    The BBC emphasised that its poll is not a representative sampling of world opinion, but only of opinion in Australia, Brazil, Britain Canada, France, Indonesia, Israel, Jordan, Russia, South Korea and the United States.
    Open your eyes.

    Get out of your shell.

    And for God sakes get over it.

    I think Serpent has some type of American penis envy.

    uhh.. I don't really see the point of this article. I'm sure most americans already know that ppl look down on them. And those who do look down on them know that the americans don't really care. (and looks down on them )


    I sense a huge political thread of this ****.. I'm outta here

    Let's make a distinction here between American people and the American government (executive branch especially). I just got back from 1 month in Thailand where I spoke with many Thais & Europeans about the face the US shows to the world. There was near unanimous agreement - American people & many private American organizations (charities, ngo's) are generally well liked. The American government, Bush especially, is not well liked. He is seen as an arrogant, spoiled cowboy. And I was pleased to learn that many people around the world know that lots of Americans share that view.

    Number one is that a lot of Americans do not share that viewpoint. So you were just misleading them or if you want to cut straight to the point just downright lying. Many Americans support president Bush and his adminstration.

    Check out the polls. Support is still very strong.

    What is "many" anyway????

    Daddy Bush was ahead in the polls right up until election day. Hopefully, history will repeat itself.

    Forget America. What does the world think of Pitcairn Isand? That's the burning question that needs to be answered.

    And while we're at it we need to keep a closer eye on those South American pygmies. I don't trust those little f*ckers, either, hiding as they do in their rain forests. Perhaps it's about time we scrape the rain forests from the face of the earth so we can see what those little runts have really been up to...

    So sayeth Budokan.

    Now, Spark, do you really think the media would lie about something like that? The media? C'mon....they kept us so informed throughout the war. Why, I didn't even see one dead American on TV, so I know we must have kicked @ss.
