How The World Views America Today- PART I

Immediately following the tragic events of 9/11, America had the Worlds attention. And it's sympathy, support and backing. Even countries not necessarily friendly with the U.S. were supportive. After eight years under the Bush presidency the World view changed dramatically. Where we once had friends we had enemies. Where we once had support and cooperation we had none. Many Americans were embarrassed and ashamed of their own country. Now a decade later it's time to catch up and take a look at how the World currently views America.

What does the World think of The United States of America? This controversial question led to a global quest for four Americans, whose thought-provoking journey through fourteen countries is documented in the “The Listening Project.” Emotional encounters with dozens of diverse and fascinating characters on all continents reveal the breadth of U.S. impact on ordinary people’s lives around the World. The result is an emotional and inspiring examination of crumbling empires, human fellowship and the meaning of citizenship in a globalized world.

  • Lol eight years under bush changed dramatically? ya a few loud outspoken countries tried condemning us. While 8 years under bush, Eastern Europe fell in love with us. Africa fell in love with us. I think it was president Kikwete of Tanzania talking about a black man becoming president of the US (obama) said he didn't care about that, He said the most important thing for them is that obama as good of a friend to Africa as President Bush had been. It is never the smartest person who is heard, but More..

  • A fair bit of harsh reality with this vid.
    I think the point that most people fail to see in the video is that peoples view on America has changed.
    This should be a wake call for all citizens in the United States to fix the system.
    One example is that the United States continues to lift the debt ceiling limit to keep from defaulting while China has been growing at a rapid pace over the last 10 + years.
    One just need’s to visit each country to see.
    I think it’s time for the people in the USA More..

    • @exoticninjaII

      Your comment might perhaps maybe have a modicum more validity if it showed that you had some class and integrity, which it doesn't. It simply gives proof as to why you might not be liked.

      And there is also a video as well as the poll. You may want to watch the video prior to commenting so as to prevent you from making a fool of yourself.

      But alas you've already done so.
