It's Bush, not the Americans the world hates! (II)

Reader comment on item: [Symposium:] Why Does the World Hate America?

Submitted by Rob Riedijk (Netherlands), Feb 18, 2003 at 15:20

...The US has a long history of violence. Violence is in the US community much more common for solving disputes than elsewhere in the civilised world. Possession of guns is normal like it is in the countries belonging to the famous "Axis of evil". Apparently using violence or war is not the way the majority of rest of the world wishes to solve differences of opinion and political issues. Taking the huge amount of worldwide peace demonstrations into consideration, there can only be one conclusion: The US of George W. Bush is taking the wrong path. In order to convince the American people of his policies the rest of the world should start a massive boycot of the USA. Not to hurt the American people or businesses but in the hope that the American voter chooses a more competent leader next time. Should Bush' leading the peaceful Americans into a reckless war not be a reason for a rapid impeachment procedure? Many people worldwide including numerous US citizens are convinced that Bush represents a greater danger for worldpeace, prosperity and progress than Saddam Hussein. In the end further inspections and containment of Iraq as well as stopping the Israeli atrocities against the Palestines will make a better world and reduce terrorism. The tragic conclusion is that war in the Middle East will promote terror and not deal with its deeper political causes.
