Bush policies are beginning to make everyone very angry.

This could be the fall of the great empire.

And no one can dispute that US is behaving like an Imperial State.

Rome fell in a similar way.

Like past Emperors, President Bush is interfering in other pepole's affairs even when they are no threat its security.

He is forcing deocracy down their throats when they choose to live by some other systems like Communism, Islamism, Buddism, Zenism, Taoism, or whatever.

Republicans are generating anti-American hatred across the world.

Im not just talking california here. Whole Earth is starting to detest the American war because of what Bush family has done.

When 5 000 000 000 people don't like you becuase of what the dude in white house is doing, then its time to get that guy out of the white house.

Bush loves to take pre-emptive action to launch military attacks on nations.


Thse are shocking surveys.

do not get over board, the rome empire lasted a long time before it fell. like the american/english one will. yep everyone hates them, but they will be here for a while yet.

also the fact that so many people hate them, probably ffeds there egos a bit, don't you think. they have so much power, and no one in this world can stop them.

I thought they hated our birds. Anyway, i do not believe they hate the United States, or Americans in general. I believe they hate our policies. I agree, the world was revolted when Bush appeared on the horizon.

I think there is a global conspiracy going on to bring down the United States.

I dont have hard evidence.

Its just a gut feeling.

If you mean "Stop the Monster", yes, i agree. The world perceives us in a very negative view.
The world in general is not a stupid place where they are going to allow one nation to rule and bring unwanted "Democracy" to all. Iraq was better off with Saddam, evil as he was, because he was one of "theirs". We jump here and there threatening, rattling other countries cages, what can we expect? Harmony?

Can we expect an attack? YES. Will we know where the attack came from? NO.
As it stands right now, were there to be an attack, even Americans would think it was a domestic thing. This is what happens when you lose trust in your government.
So, yes, we can expect some kind of attack in the near future. Do onto others.

I think you should differ a litte. The poll was about world peace and security and you can not expect europe ppl to be as hmmm how to say this political correct..closed eyed as half of the americans.

You pretty much summurized in your first post how bush made the world unsecure.
Bush's way is the way you create enemies and for sure this is everything else then helpfull to create a peace in the world.

He created real threads to america which will play out in the long term. Bash and Bang politics is a timebomb bomerang. Simple lession always ignored again from them in power.
And america also faces an almost equal danger enemies bush also contributed a lot to:
english.pravda.ru...

I think america is on the best wy to destroy itself at a high speed rate.
Europeans do not hate americans, they just shake their heads in disbelive about the americans way of selfdesturction.

but even they will do an about-face when the outsourcing from US businesses
goes to others like S Korea & Costa Rica instead of the home of "Bollywood"

right now India is on the USAs
list, and is thought to be the heir apparent
to replace Japan as the regional 'attractor' & regional power...
because India has already been 'allowed' to go nuclear with Americas' blessing.

....................

as far as the US 'Empire' falling

i would disagree,
i see the US as presently assimilating the Northern half of the Western Hemisphere
= consolidating Canada & Mexico into its Empire for now...expanding the security & defense perimeter for the supposed benefit of each nation...

don't you recognize how the 'many' will be tantalized and ultimately misled by the promise of 'Peace and Security' ((by the 'Beast'?))

First of all, polls are a joke. Since when should the Great USA form its international policy, or any other policy, around a poll? Ooooohh, a European poll? That must be nice! *barf* I guess since Clinton.

Secondly, to the rest of the freakin' planet, "I fart in your general direction!"

Well, Mr C, you surely present a bleak picture. If you will note my signature, I am looking forward to January 20, 2009, which is the last half day of Geo W’s 2nd term in office. As a counter to the life tenure of kings of the 18th century, it must have seemed to our FFs that a 4 year term was quick! Hardly enough time to do much mischief in the late 1700s.

I’m now advocating a Constitutional Convention to update our old document. I'd eliminate the electoral college which is why we have Geo W anyway; adopt a unicameral legislature and require run-off elections where any candidate fails to poll a majority and ban all private monies in public elections. And more.

From the BBC story: “Sharp declines in the public perception of the US were particularly apparent in India, Spain and Turkey. Goodwill towards the US had fallen from 71% to 56% in India, from 41% to 23% in Spain and from 23% to 12% in Turkey. A majority of people in 10 of the 14 countries outside the US surveyed said the war in Iraq had made the world a more dangerous place . . “

All this does make me wonder whether or not the so called 19 hijackers of 9-11 were working alone or were backed by some foreign US hating nations.

its very possible that those who detest the united states could have planned this.

remember mr Ata and other members of his gang met and planed in europe.

i wouldn't be surpised if it turns out that Germans or Czecks had some hand in this.

there is a lot of anti-american feeling out there. and it only takes secret services of one or two nations to carry out something as big as 9/11. when people are jealous of you, they will do anything to harm you. envy, revenge, money, are all motives for a criminal or terrorist activity. the polls show that across the world, arabs as well as non arabs have plenty of motives to dislike Washington.

Jealous on what? Europe is not a third world country. Economicly they stand better than america.
Also you seem to miss that the europe-america relations wasn't that bad before bush was president.
Do you think 9-11 was orchestrated by countries in europe to make europeans hate america? 9-11 was the one event that dragged the whole planet on the side of america despide of the rather world closed bush administrations politics.
At that time the US gov had all the opertunities for a real close world united friendship. But they choose an unhealthy we are the world police and do everything we like course bang bang war politics. For every war americas gov started after 9-11 they claimed self defence some on very wacky unproven and later falsified arguments. 9-11 was a door opener for the americans gov's long planed war politics. For some in the administration this event was exactly what they have needed. Think about it: 9-11 was certainly orchestrated by someone that benefit on this. Osama does not. Europe does not. So who? If you wonder who orchestrated 9-11 dont look that far.

Can any American on here imagine how much better off he or she would be if the United States did not spend $500-$600 billion a year on War and the Weapons of War? How many teachers, doctors, nurses, librarians, scientists and so on that could buy? How much of our infrastructure could be replaced and updated. How many of our housing - 40% is over 50 yeas old - could be updated or replaced? We could have the good life as in France, Austria, Germany and etc. if we were smart enough. How many children in Darfur we could feed? Or their parents could feel safe for one time in their lives?

It’s a matter of choices. A matter of priorities. If we were smart enough.

You mean spent on security and the tools needed to ensure our future properuity?


How many teachers, doctors, nurses, librarians, scientists and so on that could buy?


We have enough of these folks already and spend more then ever in each of these directions. Librarians? How old are you? I don't mean to sound all crappy about it, just that libraries seem more obsolete then this new computer I'm using...


How much of our infrastructure could be replaced and updated. How many of our housing - 40% is over 50 yeas old - could be updated or replaced?


Updating these homes and renovating them is a necessity being met by our entrepeneur class. It's one of the many things our citizens have the freedom to go into and suceed. You want the government in charge of everything but they don't do anything right!


We could have the good life as in France, Austria, Germany and etc. if we were smart enough.


So we'd be better off with twice the rate of unemployment we currently enjoy and a permanent sense of helplessness because we gave everything away to the government?


How many children in Darfur we could feed? Or their parents could feel safe for one time in their lives?


Since when do we have to care about them? You HATE that the US has anything to do with the rest of the planet but we still have to put the rest of the world on our gov't dole? They've been there 1000's of years and are living exactly up to their own standards.


It’s a matter of choices. A matter of priorities. If we were smart enough.


Exactly. A little bit of consistency would be great. The world would know what to expect. Everyone counts on the US to be the most charitable nation the planet has ever known and no-one wants to except any responsiblity for themselves. Sound like the bunch of socialists that they are.

I think you've pretty much just summed up these "I hate America" survey's, people have begun to stop seeing the line between 'the US Government' and 'the US people'.

For example if you were to ask someone in the street, "what do you think of when I mention America", they are more than likely going to say, Iraq, Bush, burgers and oil.
The positive aspects of the USA are being over shadowed by the negative aspects such as Iraq, the war on terrorism, and that not so wonderful leader Bush.

Tarnished image

America's image continues to suffer throughout the world as the war in Iraq drags on, according to a recent poll by Pew, the Washington-based independent opinion research group.

The survey of 17,000 people in 15 countries showed America's general favourability falling sharply.

British approval of America has slipped nearly 20 percentage points (from 75 per cent to 56 per cent) since 2002.

The US presence in Iraq was often cited as a greater danger to world peace than Iran's nuclear ambitions, while in 10 of the surveyed countries the majority said the Iraq war made the world more dangerous.

Respondents lacking confidence in President Bush doing the right thing in world affairs:

Spain: 90 per cent

France: 85 per cent

Germany: 72 per cent

Britain: 68 per cent

Russia: 65 per cent


Respondents with unfavourable views of the US:

Spain: 73 per cent

France: 60 per cent

Germany: 60 per cent

Russia: 47 per cent

Britain: 33 per cent

This could be the fall of the great empire.

Is the US an "empire" because the last time I looked the US did not hold or rule extensive lands outside of their borders, which would be the normal definition of an empire (q.v. British Empire, Roman Empire et al)



And no one can dispute that US is behaving like an Imperial State.

What are the normal behaviours of an Imperial State, because apart from arrogance here and there, I don't see "imperial" in the actions of the US.



Rome fell in a similar way.

And how did Rome fall then? The fall of the Roman Empire was protracted and complex and I fail to see many similarities with the US!



Like past Emperors, President Bush is interfering in other pepole's affairs even when they are no threat its security.

Surely all powerful nations do this! The Cold War was a good example of nations being manipulated.



He is forcing deocracy down their throats when they choose to live by some other systems like Communism, Islamism, Buddism, Zenism, Taoism, or whatever.

I am not sure the US (or the civilised West generally) is forcing democracy down anyones throats. The only people who like being communists, islamists etc are those in power who work to keep their population ignorant and passified. The fact is that many nations are run in ways that do not work to the benefit of the population... It is not a coincidence that if you live in a democracy you are better off, better educated, healthier etc...



Republicans are generating anti-American hatred across the world.

Im not just talking california here. Whole Earth is starting to detest the American war because of what Bush family has done.

When 5 000 000 000 people don't like you becuase of what the dude in white house is doing, then its time to get that guy out of the white house.

Anti-Americanism is an issue, but it is more complex than the removal of the psycho Sadam. I myself have serious problems with US "free" trade hypocracy. Of the 5,000,000,000 who "hate" the US/Bush how many have access to a free press and how many are fed a diet that portays the US as a country of ruthless and brutal etc...



Bush loves to take pre-emptive action to launch military attacks on nations.


So what. I for one am pleased that the psycho Sadam is gone and the nutters in Afghanistan have their backs to the wall. I think that the UK and France get involved in more military scrapes than the US...

Sorry to be so picky.

New survey:


British, like the Europeans Russians and Chinese, hate the United States.



Bri tons tire of cruel, vulgar US

Britons tire of cruel, vulgar US

Sun Jul 2, 11:12 PM ET

LONDON - People in Britain view the United States as a vulgar, crime-ridden society obsessed with money and led by an incompetent president whose Iraq policy is failing, according to a newspaper poll.

The United States is no longer a symbol of hope to Britain and the British no longer have confidence in their transatlantic cousins to lead global affairs, according to the poll published in The Daily Telegraph.

The YouGov poll found that 77 percent of respondents disagreed with the statement that the US is "a beacon of hope for the world".

As Americans prepared to celebrate the 230th anniversary of their independence on Tuesday, the poll found that only 12 percent of Britons trust them to act wisely on the global stage. This is half the number who had faith in the Vietnam-scarred White House of 1975.
