Jordan's king warns US over Iraq
Saturday 17 April 2004, 14:36 Makka Time, 11:36 GMT

The invasion and occupation of Iraq has made the United States unpopular in the Middle East, Jordan's King Abd Allah II has said.

Addressing the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on Friday at the start of an American tour, King Abd Allah said images of the Iraq invasion were spelling a public relations disaster for the US.

"They turn on the TV and they see an Israeli tank in a tank battle with ordinary Palestinians. The programme changes and they see an American tank facing Iraqi people," he said.

Growing animosity

"This has created for the first time that I have felt in the Middle East some sort of animosity that I never felt or heard about towards the United States," the monarch said.

2. As in the lead up to the invasion of Iraq
If you considered all the rhetoric between Bush and Saddam a "War of Words" it became apparent with a blinding white light of precision it was one Bush was clearly losing on the stage of world opinion

It is just a pitiful shame this was the man selected to represent the American people

I thing King Abdullah is our friend. He's speaking the truth.
A truth that Americans who are not on the internet or who've never travelled abroad are totally unaware.
