"For people and governments across Asia, four more years with George W. Bush in the White House promise global warming and rising Muslim insurgencies
but also free trade pacts and jobs, Asian analysts said Thursday.
Governments in the region that are allied with the United States rushed Thursday to congratulate the winner of the US presidential elections. And
business leaders said his promotion of free trade bodes well for jobs in India, China and Japan."
"Terrorism experts meanwhile warned that unless US foreign policy changed, particularly in the Middle East, the United States risked fanning the
flames of Muslim insurgencies in the region.
If policy does not change, Bush's re-election will mean that "the war on terror will continue to be complicated and problematic, given the huge
anti-Bush sentiment that we are seeing in the Muslim world, and particularly in this part of the world," said Andrew Tan, a security analyst with
Singapore's Institute of Defence and Strategic Studies."
Well, everything has a good side and a bad side...I guess.
