The Wisdom of the French, or the U. S. Rejoins the Rest of the World

The Wisdom of the World. The American public is gradually joining the rest of the world in its opinion of the Bush administration. World public opinion has opposed the Bush administration's invasion of Iraq since the beginning and a current poll shows that 73% of those polled in 25 countries disapprove of the American role in Iraq.

The Dawn of Wisdom in America. After four years of fruitless war, the American public is now catching up to that heavy rate of disapproval with 67% disapproving of President Bush's conduct of the Iraq War in a Feb. 25 Washington Post poll.

The Greater Wisdom of the French. Of course, we still have a way to go before we match the wisdom of the French where 92% of the population disapproves of the American role in Iraq.

But we're learning.
