From the BBC - "Death To America"

BBC's Washington correspondent Justin Webb looks at the anti-American movement.

Part 1: "A pattern was emerging and has never seriously been altered. A pattern of willingness to condemn America for the tiniest indiscretion - or to magnify those indiscretions - while leaving the murderers, dictators, and thieves who run other nations oddly untouched."

Part 2: "In other words, in Latin America as elsewhere in the world, is anti-Americanism a smoke screen, a very convenient smoke screen, [to] hide the reality of local failure?"

I think nearly all anti-Americans are hypocrits. On one hand they spout antiUS rhetoric, while with the other hand the take whatever aid, trade and technology the US offers. I'm glad to see someone in the BBC is thinking the same.
