Iran is also pissed at us for abolishing their democracy in 1953 and installing the pro west shah and ignoring the human rights violations in order to get an ally in the middle east.
But no our country is not "run" by "assholes"
Still even though we did do those things thats no excuse for them to fund terrorists and brainwash everyone including children to hate America.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men than himself John Stuart Mill
