The plot goes like this.... the school bully beats the stuffing out of some little guy. If the little guy lifts a hand in his defense, then the bully uses that as a justification to escalate. The surrounding crowd are the nations of the world. They know its wrong and they quietly wring their hands, but nobody does anything to draw the attention of the bully. They know that if they do, the bully will not let them alone. America is like the parent of the bully. They know their kid is a monster, but that was how they raised him. Of course in the movie plot, some hero emerges and clobbers the bully. Heros usually emerge from the unlikliest sources.
