America In The World: Cameron launches new pro-America site

#1
Large numbers of British citizens consistently and inaccurately think the worst of America

For the launch of AmericaInTheWorld we commissioned a special opinion poll of nearly 2,000 UK citizens

The first part of our survey would suggest that large numbers of Britons think America is a land where polygamy is legal, where you don't get emergency medical care if you are poor and where there is more racism than in Europe. Britons also think that America provided Saddam Hussein with a large share of his weapons when, in reality, Russia, China and France were responsible for most of the arms exports to his Iraq. On all of these questions Britons are wrong. There may be many genuine reasons for anti-Americanism in Britain and around the world but a leading cause would appear to be ignorance.

Will this redress the balance?

He could start by being less deliberately disingenuous. Conventional arms came from all over the place, including US, GB, FRY as well as Russia, China and France. Most of the WMD, delivery systems and related research material can't be attributed to those three.

Strikes me as yet another political attempt to 'shape' public opinion in the desired way. In other words, spin.
