I think that sometimes, when looking into issues that ATS raises, people can become overly cynical. That's my initial thought.
Some people have a hard time looking at the good side of thing a situation too. For example, the Iraq war. Sure war is a bad thing and this
particular war may be unjust, but, the Iraqi people don't have to live in fear anymore.
Some people think that having national pride is a bad thing, too. Over here in Germany I've been told that, after the Second World War, people were
taught that it was wrong to have pride in Germany, or any country for that matter, because it leads to violence and war and blah blah blah. That has
recently changed though from what I've seen.
Perhaps some people don't actually hate America but say they do because it's the "hip" thing to do. Kinda like when I was in high school, I said
I hated my hometown, but I really didn't.
