While reading this post from Liability, this stood out: It reminded me of the crowds which spontaneously sprung up in front of the White House, Times Square, and other places after the President's announcement of bin Laden's death. Which in turn reminded me of the crowds celebrating in the Middle East when the WTC collapsed. In their minds, and the way that they grew up listening to how evil America is from their leaders and clerics, they won the big game when the towers fell. And we were rightfully repulsed by their celebrations. Now, we've won the big game, and they are repulsed by our celebrations. Are they wrong? Were we wrong? Or is it just a natural reaction when you win?
