Global poll slams Bush leadership


Here's a litle excerpt:

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% now viewed US influence in the world as largely negative and such unfavourable feelings extended towards Americans as a whole.

Rewind a little to the part that says Philippines. Did I hear that right? Now isn't that shameful? At least from where I come from, Bush is viewed as not doing a good job. How many people who knows the real issues loves Bush's foreign and domestic policy? Perhaps it's skewed because the poll assumes everybody in the survey Filipinos included know about the real issues. I would assume there are those in the poll which do not understand half of what happened, what is happening and what all this leads to... If the poll is correct and not pre-arranged to show allied positions - that much mentioned RP-US Mutual Defense Treaty then fine. Away with any conspiracies. This much tells me that our media does not seem to educate the people as best as it should about world affairs.

That saddens me this much. Wake up people!
