Another terrorist massacre, this one a truck missile in Nice, France.
Remember when this current era of terrorism started (or at least, hit critical mass) on 9/11? The question on media and politicians' lips was, "why do they hate us?" -- the inference being that it has to be our fault.
Well, we blamed ourselves. We blamed Bush. President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize and embarked on his world apology tour, prostrating himself before Muslim leaders and disavowing American/Western exceptionalism.
If we thought all this would somehow help, it didn't. If terrorist acts are a barometer, they hate us more than ever.
But now we no longer ask, "why?".
Why is that? Has something changed?
