Did you read the same post I did? I didn't get an us versus the world sentiment from Sam's post. He said screw those that don't like us. I am fine with that. CB-No matter how hard you try, you will never ever get everyone to agree to everything at one time. Hell you even pointed out that in the WWII declaration. When the US declared war after being attacked, we still had 1 congressman vote against the war!
As for the potential terrorist, I strongly feel that Sam, myself and even you are vastly different then them. We value human life. Any group that preaches suicide as a way to heaven is evil. I am not condeming Islam as there are many peaceful practitioners of it. People of all religions have commited evil acts in the name of God, but they were all evil people. I for one value my life far to much to intentionaly kill myself to take out an enemy. I am not a coward and would fight for my country if called, however dieing in battle and blowing myself up are two vastly different things, so yes apotential terrorist with no value for life (theirs or others) is vastly different from us! *

What if you see no other way out of your current position? What if you live in destitute away form your comfort life in the US? What if you live in a concentration camp held under strike control. Every time you go to work you are stripped searched. You are treated none humane. What if you see people all around you with everything and you have nothing. Then someone comes up to you and tells you all of this is because of the US. Rid them, and your family will be happy. What will you do if you had no hope left. No other choices. You see yourself dieing a broke old man wishing you could change your country for your family.
