Damn! I Should Have Moved To Argentina Two Years Ago When I Sold My House

New poll shows Aussies are behind global anti-US zeitgeist... but we still don't trust the USA one bit:
Fifty-nine per cent of Australians surveyed said they trusted the US either a "great deal" or "somewhat" and the Philippines, Israel and Poland were the other staunch supporters with 85, 81 and 59 per cent respectively.

But 40 per cent of Australians answered "not at all" or "not very much" when asked how much they trusted the US "to act responsibly in the world".

But 80 per cent of Australians think the US takes on the role of international enforcer more than it should, agreeing with three out of four Americans.

Globally, the majority of respondents answered "not at all" or "not very much" when asked how much they trusted the US "to act responsibly in the world".

Eighty-four per cent of Argentinians answered "not at all" or "not very much" as did 80 per cent of Peruvians.
I think this reinforces exactly what I and many other anti-Bush bloggers have been saying for years, that the USA has been taken over by a relatively small cabal of shameless, currupt fools intent on personal profit. These people are determined to hold onto power at any expense. They will drag down the US Constitution, International Law and any other obstacles that stand in their way, whatever the cost, if they can possibly get away with it.
