- Yes, those countries who hate the US, and by extension, the
West. It's really no secret which countries have aided and

As to why--at least for most of the Islamic world, which is

anti-life, anti-man mentality and philosophic underpinnings.
For those of us that have not spent extensive time or lived in that
part of the world (as I have), it's difficult to comprehend the level
of hatred towards the West (in particular the US) and level of
irrationality and ignorance.
