Listen to you. Your post only confirms what I said. You have so much to whine about it took two posts to express yourself. Not to mention the obligatory negative talking points you add to each blog thread. Seek help. Or at least add some lights and some fresh paint to your basement. You seem really depressed.

It climbed from seventh place last year, ahead of France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Japan which completed the top five nations in the Nation Brand Index (NBI).
“What’s really remarkable is that in all my years studying national reputation, I have never seen any country experience such a dramatic change in its standing as we see for the United States for 2009,” said Simon Anholt, the founder of NBI, which measured the global image of 50 countries each year.

Oh, dear.

These results are very much in line with the survey released in July by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, which found a vast improvement in views of the United States since the election of President Obama.

Obviously, international support can change, sometimes rapidly, and the White House may very well pursue a policy in Afghanistan that undermines some of the goodwill that’s reflected in the data.

That said, for those who hoped to see America’s standing improve with the change in administrations, we appear to be taking steps in the right direction. And for those perennial whiners like brian lee, well, now they have even more to whine about.

China is remote controlled by China because US is floating because of the US treasurey bonds China bought.

US Superpower? BS
