JFK is correct. Many leaders of foreign lands deplore the Bush doctrine.

    Like John F. Kerry, I also keep tabs on the attitudes of of our neighbors. I think the current administration does as well but I think they have a rose colored lense to look through. It only stands to reason that the recipients of at least some American dollars would be so political, don't you think?

    Most abroad sincerely fear the actions of America and even moreso fear what might come next from us. Our now popular policy of "pre-emptive war" (the definition of which is entirely unclear) and our widely known practice of depleting resources both material and human (think Bhophal) without serious consequense is not a secret.

    The administration continues to claim "coalition" while there is no real coalition beyond ourselves and Tony Blair. Tony's own countrymen are deserting his philosphy in droves. The Japanese desire to sell more Asian goods in the mideast as they certainly did in the first gulf war with great success. A few rag-tag self absorbed governments of countries with populations less than the employments of many of our solidly American corporations not to mention the multinationals tend to at least feebly agree and admit to complition with our goals while accepting American monetary gifts. What to think of all that?

    John Kerry is correct. The ambitions of us, Americans, are highly suspect and most don't think highly of GWB or his administration or his motives. Hey, that kinda sounds like my own observations of the situation.

    It's all political rhetoric. Why do you think Libya is coming clean with their weapons? They stated point blank that it was because they wanted relations with the USA again. All those who stood against the actions of the US and Britain are still lining up at our doors. Some are currently bending over backwards to meet with Bush and clean the slate. They may not agree with the Iraq decision, but to claim everyone thinks the Bush administration is deplorable is silly.

    Why don't you just provide us with links of all the countries that are not only speaking out against Iraq, but the Bush administration in general. And what are they doing about it?

    Sorry if I tittered your little tatter, jimnyc. I read the papers, I watch the news, I enjoy many publications. I speak regularly with peoples of other cultures and ideologies. I don't just listen to lemming philosphy and accept it as truth. I suggest you broaden your horizons a bit, my friend, and stop asking for links when you provide few of your own. Your ideology is opinionated but it is no more valid than my own, don't you agree?

    You haven't bothered me, no more than if I read this trash on moveon.org.

    I didn't start the thread, why in the hell would I provide links to backup your fully opinionated post?

    All I know is that the economy is booming, imports/exports haven't been bothered and relations are slowly being restored.

    Your post is all crap without validation, of which you cannot provide any. At this point it becomes more of your turd spinning.

    Tell that crap to the 3.6 million that have lost good jobs, Sir jimnyc. Tell that to the millions that have lost their most cherished lifetime acheivement, their retirement portfolios to theives that steal under the cloak of partisan political judicial interference. Tell that to the millions that are either sick or might well be in the future that tremble at the thought of having to see a Doctor or God forbid a hundred dollar prescription. Tell it to them, jimnyc. Ooooooops, I forgot. Many of them don't vote so I guess they just don't count either, do they?

    I am glad we finally have a leader in this country who does not care what the rest of the world thinks. For too long has America acted in the best interest of the world, at its own expense. Jim is right there is now a healthy fear of what the US will do next. We have had too many Bill Clintons and Jimmy Carters in our past and not enough Ronald Regans !! Fear not my liberal friends the world will never turn against us, we have too much to offer, and being greed makes this world turn, we are assured our place.

    No they don't !! If you do not value and exercise your right to vote you deserve nothing !!

    As far as millions of people losing their jobs, many have their own greed to blame. Please enlighten me exactly how this administration made them lose all these jobs.

    It isn't as high as 3.6 million, and you're leaving out the part about the jobs that have been made. The fact is that there has been an increase in jobs under Bush.

    Nope. Our now "friends" and many that openly disagree with us are admittedly "afraid" of us. I don't know about your experience, jimnyc, but from my own I would say that is a very dangerous/volatile situation for us to be in.
