As a non american I'd like to give my opinion on why several people from several countries hates the USA, it is in part because the USA loves to stick their noses where they shouldn't, or when they feel they have the right to control technology

even tho sometimes it's necesary (I'd be afraid if saddam hussein had access to ultra techs).

But it also hinders technological development in other countries, and that's not good
for example the Mac g4 is banned in 50 countries because it reaches the supercomputer category, and 128 bit encryption technology is banned in the whole world (except for the usa and canada).

Another thing that makes people hate the usa, is that they sometimes are unfair and tyranical with other countries, (but not just the usa) the problem is that the US is the country the gathers the most attention by the media.
