4. American imperialism?

You're kind of on the right track. But I'd instead phrase it as perceived American imperialism. Obama might have the best of intentions in sending troops here, there, and everywhere.

But for many locals, it's an insult, a deep insult.

Assuming that it was a terrorist attack, does the "insult" excuse the deliberate targeting of innocents? NO! But it does help explain it.
