I'm pretty sure most governments (if not all) don't care about the average US citizen. For the war on "terrorism" the US seems to take note about everyone and everything. The point is, the tools for this war are now used to pursue (corporate?) US interests ruthlessly at all costs and most of you US citizens don't get, is that there will be consequences for this in the long run.
