The greatest danger to world peace

The Guardian reports on a survey of Britain, Canada, Mexico, and Israel showing respondents consider George W. Bush a greater threat to world peace than North Korea’s Kim Jong-Il. Only Israelis consider the invasion of Iraq justified; in the other countries, significant majorities believe it unjustified.

Mr Bush is ranked with some of his bitterest enemies as a cause of global anxiety. He is outranked by Osama bin Laden in all four countries, but runs the al-Qaida leader close in the eyes of UK voters: 87% think the al-Qaida leader is a great or moderate danger to peace, compared with 75% who think this of Mr Bush.
