Is "W" Burning?

Scene from Mississippi Burning (recreated from memory, and I haven't seen it in many weeks--apologies for slight word variations)...

Local redneck (the Sheriff?): Some people say there's things worth dying for. Round here we say, "Some things are worth killing for."

FBI Agent (played by Gene Hackman): Rest of the country doesn't see it that way.

Local redneck Sheriff: Rest of the country don't mean jackshit, boy. You in Mis'sippi now.


Let's create an analogy to recent U.S. foreign policy out of that scene!

Local redneck Sheriff = "W" Bush
FBI Agent = the United Nations
"Rest of the country (that doesn't mean jackshit)" = the opinion of the nations in the rest of the world
