Poll: Bush has made the world more dangerous

Global poll slams Bush leadership
"More than half of people surveyed in a BBC World Service poll say the re-election of US President George W Bush has made the world more dangerous. Only three countries - India, Poland and the Philippines - out of 21 polled believed the world was now safer. The survey found that 47% of the 21,953 people questioned now see US influence in the world as largely negative, and view Americans negatively as well. On average across all countries, 58% of people - and 16 out of 21 countries polled - said they believed Mr Bush's re-election to the White House made the world more dangerous."

If only 59 million Americans thought like the rest of the world. Sigh...
