Fact 1: The attack happened on US soil.
Fact 2: The US has been the greatest liberator and defender of freedom 
in the history of the world.
Fact 3: Mozdev was created by US citizens, was born and lives in the US.
Fact 4: The US has spent more money on humanitarian efforts than any 
other country in the world.

So I'm sure the "certain political feeling" you are feeling is one of 
*appreciation* indeed.

I'm sick and tired of all the US bashing I see and hear abroad. We don't 
like to discuss non developer issues on this list, but quite honestly 
this type of wining gets me nauseous. The US flag is not a political 
symbol, it is a symbol of this great country and the beacon freedom it 
upholds for the rest of the world.

I don't see a flag there now, so I guess Chris or someone already pulled 
it down. I would prefer it there.
