How The Rest Of The World Views America

So I've been reading some posts from around the world and decided to post some here , just to remind or enlighten us Americans how the world is viewing us and our country currently. They are sometimes humerous, and the majority of the time dead-on correct. Here are just a few.....

" You Americans are the scum of the earth, as you spread the devil's work around the world. The world will be a happier and a safer place when China unleashes it's military might on your shitty nation, nuking all 280 million of you to oblivion. What a day of celebration that will be!---(Madrid, Spain)

" I think America has gone mad. America has entered one of it's periods of historical madness, but this is the worst I can remember: worse than McCarthyism, worse than The Bay of Pigs & in the long term potenially more disastrous than the Vietnam War. The reaction to 9/11 is beyond anything Osama bin Laden could have hoped for in his nastiest dreams. As in McCarthy times, the freedoms that have made America the envy of the world are being systematically eroded. The combination of compliant U.S. media & vested corporate interests is once more ensuring that a debate should be ringing out in every town square is confided to the loftier columns of the East Coast press. The imminent war was planned years before bin Laden struck, but it was he who made it possible. Without bin Laden, the Bush junta would still be trying to explain such tricky matters as to how it came to be elected in the first place; Enron; it's shameless favouring of the already-too-rich; it's reckless disregard for the world's poor, the ecology & a raft of unilaterally abrogated international treaties. They might also have to be telling us why they support Israel in it's continuing disregard for UN resoultions. But bin Laden conveniently swept under the carpet. The Bushies are riding high. A splendid new generation of nuclear weapons is in the pipeline, so we can breathe easy. What war do the Americansthink they are supporting is alot less clear. A war for how long, please? At what cost in American lives? At what cost to the American taxpayer's pocket? At what cost in Iraqi lives? How Bush & his junta succeeded in deflecting America's anger from bin Laden to Saddam Hussein is one of the great public relations conjuring tricks of history. But they swung it. But the American public is not merely being mislead. It is being browbeaten & kept in a state of ignorance & fear. The carefully orchestrated neurosis should carry Bush & his fellow conspirators nicely into the next election. Those who are not with Bush are against him. Worse, they are with the enemy. Which is odd, because I'm dead against Bush, but I would love to see Saddam's downfall-just not on Bush's terms & not by his methods. And under the banner of such outrageous hypocrisy. The religious that will send American troops into battle is perhaps the most sickening aspect of this surreal war-to-be. Bush has an arm-lock on God. And God has very particular political opinions. God approved America to save the world in any way that suits America. God appointed Israel to be the nexus of America's Middle East policy, & anyone who wants to mess with that idea is a.) anti-semitic, b.) anti-american, c.) with the enemy, & d.) a terrorist. God also has pretty scary connections. In America, where all men are equal in His sight, if not in one another's, the Bush family numbers one President, one ex-president, one ex-head of the CIA, the Governer of Florida, & the ex-governer of Texas.----(Paris, France)

" Sad little Americans...just cry to your mommy. Oh your little egos are bruised! I see that your VP is now in the shit! 2000 G.I.'s dead for Bush's oil war...You should be soooo proud! Boo hoo hoo fucking whiners! Go tell someone who gives afuck! You voted for him, you deal with him!!!"---(Amsterdam, Holland)

" Funny that you simple minded fools think that you are doing something by not buying products from a country that's opposed to the war in Iraq. Keep drinking the Kool-Aid fools! Your leaders are going to jail for numerous crimes & still think they are gods! You show the same delusional love as those who followed Jim Jones all those many years ago!!!!---(France)

"You Are Being Manipulated, America!--New York Times names Vice President Dick Cheney in Valerie Plame CIA leak! Says Cheney told his Chief of Staff, Louis Libby! Do you see what they are doing, folks? They are E A S I N G the American people into the possibility that the Vice President may have been indicted! If they E A S E you into it, then maybe you wont move to destroy the goverment when the shit hits the fan & indictments come out. You are being MANIPULATED, America. Deliberatley manipulated by the media, in cooperation with the goverment. You see, if they ease you into the wrong-doing then you wont have a strong, knee-jerk reaction when the truth comes out. You know the truth, right? The truth that more than 100 dedicated , loyal American CIA Operatives around the world were KILLED after this name was leaked. The truth that the name was leaked as POLITICAL RETALIATION for the CIA Manager's husband- a U.S. Ambassador- daring to publicly dispute the factual basis of the Iraq war. You see if you HAVE that knee-jerk reaction, then some of you might get it in your heads to run some of these people out of Washington,D.C.-right now- on the wrong end of guns; & they simply cant allow that. So you have to be stroked. Massaged. Prepared...gently. Methodically. This way, when you find out the leaders you elected are lying, murderous scum, you wont go kill their sorry asses-which is exactly what they deserve! Enjoy the massage , America, because the hideous, murderous, truth will hit by Friday of this week. Bush & Cheney, along with a whole host of other high ranking goverment people ( about 28) have been criminally indicted by a federal grand jury in Chicago!---(Germany)
