Yes, I agree that this is the major point for the nationalistic viewpoint of the situation. I guess the question for Bebe is, if there was an attack on NZ by another country or group, how would you feel about it? It's possible that Americans get "their backs up" more than most.

Then we also have to wonder, do Iraqis feel this way about us?
