This is interesting question.
I would say that, whatever be our judgement, the real difference is that 
the US do and other talk.

If we don't like what they do or how they do it, we could do it 
ourselves or shut up.

I remember that italians were bombed, invaded and vanquished by the 
Allies but they were happy.


In Rome were dopped 4.000 bombs (around 1.060 tons), caused aroud 3.000 
deads and 11.000 wounded in a single day (19 July 1943).

Maybe depend on who is the invader and what are its intentions.
