The U.S. Image is Falling Further in the Eyes of the World

The social ills
that underlie
American society
are profound
and sad.
–Asahi Shimbun

A Japanese editorial speaks of the “North-South” problem inside the United States. It calls for the president to address the gap between prosperity and poverty as a matter of global stability.

The editorial also notes that the image of the U.S., damaged by the Iraq war, is even further diminished by the deadly delay in responding to Katrina. The connection of poverty and race in the U.S. is now a matter for all the world the see, according to the editorial in the Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun.
