Many Americans genuinely believe that the US presence is a brake to even
more chaos, rather than see it as the precipitating agent of the chaos.

It is hard for people to believe that they are disliked, Rajesh. Consider:
one could also ask how the Indian public could be so dumb that they don't
realize the idiocy of the continued Indian Army presence in Kashmir. Yet, do
you see any great upswing from the Indian public calling on the politicians
to bring the troops home from Kashmir? The ability of the ruling class
everywhere to baffle and befuddle the masses is not to be underestimated.
