The new Pew global attitudes survey of 47 countries came out June 27. Just one quick observation: guess what world region has the most favorable opinions of the US? Guess what world region has never been the site of an American military intervention? I’ll take Sub-Saharan Africa for 500, Alex.

(Except for Somalia, that is. But Somalia wasn’t on the survey, and I’d bet it would be a case of an exception that proved the rule, in the correct sense of the idiom. That is, it was the site of an American military intervention, and the US is probably not very popular there.)
