Ugh. What do you bet this will make the front page of several newspapers:
The World Service survey, conducted in 25 nations including the US, found that three in four respondents disapproved of how Washington has dealt with Iraq.Now that it is officially popular to be anti-American, I'll no longer be pro-American... since I'm rebellious by nature, I'll be anti-anti-American.
The majority of the 26,381 respondents also disapproved of the way five other foreign policy areas have been handled.
The number of those who said the US was a positive influence in the world fell in 18 nations polled in previous years.If we're not the good influence we were, perhaps we should stop funding these 'benevolent' international organizations. Let them pony up a bit more. Come on Europe, lead by example, show us how to do it right. We'll just watch.
In those countries, 29% of people said the US had a positive influence, down from 36% last year and 40% two years ago.
