Increasing U.S. isolation: "It is every bit as bad as many of us suspected. According to a recent Pew survey, the global rift between the United States and the rest of the world has deepened into a gaping chasm. Among Muslim countries, the change is remarkable. 83 percent of all Turks have an unfavorable opinion of the United States, up from 55 percent last summer. In Europe, the approval ratings have improved compared to pre-war ratings but still much lower than a year before. Worse, the animosity is now reciprocated in full measure by the American public which now has a low opinion of traditional allies like France and Germany."
