Based on the premise of "You need to show how dangerous it is, so destory
something in the beginning, only nothing American as no-one will believe
that, so let's pick on the foreigners as no-one cares about them, so then
when we threaten something people do care about (i.e. America), people
will care". (Although points to ID4 for blowing up American landmarks,
probably because the filmmakers knew no-one would recognise foreign
landmarks. :)  Oh the cheers that sounded when the White House blew up...)
