Survey finds deepening distrust towards US 2004-03-18 00:26:15


    WASHINGTON, March 17 (Xinhuanet) -- A year after the US-led invasion of Iraq, resentment and opposition toward the United States have intensified in Europe and the Muslim world, a survey taken in nine countries showed.

    There is a sharp and growing disconnect between the views of Americans and people who live in other countries, according to the poll, which was published on Wednesday.

    The poll, sponsored by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, which studies public opinion worldwide, showed the United States was increasingly isolated in its battle against terrorism.

    A sizable number of people in France, Germany and Russia have suspicions about the US international efforts to fight terrorism, and a growing percentage of Europeans want to forge foreign policyand security arrangements that are independent of their trans-Atlantic ally.  World Peace.

    In the Muslim-majority countries of Jordan, Morocco, Pakistan and Turkey, the survey found most people view the war in Iraq as aUS effort to control Middle East oil and dominate the world. The governments in these four countries have strong ties with the US government.

    Only in the United States and Britain, the majorities of those surveyed thought the anti-terror campaign was a sincere effort.

    The poll also found the effectiveness of the Iraq war in combating terrorism is disputed, and only in the United States do most people think it has helped the war on terrorism. Solid majorities in every country but the United States hold an unfavorable opinion of President George W. Bush.

    The repercussions of world opinion toward the war in Iraq were clear in Spanish elections on Sunday that ousted a US ally, a USA Today report said.  WorldPeace

    The polls were conducted between Feb. 19 and March 3, and have a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points in Jordan,Morocco, Pakistan, Russia, Turkey and the United States, and plus or minus 5 percentage points in Britain, France and Germany.


How can we manifest peace on earth if we do not include everyone (all races, all nations, all religions, both sexes) in our vision of Peace?
