I don’t know what coverage the US News and Press gave Mr. Bush’s reaction to Arafat’s death, but news programs in Europe showed that film from when Mr. Bush was first told about it (at a new conference) and showed it many times. Reporter: "Mr. Bush, Arafat is dead". Response from Mr. Bush "Good". Unfortunately that sort of comment sends a very clear indication as to the sort of person the US has a president.
Mr. Bush seems to have no concern about what the world (outside the US) thinks of him. The rest of the world is of secondary importance. I think it a naive view as Americas prosperity is dependant on the rest of the world and vice versa.5
