Anti-Americanism On the Wane In The Muslim World...

The frothing at the mouth Muslim terrorist lifestyle just does not hold as much interest for the typical MTV indoctrinated individual in Pakistan and Indonesia these days. So with attitudes changing in these far-flung places, what do we have to do to get those Germans and French to like us?... I personally thin that European are close to a hopeless case, but the Muslim world is finally realizing that we do more for their liberties and quality of life than most of the worthless Europeans.... Want to spend weeks negotiating?... Call an European. Want to get a job done?... Call an American.
Released today, the poll commissioned by the nonprofit organization Terror Free Tomorrow and conducted by Pakistan's foremost pollsters ACNielsen Pakistan shows that the number of Pakistanis with a favorable opinion of the U.S. doubled to more than 46% at the end of November from 23% in May 2005. Those with very unfavorable views declined to 28% from 48% over the same period. Nor is this swing in public opinion confined to Pakistan. A similar picture is evident in Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation. Again that's largely because of American generosity in the wake of a natural disaster. A February 2005 poll by Terror Free Tomorrow showed that 65% of Indonesians had a more favorable opinion of the U.S. as a result of American relief to the victims of last December's tsunami. If these changes in Pakistan and Indonesia influence thinking in other countries, then we could be looking at a broader shift in public sentiment across the Muslim world.
So would you rather have a head-in-the-sand German or French at your side when the chips are down, or a take action oriented American? On a side note, in battle, I would choose an Israeli or British soldier at my side. I think that they would see things the same way.
