorance and apathy about the rest of the world, despite the fact that US policy and intervention dominates much of world politics. Equally many hate the US for their unsurpassed hubris. Personally I don't hate the US, but there are certainly things I hate about it such as blind political dogmatism, the irrational love of firearms and incarceration, and the celebration and embrace by many Americans of ignorance as a virtue.

Actually, to a hawkish US thinker, this all fits nicely. They hate us for our freedoms, therefore by continuing to erode those freedoms (NSA, IRS, etc), Barack Obama is a wimp and is appeasing the bad guys. So Americans have another reason to hate the Black President. And the cycle of Right Wing Batshittery continues.

Latest comment: Umm...no, the fact that he IS continuing to erode those freedoms is reason enough for anybody to hate him, liberal or conservative.
