While some that are aware, like myself, you say seem to think we dont give a damn....you are correct in a small way, its not that we dont care about what bush is doing from blind alligiance, its more that we dont care what the rest of the world thinks because many of us feel tired of being spit at, demonized, threatened, and treated like we owe the world something.
We were not globally hated untill the war with Iraq turned into a cespool of idiocy. There were a few countries in the Middle east who hated us, but other than that, well, we were pretty much considered the big brother to the world. If you want other countries to stop hating us, then tell your fearless leader to quit invading everyone who he deems an enemy of the state. Soon, we wont have any allies left.
For my 30 year time of being aware of the news and world events, i can tell you now, that as a kid, i was affraid of the threats comming out of the mid east from the hostage crisis onward to now (more fear than against the Russions)...911 only solidified the idea that there is an ideology and places filled with people that desire me, my nation, and my way of life to become extinct.
In my 32 years of being aware, the only thing that ever scared me about international relations was a nuclear war between the US and Russia. The end of the cold war was a very scary time for a child. We were being prepaired for nuke strikes at least once a month. Learning how to hide under the tables and where to get clean drinking water. At no other time in our history did I ever feel threatened except for when Bush took office and began his chatholic crusade agianst his infidels.
