I must admit that it is totally beyond my understanding how one can waste so 
much thoughts on the *possibility* of offending someone with something, that 
  almost anyone would consider an honour, while at the same time accepting a 
*military attack* on foreign countries.

Not that I feel that *you* are thinking this. Talking about the majority of 
people in the US. Just to express how puzzled I am on this discussion, being
an "old" european.
