And The Opinion Market Closed Up This Period
This is good news:|
And from the LA Times, no less. Of course, they did throw this in at the end (emphasis mine):
[...] The percentage of people holding a favorable impression of the United States increased in Indonesia (+23 points), Lebanon (+15), Pakistan (+2) and Jordan (+16). It also went up in such non-Muslim nations as France, Germany, Russia and India.
It is good news, though, published in Max Boot's commentary column rather than as news. We'll take what we can get. I wonder if this will appear anywhere in the NY Times, or the Washington Post? Well, will you look at this! WaPo came through!
[...] Of course, public opinion is fickle, and there is still a lot of hostility toward the U.S. out there.
Actually, this is really, really good news. It shows that bin Laden, scum that he is, was correct when he purportedly said When the people see a strong horse and a weak horse, they will support the strong horse. We are the strong horse. But there are many furlongs remaining, and the race is ours to lose.
Update here: Not once in either of these articles did I see the word 'squandered'. Things are indeed looking up!
