Seeing Americans

Salon: How the World Sees Americans

A very interesting interview (from Nov. '02) with a journalist who interviewed people all over the world about what they think of the US. Two key points: Americans don't listen to the rest of the world, and Bush squandered the massive international support that the USA had post 9-11 with his "with us or against us" and "axis of evil" remarks. The invasion of Iraq has helped even less.

Obvious, but all the more worth repeating as a result.
