'Muslim Rage' & US Policy

Expand your horizons

The Nation’s take on the riots was predictable, formulaic, and I agree with much of it. But how do you explain that the country where we became most involved militarily is the same where people deplored the attacks on our embassy and carried pro-American signs? (Amazing sight! Highly unusual.) The Nation often takes too America-centric a view. There certainly is a clash of civilizations between fundamentalist Muslims and some fundamentalist Christians in the US Congress, Mitt Romney and secular Europeans and Americans (of whom we approve since they’re like us).
