It's an extremely comforting and hopeful fact that, despite the brutality and slaughter which has comprised most of American foreign policy for the past century or so, the greater part of the world's people do not wish death and destruction upon the average American. Only an extreme few travel to those lengths. That fact alone must be indicative of something in human nature, or at least in human enlightenment.
Along those lines, the idea that those who have actually been released from Guantanamo Bay, while unhappy, are not immediately taking up arms is remarkable. It is almost as if American "counter-terrorism" policies are designed to elicit revenge as a response, and yet (contrary to the government's claims) it is in relatively short supply!
