What rather irks me about this is that there seems to be a double 
standard.  Where's the worldwide outrage when Americans are brutishly 
treated or murdered, or our flag is burned?  Yet, when Americans do these 
things we're somehow the lowest form of scum.  As I recall, Muslim 
governments have destroyed religious objects of other faiths, yet somehow 
we're supposed to revere theirs?
