>Exactly what about the actions of thugs, looters and other such two-legged 
vermin makes everyone in a certain geographic proximity collectively 
"responsible" for their actions? 

  Hear, hear. I don't think many Americans want to be held personally 
responsible for Clinton's Monica-related attack on the Sudanese 
pharmaceutical factory, the trillion-plus dollars the US has spent supporting 
dictators around the world since 1945, or the US murder of two and a half 
million Russians at the end of World War II in Operation Keelhaul.
  On the other hand, if you pay taxes to finance atrocities, I guess you have 
to expect to be considered an enemy by the people you're murdering. Even 
though you're under duress.
