Iraq: not good for our prestige, either

Well it’s probably not news to most of my readers, but according to the Pew Global Attitudes Project it seems our country is liked less and less these days (HT: Dan Froomkin):

America's global image has again slipped and support for the war on terrorism has declined even among close U.S. allies like Japan. The war in Iraq is a continuing drag on opinions of the United States, not only in predominantly Muslim countries but in Europe and Asia as well. And despite growing concern over Iran's nuclear ambitions, the U.S. presence in Iraq is cited at least as often as Iran - and in many countries much more often - as a danger to world peace.

Emphasis added by yours truly. Yet another reason to get out of there as quickly as possible.
