They do Fear America...I fear America. I'd be really afraid if I was a Middle-Easterner. I think of Americans as a modern day Roman Empire...we have the army, the technology, and the ability to go anywhere in the world and fight. We're the only army that can be ready to go anywhere in the globe in a days notice. So consider this and reevaluate what the "arsenal of Democracy" really means to someone who doesn't have the same ideology as we do. It's definitely a threat. Make no illusions...when you get Islam mixed in with the ideology, you can have jihad. There's radical religious sects in any religion. Think of that Mitchell character who kidnapped Elizabeth Smart, there's a radical Christian. SO this thing works either way. We have the target on our backs because we're the big boy on the block. Being Number 1 means you're playing king of the hill and you're on top. It also means the other guys playing are trying to take you down. If they're not taking you down, they're trying in a very sublte manner to criticize you or work against you. If I lived in the middle east and I was educated...I'd be pissed of at America for helping Saddam, Osama, The Shah, and any other dictator that we helped come to power just because they were the lesser of the two evils, or they helped serve our interests at the time. It's called being a puppet. Now some of our puppets are loose and we can't control them anymore, we should be responsible for bringing that puppet under control. Remember what we did to Manuel Noriega? Nobody objected because that was Panama...I don't see much difference with Iraq...so why do people object? They get to thinking about alterior motives. Bottom line...the tyrants have to go, and the sooner the better. Containment and Appeasement do not work.

That fear is hatred when someone or someone's family is directly affected by the American military. And by the way, we are unapologetic when "shit happens" militarily in 3rd world countries. So the have-nots are definitely resentful and with 1 part religion, 2 parts fanatacism, and 3 parts hot sun you get a pretty ugly mixture of some crazy arab toting an ak and shouting about "in the name of Allah" i'm going to blow up that McDonald's down the street over by the Mosque.
