Sir, I was moved on reading Arundhati Roy's piece on Noam Chomsky (Aug. 24). It had an undercurrent of the bitter fact that the forlorn people of the developing countries are always at the mercy of the Anglo-American juggernaut. "Why don't they hate us more" and "isn't it surprising that September 11 did not happen earlier," would have been the feeling of any average American, had he ever experienced the agony of his afflicted Afro-Asian brethren.
