It's interesting how Democrats harp on foreign policy explanations for anti-Americanism while disregarding the role domestic policy plays. In the world according to Obama, America is hated because we're in Iraq:

"The fact that the continuation of a presence in Iraq as Sen. McCain has suggested is exactly what, I think, will fan the flames of anti-American sentiment and make it more difficult for us to create a long-term and sustainable peace in the world," Obama said today at a campaign stop at The Little Dooey, a barbeque restaurant in Columbus, Miss.

Never mind that farm subsidies--as in the policy Obama defended vociferously while pandering to Iowans a few months back--leave the poorest people in the world starving and without jobs.
