    I'm surprised to see Germany on the dislike side. It is close though. I realize there seems to be much anti US sentiment globally.
    Just do what the US says, world. It ain't that hard to get along with us. 😛

    I am not so sure about not being hard to get along with the US considering amongst other things the self proclaimed role of world police, based on WW2 success. Us in South America had a hard time with uncle Sam.

    But that does not stop anyone from loving you Americans. 🙂

    Of course I was being a bit facetious. I can see why some countries and peoples might not like us. 🙂

    Those French surrender even their long held hatreds.

    It's usually this business of being hypocritical.

    "Don't do that!" while we do the same thing behind the scenes.

    How we fill government positions (in agencies that are supposed to be regulating corporations) by hiring people who used to be on the boards of corporations in those fields; banking for treasury, food or pharmaceutical companies for the FDA, etc.

    And last, but not least, the way we swoop in and decimate the governments of nations and then pick up and leave, leaving those countries to whoever proves strongest to take control of the government themselves, making an even bigger mess than before we went in. Iraq and Libya, most recently.

    I like the French. I often make fun of them too. 😕 I have some of the nicest online friends from France. Some well known racers and chess players. Not many cowboys there though. 🙂

    A bit surprised that China, North Korea and Iran didn't make the 'haters' list.

    The US, China, Iran, and N. Korea make up "The Square," a little known 4 nation coalition of lunatics. 🙂

    Actually the poll is not transparent. What where the question asked?

    Then you should open a big bottle of champagen if the 10th most critical country is actually 51% in favour of you. That would mean that only NINE countries do see you unfavourable all in all.
