Come on, you cannot be serious here.
Put yourself in their shoes.

A story has just come out about US forces systematically abusing Iraqi prisoners. The entire planet is furious at the US, and many are calling for a full pullout (mind you, I do not support this, since pulling out would plunge the area into chaos).

Do you
a) Bide your time and let the world hate the US, and insist that they pull out of your country (which you want them to leave)?
b) Kidnap and decapitate an American and publish the video, swaying world opinion back to the US's favour and ensuring continued occupation of Iraq?

Come on now. Common sense.
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
