Personally, I see booing as an act of patriotism as well. It's more than likely a "mine is bigger than yours" type thing (rather than a serious critique of US foreign policy). That doesn't mean I agree with the booing though, because frankly, I think we're all impotent. The singing of National anthems and the booing of National anthems offends me equally.
