Let's face it, the United States is damned if they do take action and damned if they don't take action, so we're always going to be the bad guys in some people's eyes who can't seem to grasp the entire picture.

It is the only country on this planet to have ever used nuclear weapons.
Which is one reason why some countries see having nukes as a good thing.
