In their annual End of Year poll, researchers for WIN and Gallup International surveyed more than 66,000 people across 65 nations and found that 24% of all respondents answered that the US “is the greatest threat to peace in the world today.” Pakistan and China fell significantly behind the United States on the poll, with 8% and 6%, respectively. Afghanistan, Iran, Israel and North Korea all tied for fourth place with a massively lower 4%.
It’s no surprise really is it? Other countries only try to blow themselves or their neighbours up. Other countries pretend they are going to blow up other countries or talk wildly about it. America doesn’t just talk about blowing people up, it travels to far flung pockets of the earth and actually kills civilians en masse. It sort of makes sense for us to be terrified of them really. Highest gun ownership in the world, most expensive and advanced military hardware… gulp. I’m gald we’re mates with them… for now.
