It's like taking a bollocking at work and because you can't get back at your boss you go home a kick the dog because it's the only way to take out your frustration on someone which is (a) not expecting it and (b) unable to defend themselves .
On the subject of morality and racism - the US was racist against Blacks even as recent as the 1940's/50's, and had a thriving slave trade at the time where slavery had been outlawed elsewhere in Europe (e.g. UK)
Where was the US morality when they used WMD on Hiroshima and Nagasaki (Japan) Did you forget about that?
Where is the morality when alot of Irish Americans give financial support to the IRA? Apparently the IRA were out canvasing for support in N.Y city on the day of 9/11.
ALL countries have committed atrocities at one time or other, but I suppose that it is easier on some people's consciences to put the blame on the others as being relgious fanatics/zealots.
There is no doubt that the US is the dominant country in the world and it's influence is global. However, not all countries and societies want to embrace that, and the way of life that goes with that. And perhaps they see their way of life and society + traditions being threatened, and that is what they don't like.
Plus they see what they think is double standards - supporting countries like Israel even when there are longstanding UN resolutions against them to pull out of the occupied territories (longer than the ones imposed on Iraq) - but of course there are alot of rich Jewish Americans to help sway opinion.
