We have arrived at a strange time in this country where the worst about America and our military seems to so quickly be taken as truth by the press and reported and spread around the world -- often with little context and little scrutiny -- let alone correction or accountability after the fact. Speed it appears is the critical determinant. Less so, context.

It's pure anti-semitism in the form of anti-Americanism. The better the US military does, the more it shows itself capable of toppling dictators without substantially hurting civilians, the more powerful and efficient it it, the more it will be hated. For, as Truepeers points out below, it is not hated for being evil; it is hated for being good.
