It's pretty funny, in Sweden, patriotism is a bad word. In America, unpatriotism is a bad word.
IMHO, patriotism has a tendency to make you blindly accept what your country does. A democracy thrives well when people are intelligent and critical of the ruling body. While it is not my intention to generalize, that Bush got the majority vote shows that the majority of the American people are not intelligent.
Yes, I am well aware of the fact that not everyone voted for Bush. And yes, many Americans are hypocrites. As davymid said, the only country which has actually used WMD is the USA.
