Why do they hate us?

Pakistani-American Mohsin Hamid tries to explain:
The residue of U.S. foreign policy coats much of the world. It is the other part of the answer to the question, "Why do they hate us?" Simply because America has -- often for what seemed good reasons at the time -- intervened to shape the destinies of other countries and then, as a nation, walked away.
In other words, they hate us because we are not more imperialist in imposing our values on Third World countries. They realize that they'd be better off if America ruled the world.
