Why can't we delete the dictionaries we don't want from our Library?

Just because. When you could,they came back anyway.

My guess is that it's because some people WOULD delete the dictionaries they want to keep. Amazon is going to get complaints either way, and it's probably less problematic to make them effectively part of the OS than it would be to have to walk people through reloading the dictionaries.

Because Amazon says: "Your Kindle comes with free dictionaries that are included with your device registration. These included dictionaries cannot be deleted from your account."

Ya, You all are most likely right, I still don't like it, but what can I do? Oh well, live with it. Everything else is good! Thanks for your answers.

Just change the view on your Manage Your Kindle page to books and you will no longer see the dictionaries. They are not on your device, taking up space but are available should you suddenly decide to learn a new language and need the dictionary.

Wow, Thank you, That's a "Duh!" to me. How about that, something simple like that. Thanks again!
