watch CBC The National tonight

they are doing a special on America

how do people around the globe feel about the most powerful nation on the planet?

the CBC is talking to nine other broadcasts to get a "global" perspective

it should be interesting...and slightly controversial...which is always good for the mind!

Oh cool! BBC are also broadcasting this...I think it's being filmed from the War Rooms in London. There are quite a few interesting people being interviewed in London for it.

i'm wondering if perhaps PBS will broadcast it here in the states.



or maybe if it's a violation of the patriot act.

keep in mind, naysayers, that it will not necessarily be a bad slant on america.

no doubt the french will have choice words though

lol, well I just watched most of the BBC show and it sucked. It could have been really good as they had some excellent people interviewed, like Clare Short, for one. Only they made it completely simplistic and it was just dull as a result.

I watched it too, and agree with Fizz. Though I liked the Palestinian guy (I never saw who he was ) and the guy from Newsweek International.

I think the Palestinian guy was Saeb Erekat (sp?) and he's the chief Palestinian negotiator, or something like that. I saw him speak at a Palestine demo last year too.

*Fizz posts gratuitously because she doesn't like the number 13 and doesn't want to leave her post count at 13* (yes, i'm a freak, thank-you for asking)

I listen to BBC radio at night on pubic radio. They had a segment on this last night. I get bbcAmerica on my cable tv. They are not broadcasting it. That is too bad

America has 5 percent of the world’s population. America uses 40 percent of the world’s resources. What the world thinks of us is important.

exactly, but it seems apparent that people don't care what the rest of the world thinks about you. That was one point brought up last night in a poll, and as is evidenced by ouizy's post above.

It actually wasn't as bad as I thought. Canada is one of the biggest supporters of America though a majority do not find Bush favourable. In fact, almost all places do not like Bush.

I was surprised to see Brazil's distrust in america. They were almost on par with the mid-east in some polls!
Of course, Jordan absolutely dispises the U.S.

two areas in which the whole world seemed to agree was:
-That America in arrogant.
-That America military might is misused or that they are a danger to the world.

I forget all the poll results...but they are posted at www.cbc.ca

America should definitely pull its military out of all the countries we are in policing and keeping the peace.

We should see what happens.

It could be fun.

It could also be a massacre.
