Barack Obama continues his victorious sweep of the nations of the world who apparently know something that is not known to all Americans–Barack Obama represents the world’s best hope for peace and security. In a straw poll conducted by the Kuwait Times, a majority of respondents said they preferred a victory for Senator Obama over the Republican John McCain. Many believe Obama represents the best hope for people of the Middle East to finally obtain peace in the region. Some cited the huge amount of money being spent by the United States for war when those funds could better be utilized to improve life in the United States.
The Kuwait Times poll revealed strong support not only among the youth of their nation, but, surprisingly among older people. There apparently is so much disgust among Kuwaiti people about the war in Iraq they fear McCain will continue the insanity and prefer a new direction led by Obama.
