The Sky Is Falling? Uh Huh

A rather comprehensive study/poll on attitudes towards America and the war on terror both from the U.S. POV, and the world's. The bit that jumped out at me was this one:

A growing number in Western Europe also think that the United States is overreacting to the threat of terrorism. Only in Great Britain and Russia do large majorities believe that the U.S. is right to be so concerned about terrorism. Many people in France (57%) and Germany (49%) have come to agree with the widespread view in the Muslim countries surveyed that the America is exaggerating the terrorist threat. [emphasis mine]
