Angry at America?

Yahoo/AP has a story up called 5 years after 9/11, many angry at U.S.

America did not deserve these attacks, not remotely, and I believe that our actions in response have been quite justified. But just for the sake of argument, let's say that we had deserved it, or that we've gone overboard in the days since.

Ask yourself, will you ever see a story called "Over 60 years after Hiroshima, many still angry at Japan"? Would anyone publish such an article, featuring a bunch of backbiting from leaders of nations that are supposedly her allies? A quote from President Bush, perhaps, highlighting the horrors of Pearl Harbor?

Somehow, I really, really doubt it. Once again, the media can't help but make a political shot while standing on the bones of our dead.
