U.S. Seen as Threat by Allies
Posted on Nov 3, 2006
A recent set of polls conducted in Britain, Canada, Mexico and Israel found a majority of people there believe the U.S. has made the world less safe. In the British survey, George W. Bush was seen as a greater threat to world peace than either Kim Jong-il or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The United States is seen as a threat to world peace by its closest neighbors and allies, with Britons saying President George W. Bush poses a greater danger than North Korea’s Kim Jong-il, a survey found on Friday.
A majority of people quizzed in three out of four countries polled also rejected the March 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
The findings came just days before the U.S. mid-term congressional elections, with a growing number of U.S. voters wanting their troops in Iraq to be brought home.
