Why do they hate us?

After the horrific attacks on 11 September 2001, some of the intelligentsia were more concerned with the question "Why do they hate us?" than with responding to the attacks. Well, the answer to that question might be found in the reaction over the last couple weeks to doing business with an Arab country. As a result of the uproar, Dubai World Ports capitulated and is planning on selling the portion of the deal pertaining to U.S. ports. While a few fools in DC will declare this a victory, the real results of this capitulation will be difficult to measure. The zenophobic reaction of some people and their congressional representatives to doing business with Arabs should give some of the easily influenced enough reason to hate us. There are enough nuts out there looking for anything they can twist to show that America is anti-Arab so they can exploit the uneducated to carry out terrorism. The fear the nuts have had is that we would make in-roads and demonstrate in Iraq and around the Middle East that we aren't so bad. They won't say a few people misunderstood the deal. No, they will play this up as confirmation of their preconceived opinions of Americans. Any progress we have made in the last few years has just been flushed.

Unfortunately, you are probably right.

We'll feel multiple aftershocks from this, and the pin heads probably won't be able to connect the dots.
