Unfortunatley, the USA as the only superpower is always going to be hated and seen as a repressor.
However, it is the job of the Bush and his boys to manage this perception and unfortunately all they have done is confirm the world's perception of the US and justify the hatred.
To compound this they have been totally incompetent. Does anyone really believe that Clinton would have ignored all that intelligence and allowed it to come to this - 9/11, Afghanistan and Iraq? I don't think so, he may have had his faults but he kept a tight ship.
If the US is to redeem itself at all it needs to firstly hand over Iraq to the UN, agree to pay all UN peace-keeping costs and to declare that no US companies should profit from contracts arising out of the unjust war which the US government initiated.
It then needes to look seriously at its Middle Eastern policy, and to stand up to Israel.
An interesting point I noticed while in New York recently, was the number of Arabic immigrants. It'll be interesting to see if policy shifts when they and their children become voters, or whether the rich Jewish lobby can maintain the status quo.
