No, Boeing7E7, but it gives an indication about how the world thinks about US politics.

Now you can ask yourself: are we, 4% of the World's population, idiots for selection Bush, or is the other 96% idiot for selecting Kerry.

No doubt that by re-electing Bush, the USA will end-up being more isolated than ever since 1941.

As an example, yesterday, even small Costa-Rica said it was retiring from the so-called "Coalition of the willing" in Iraq. Not that their presence had any significance, militarily speaking. But politically, it tends to show that this invasion is really only a Bush project, nothing the world really needed.

The American people will suffer from this isolation; jobs will be lost.



Never let the facts get in the way of a good theory.

Yeah, we didn't really need to get rid of a genocidal dictator who slaughtered his own people in defiance of over a decade's worth of UN resolutions while the rest of the world sat idly by.

Just a Bush thing.

You people are cracked.

The correct answer to the question of the thread title is, WHO CARES???!!!!

Sabena690: Excellent point. Actually, though, we are the 4% of idiots who voted in Gore, but got stuck with Bush. Funny how so many conservative Americans look down on other countries opinions of US politics/actions, but are the first to back these actions. I think it's very interesting how these other countries have overwhelmingly selected Kerry, but I strongly suspect that it's because he's not GWB, not because he's John Kerry. Pretty clear the world is sick of what's going on and how it's being conducted.

To all of you who don't care about how the rest of the world would vote:

1) Do you realize that we are a nation that deals with other nations of the world, and we rely on commerce and good relations to continue our economic freedom?

2) If certain other nations of the world "liked" us, 9/11 may not have happened. Still don't care how other nations think?

But if you don't care about what the outside world thinks, then you didn't care about the overwhelming support and compassion you witnessed exactly three years ago, right?

NoUFO, don't be too insulted. I'm sure Germans don't really want American input on whom your leader should be. I suspect you only want Germans to decide that. That's the way it should be. If it makes you feel any better. I don't give two-shits about whom the people from the 49 other states feel the governor of Indiana should be. Nor do I care about whom the other 5,000,000 people from Indiana think the mayor of Fort Wayne should be. See how that works? No offense to anyone.

Yes, but the governor of Indiana and the mayor of Fort Wayne don't affect the world and its politics and economy, and try to pursuade other countries to send troops to die in Arab countries as does the "leader of the free world". No offense, but it doesn't seem real hard to me to figure out why citizens of the world might have an opinion about who they would like to see as U.S. president.

Yes, but there is always a factor that Americans easily like to forget: the fact that the US is a superpower means that the decisions taken by the Administration (in this case Bush and his entourage) have an influence on our life too.

Why should an American care about the next elections in Belgium (heck, do most Americans know what Belgium is?). Elections in Belgium don't have influence on US politics, but US elections do have an influence on our country.

Ah, you can sense the wit. Yes, we know where Belgium is. We liberated it.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

And you make a good point really as to what this is all about ultimately. It's an inadequacy/fear/envy/what have you that America has some mystical influence over you. Truth is, can you quantify how our actions affect your life? Specifically?

I'd be curious to hear how. Sincerely.

Were those polled tested, as to whether the information they were using to make their decision was fact or fiction? Most of the things I hear from people from outside the U.S. regarding the President are completely false. It is also interesting to note that the same sort of venom was spewed forth regarding Ronald Reagan.

I am certain that, if exit polling was conducted after, say, a German or French, or any other nation's election, and people were asked to rank their reasons for choosing the person or party that they did, that the opinions of foreigners would not even rank. So, why are people in the United States, who do not consider the opinions of foreigners a top consideration in their voting decision, "supercool never-surrendering macho-rightwing Bushiwhiners?"

(did I forget something?) --- yes, you did! With comments like that, you make your self out to be nothing more than the mirror image of what you are trying to make others out to be. Some of us in America would say "same sh*t, different pile." You also miss the point that, the irritation is due to the fact that, while the US is ordered to keeps its nose out of other people's business, the rest of the world seems to feel free to attempt to meddle in our affairs at will. When we surrender our sovereignty to the EU or the UN, or whatever, then feel free to weigh in. Until then, to use a British colloquialism, p*ss off!

External opinions are still relevant and welcome. Although it was quite irregular that the US ambassador publicly demanded before the last Bundestag elections that the german population vote out the Schröder administration. That did indeed cross several lines and probably contributed to Schröder´s victory.

Quite a few people felt reminded of soviet ambassador to the former GDR Abrassimov regularly declaring "big brother´s" demands...

Certainly I'm not naive to think the US doesn't have an impact...my question was specifically to Sabene to outline HOW the US affects his life in Belgium.

I've traveled to 4 continents, half of Europe included.

And if you want to talk about fear, then be careful lest your tongue be forked. You weren't afraid of having mad dictators on your doorstep earlier but now you're afraid of a nation that has traditionally acted in an amazingly just way throughout it's history of being a superpower. And again, the descriptor "unilaterally" is thrown out there. I guess you're forgetting about those dozen or so UN resolutions? Scores of nations that sent troops? Dozens that still stand by us?

If the world wants to see true unilateralism, all they have to do is keep being appeasers, and they'll see the TRUE meaning of unilateralism soon enough.

Fair enough, TWFirst, but Americans are far more affected than any other therefore outside opinion should have no bearing on the outcome. As far as simply making their opinions known, of course there's no big deal with that. First of all, I did hear about this poll already, so some US outlet did report it. But honestly, I don't think it would have much influence. People vote almost exclusively their homes, families, wallets, not the impact on Belgium or any other European city*.
