Brits to Bush: You're The Threat

Tony Blair might be his poodle, but the Brits are none too fond of George Bush:

British voters see US President Bush as a greater threat to world peace than either the North Korean leader or the Iranian president, according to a poll.

The international survey by ICM for the Guardian newspaper in Britain and publications and newspapers in Israel, Canada and Mexico, exposes high levels of distrust in US policy.

In Britain 69% of those questioned believed US policy had made the world less safe since 2001, with only 7% thinking action in Iraq and Afghanistan had increased global security.

Results also showed opinion against the Iraq war has hardened strongly since a similar survey before the US presidential election in 2004.

In Britain 71% of voters said the invasion was unjustified, a view shared by 89% of Mexicans and 73% of Canadians.
Right after the 2004 elections, it was hard to argue with the Daily Mirror's cover above.

Two years later, look at where we are: Iraq. Katrina. Torture. Habeas Corpus. Civil rights violations. Abramoff. Corruption. Scandals. Record deficits. After all that's happened since, it's even harder to argue with it now.

Hopefully come Tuesday, we'll redeem ourselves somewhat.
