  1. Daniel,

    Ahh… the power of symbols.
    America loves its symbols.
    The fall of the Saddam statue… taking advantage of the fall of the Berlin wall… etc.

    Perhaps this is precisely the “meddling” in other nations’ affairs that creates the animosity towards the U.S. (?)

    Our meddling with newsworthy symbolism makes US hated around the world.
