Pew global survey: The most anti-American country in the world is…
Hotair ^ | 01/12/2013 | AllahPundit

If you look only at the topline question it's a tie between Jordan and Pakistan. But don't look only at the topline question. Click around in the left sidebar at the link and watch how some of the numbers change as you get into specifics --- opinions of American democracy, American business, etc. When you get to American technology and scientific advances, even a near-majority of Pakistanis (47/27) have a favorable opinion. There's only one country where anti-Americans outnumber pro-Americans on every single question. Here's a hint: We're duty bound by treaty to come to their defense if they’re attacked.

While you're there, compare the numbers for “American ideas and customs” to the numbers for “American music, movies, and television.” Hmmm.

Surprising how favorable French opinion is.

It's also funny how many other countries have greater confidence in our President than we do.

I'm rapidly becoming not one of them. I appear to be on the opposite trajectory from our First Lady in my opinion of our country.

I find remarkably little to view positively in modern American Ideas or Media, for instance.

You do realize of course that a majority of the Moslem population in Pakistan is considered to be heretical by most of the Moslem population in Pakistan ~ they are, so to speak, the French of South Asia.

This nation is run by looters for the benefit of other looters who throw crumbs to the moochers so they vote.

Why should we have a high opinion of America? I don’t fly the flag anymore, not out of treason, but out of loyalty to what we used to stand for.

EACH OTHER! There are lists and maps that display quite graphically the divisions in Islam in Pakistan. They become quite real from time to time with one group murdering and burning out another one.

I can't argue with a word of that, Tea Party Terrorist, though I'm more inclined to say we have a feral government of the government, for the government, and by the government.

Where are South American countries in the survey? I would bet very few would top 10% except Chile. I doubt there is a more anti-American country anywhere in the world than Argentina.

If you count the 60 million who voted against America and the other 50 million who didn’t but are happy about it.....

Many aren’t even aware they’re anti-American, because they have no idea what America was founded on, including the content or meaning of the Declaration or the Constitution.

What this survey tells me is that we should just go bomb hell out of Jordan, Pakistan, Egypt, and Turkey and we should take back every dime we ever gave those islamic bastages.

The French have long been fans of America, Americans, and American culture.

We really ought to appreciate them for being the longest-term, allies we’ve had.

Right, you cannot buy love or respect. The US should quit trying.

I don't believe in foreign aid in principle. What is the end game to supporting these regimes? In the case of Egypt, Turkey, and Pakistan, decades of aid have resulted in "election" of islamic dictatorships in every case. Not only are the people against the US, so is the government. They are all real strategic enemies of the US. Even the fellow NATO member state Turkey.

Jordan is an ally, but only as long as the current regime retains power, and their hold on power is very tenuous.

A good find. http://www.pewglobal.org/database/?indicator=6&mode=chart

Very odd that they included Japan, which showed the highest approval, but left out Israel,

It is interesting that Germany, France, Britain, the Czech Republic, Italy, Brazil, and Spain all have a greater % of people who have confidence in the U.S. President than those in the US. Part of which may be our critical nature,..
