Now Hear The Word Of The World : Earth Calling America ...



Short.

Sweet.

To the point.

Just hours before Bush's -- 'Sorry State Of The Union Speech'.

A double barrel blast via the BBC.

You MUST read them both.

That is all.


1./ 'Listen more' is world's message to US


2./ View of US's global role 'worse'

This poll result held no surprises for most of us - because most of us are not backward back-woods-men from the US bible belt.

Those who I'm talking about would be better off reading your previous post about the old Frenchman, than listening to the lies of the telly-evangelsits and the Bush-Faux-Christian.

Sadly, some of them actually enjoy warmonmgering, killing, etc though. For them there is no hope. "There are none so blind as those who WILL NOT see."

Sorry Richard, but the only remarkable thing I find about these articles, that they have appeared in a MSM outlet.
The articles themselves do not dig nearly deep enough, and they are severely restricted in their scope, beside they put the cart in front of the horse.
(In a bad mood, I may even characterize them as idiotically simplified and distorted.)

For me the problem is not the image, but the policies which are reflected back as bad image in the worldwide opinion about the US.
Lets just line up a few shall we?

The last 35 years the US is rapidly polarizing both socially and economically, whereis 80-85% of the population's life is either stagnatig or declining while ever more wealth is concentrating ever fewer hands. In parallel with this wealth issue, the society is loosing its essential erstwhile Democratic values, which once were driven by a vibrant middle class, and it is becoming ever increasingly a 'top-down' society.

Simultaneously with the concentration of wealth and power, we see more rampant corruption, and both more indoctrinated and more coercive society developing in front of our eyes.

This narrow elite is driving a Globalist agenda worldwide, which is the most rapacious form of monopolcapitalism, designed to maraud both the Thirld World as well as the home societies. This Globalisation is led by an International Financial Elite through their institutions such as World Bank and IMF who although masking as public institutions are in reality working for private interests, in order to indebt nations worldwide for the ultimate purpose to take control of them. The US is a de facto subordinant, who is representing these interests worldwide, and it is its primary enforcer, with a proven and documented trackrecord of brutality, such as the over 70 clandestine CIA operations of large scale and nearly ceaseless military operations from WW2, causing deaths in the tens of millions.

The US after the 9/11 false flag operation, has embarked upon to actively undermine the established International (Westphalian) System. It routinely ignores other countries' souvereignity, which it tries to control in every available option both military and otherwise.
In its wake there are deaths, destruction and widespread pauperisation follows.

Now should I be worried, that the number one rogue nation in the World has an image problem, which even the most cunningly deceptive PR machine can not reverse?

The majority of all Americans know what a jackass bushco is. Unfortunately, he cares as much about us as he does the Iraqi people. Only exxon, haliburton and cheney matter.

Here's something else on Bush, SOTU and so on. BBC again.


Bush set to focus on home front
By Iain Watson
BBC News, Washington

President Bush is expected to focus on home issues

To characterise this year's State of the Union address as President George W Bush's "don't mention the war" speech would be a little unfair.

The unpopular deployment of more troops to Iraq will not be evaded when he talks to Congress about his plans for the year ahead - but the conflict will be justified as just one element in the country's wider war on terror.

Uppermost in the president's mind will be the battles he has to fight at home, not abroad.

Recent opinion polls suggest only one in three voters approve of the job the president is doing; that is way below both President Bill Clinton and President Ronald Reagan's standing at the same stage in their presidencies.

I think you might like Graffiti Fridays, Mr. Brit. What I'd like to see is the pics display just behind Mr. Bush as he delivers his State of the Union BS.
