The latest Pew Study of world opinion notes an ever increasing downward slide in how people regard the United States. Of the 46 countries surveyed, only Israel, Ghana, Kenya, and Nigeria support continued American military presence in Iraq. Respect for America has declined from 2002-2007:
Germany from 60$ favorable to 30%
England from 75% to 51%
Mexico from 64% t0 56%
The current approval rate for the United States is 9% in Turkey, 13% among Palestinians, and 15% in Pakistan.
I find it distressing people in Israel still haven’t grasped that George Bush has done more damage to their nation than any figure in the past fifty years. They should ask a simple question: Is Israel today better off than it was in 2003?
