    Oh yeah, forgot to express an opinion.;)

    Although at the height of the misguided Iraq war fever that swept the US in 2003/4 I would have taken heart and been happy, now I'm sad about it as I feel (believe it or not) that the US is no longer deserving of these kind of views. Unfortunately, it's global dominance tends to make people forget that there are other nations out there that conduct themselves far more dishonorably and with way more hypocrisy than the US does.

    Well all I can say is we don't do polls on the popularity of other Western nations, we leave that to them.

    U.S. image around world sharply worsens: BBC poll

    Since the U.S. is thought of as the world's only remaining super power, wouldn't you expect that to be the case--seriously?

    I think that green-eyed monster stirs up far more emotions in others than the good that the U.S. does in the world. For example, the money that flowed into Indonesia following the tsumani from Americans, or the help that America gave China and Iran following disasterous earthquakes. I guess we are really bad, nefarious people for doing those kinds of things???
