America is now seen as a threat to world peace by its closest neighbours and allies, according to an international survey of public opinion published today that reveals just how far the country's reputation has fallen among former supporters since the invasion of Iraq.

Carried out as US voters prepare to go to the polls next week in an election dominated by the war, the research also shows that British voters see George Bush as a greater danger to world peace than either the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-il, or the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

I wonder why.

You’re so wishy-washy vowe. I wish you’d really tackle the issues of the day!


But seriously. I was a kid when Reagan took charge: he scared me, even as an eight year old. Bush Snr. freaked me out, but only cos of the teeth (that coming from a BRIT!) and the world-weary cynicism. Oh, then Clinton came along, but you know, there was a little hope—even if he did come on a dress.

However, Bush jr... Bush jr... there’s a man who really scares the shit out of me. How can anyone so stupid get to the position he has? Ye Gods.
