Poll shows world is turning against Americans, not just Bush


RAW STORY

Published: Wednesday May 17, 2006


In increasing numbers, people around the globe resent American power and wealth and reject specific actions like the occupation of Iraq and the campaign against democratically elected Palestinian leaders, in-depth international polling shows, (information-restricted) Newshouse News Service reports Wednesday. Excerpts:

#

...In the past, while Europeans, Asians and Arabs might have disliked American policies or specific U.S. leaders, they liked and admired Americans themselves. Polls now show an ominous turn. Majorities around the world think Americans are greedy, violent and rude, and fewer than half in countries like Poland, Spain, Canada, China and Russia think Americans are honest.

The dislike is accelerating among youths, Stokes said. For instance, 20 percent of Britons under age 30 have an unfavorable opinion of Americans, double the percentage of 2002. More than half of those asked in France, Germany, Italy, Canada and Britain said the "spread of American ideas and customs" was a "bad thing."

...Almost half of those polled in Britain, France and Germany dispute the whole concept of a global war on terrorism, and a majority of Europeans believe the invasion of Iraq was a mistake. More than two-thirds of Germans, French and Turks believe American leaders lied about the reasons for war and believe the United States is less trustworthy than it once was.

In Brazil, 52 percent held a favorable view of the United States in 2002; by the following year that had dropped to 34 percent. In Russia, the pro-America portion of the population dropped from 61 percent to 36 percent over a year.

World opinion of U.S. sinking

Dislike of everything American on the rise


Wednesday, May 17, 2006

By David Wood

Newhouse News Service


WASHINGTON -- The United States has often irritated the rest of the world, but lately it's gotten worse -- and more dangerous.

In increasing numbers, people around the globe resent American power and wealth and reject specific actions like the occupation of Iraq and the campaign against democratically elected Palestinian leaders, in-depth international polling shows.

Analysts say America's image problem is pervasive, deep and perhaps permanent, an inevitable outcome of being the world's only superpower.

But there is worse news. In the past, while Europeans, Asians and Arabs might have disliked American policies or specific U.S. leaders, they liked and admired Americans themselves.

Polls now show an ominous turn. Majorities around the world think Americans are greedy, violent and rude, and fewer than half in countries like Poland, Spain, Canada, China and Russia think Americans are honest.

Reading this part of the article made my skin crawl:

Few analysts expect more than marginal improvements in global public opinion, short of another 9/11.

"In my judgment, you're going to see a lot of this hostility disappear only when various countries really feel they need friendly relations with the United States, probably for their own security," said Solomon. "It will probably take some major event for that to take place."

Bullshit, people who think straight would never turn their back to anyone on this planet, and from that point of view, the following could be a typical message from the conscious hearts of everyone to the conscious hearts of the American people, I'm sure:

Dear American friends,

You have our full support in your struggle for truth, justice, and freedom, the same struggle that we endeavour in Europe, Africa, The Middle East, Asia, Australia, or anywhere else on Earth.

We wish you strength and wisdom beforehand, and love, peace and harmony afterwards.

Kind regards,
Everyone

"Asked where to find the "good life," no more than one in 10 people recommended the United States in a poll conducted in 13 countries, Kohut said. More popular: Canada, Australia, Britain and Germany. Only in India did the United States still represent the land of opportunity, he found."

"...For instance, 20 percent of Britons under age 30 have an unfavorable opinion of Americans, double the percentage of 2002..."

Maybe they all visit GLP! Only half serious, younger people visit forums on the net and sometimes Americans, especially the younger ones can be pretty nasty, arrogant and think their country can do no wrong. They also exhibit a deplorable knowledge about the rest of the world. But similar things could be said of British youngsters, I suppose.

Bush Must Go,

You and apologists like you sicken me. You sound as if you would support the Mexican government if they filed a lawsuit against the U.S. for protecting it's own borders. The real reason it seems everyone is turning against us is because we are weak, and allow other nations to meddle in our affairs. If we start slapping some hands and at least acting like an anatomically correct human male we might get a slight bit of respect back (not that it matters anymore.)

No more kind words, everyone around the globe got of sleeping and smelled the bs coffee when 9.11. occurred. Only American people bought it fully and everyone else smelled shit.
Now wars,oil more bs and no one is doing nothing. Not here,not there.
People are just being murded at iraq as palestinians are murdered on their homeland.
I´m proud to be in and from country which has only fighted away invaders. Never attacked. And that is how it should be.
And only big countries invade smaller countries, never vica versa.
But. Maybe you will smell the coffee and getting something done. It was just so fucking bad dream to elect psycho for second term. Had to be rigged =)

Not true. Because of guns the US is very likely the most violent nation on earth, has the largest prison population due to a very hight crime-rate, doesn't respect the human rights of it poorer citizens.....universal healthcare.......and is the most materialistic, thus greedy, country also which produces the most garbage. This is why the US shouts me, me.....me!!! More, more....more!!!

The civilized world outside the USA is very different..........more polite and respectful......The US is Capitalism without a heart. newsflash

How about a day without American's?

Now I am not saying I like Bush, but one of the consequences of a government for the people and by the people is that you will occasionally get someone in office (remember he is just a MAN) that does not represent or give a damn about the little people. Around the world we are facing this challenge.

As an American I know we support every economic system around the world with our so called greed. When some one needs food, medical or funds who is first in line to help?

One thing I know is that misery loves company. If these so called nations that hate America/Americans so bad were to FIX their government (oh that’s right, they may not have the right to complain about their own leaders) so their outlet is bad mouth America.

Get real people. Though there are some things here that may make you cringe. I'd rather be living in America than any place else around this miserable world. At least I can scream if I want.

"I'm sure the Iraqi's or the citizens of New Orleans would agree with the above...freedom through DEATH.......!!!!!"

Where do I start? You go on a scarcely coherent (and unrelated) geo-political tirade then expect a laugh? The Iraqis have allowed themselves to be ruled over by mullahs and fanatical clerics who adhere to the "death to infidels" portion of the Koran--a bad combination when they try to enforce their religion in the U.S. As far as the people in New Orleans are concerned only those who relied on the government were doomed, the smart ones left town the best way they knew how:

Taking refuge in the Astrodome Thursday, September 01, 2005 Updated: 11:32 AM

HOUSTON -- NEWSCHANNEL 5 crews were in Houston as some desperate refugees arrived in a stolen bus.

HOUSTON -- Thousands of refugees of Hurricane Katrina were transported to the Astrodome in Houston this week. In an extreme act of looting, one group actually stole a bus to escape ravaged areas in Louisiana.

About 100 people packed into the stolen bus. They were the first to enter the Houston Astrodome, but they weren't exactly welcomed.

The big yellow school bus wasn't expected or approved to pass through the stadium's gates. Randy Nathan, who was on the bus, said they were desperate to get out of town.

"If it werent for him right there," he said, "we'd still be in New Orleans underwater. He got the bus for us."

Eighteen-year-old Jabbor Gibson jumped aboard the bus as it sat abandoned on a street in New Orleans and took control.

"I just took the bus and drove all the way here...seven hours straight,' Gibson admitted. "I hadn't ever drove a bus."

The teen packed it full of complete strangers and drove to Houston. He beat thousands of evacuees slated to arrive there.

"I t's better than being in New Orleans," said fellow passenger Albert McClaud, "we want to be somewhere where we're safe."

During a long and impatient delay, children popped their heads out of bus windows and mothers clutched their babies.

One 8-day-old infant spent the first days of his life surrounded by chaos. He's one of the many who are homeless and hungry.

Authorities eventually allowed the renegade passengers inside the dome. But the 18-year-old who ensured their safety could find himself in a world of trouble for stealing the school bus.

"I dont care if I get blamed for it ," Gibson said, "as long as I saved my people."

Sixty legally chartered buses were expected to arrive in Houston throughout the night. Thousands of people will be calling the Astrodome "home," at least for now."



Call it survival of the fittest or natural selection--take your pick.

Re: POLL: WORLD IS TURNING AGAINST U.S. - ANGER AT BUSH NOW HITS ALL AMERICANS
What many Americans don't realize is that this "survival of the fittest" or "might equals right" mentality is uniquely an American philosophy in the western civilized world. Other civilized countries have quality of life for all; a certain standard of living, and societies based on non-violence and kindness. There are more important things in life than getting rich. Being wealthy doesn't automatically equate with respect like it does in the US, which is why the western world outside US borders puts human rights first and is more peaceful.

New Orleans showed the world that greed is the motivating factor in American life...if you ain't rich you are nobody so we'll let you drown. stars

Now we want to "nuke" them because of "9-11". Sickening.

And no wonder the world is hating our guts.

We are being set up as the next "Nazi Germany" that will have to be taken down for the world's safety.
