    If you were a latinoamerican, born in the poor or middle class suburbs of Buenos Aires or Rio, you would understand easily why we hate the states (and I'been there, and the people is nice, and is not their fault). The USA has destroyed so many lives unnecesarily, only to protect its corporations and the money of a pretty little bunch of rich kids (and rich olds). What do you think that the war in Irak was about? Terrorism? Reeeaaaalllyyyy? C'mon, be serious. We're not children anymore. So some spoiled rich fanatics kill civilians in the metropolis. Strange? Only the action-reaction to another action-reaction. Motives exist. And they're rational. Those who think in terms of good USA vs. baaaad Islam are those whose brain hurts when they try to think. Because the world is more complex than that (thanks god for that). There are good people (those that think about others) and bad people (well, a famous CEO of General Motors comes to mind) in the world, and they live everywhere and have all kind of religions.
