The U.S. Is The Biggest Threat To World Peace, According To A Poll


Lucy Nicholson / Reuters

The U.S. emerged as the greatest threat to world peace, followed by Pakistan and China, in the End of Year global survey conducted by WIN/Gallup International across 65 countries in the world.

Of more than 66,000 people surveyed the world over, 24% of respondents believed that the U.S. was the greatest threat to world peace. Pakistan and China got eight and six percent of the votes respectively while Iran, Israel, North Korea and Afghanistan tied for fourth place with four percent of the votes.

Pakistan’s respondents considered the U.S. as the biggest threat, even above India which is traditionally perceived to be its rival. China too, voted for the U.S. as the greatest threat, followed by Japan.

A majority of Russians voted for the U.S. as the biggest threat at 54%.

Primarily Middle Eastern and North African countries affected by U.S. military intervention considered the U.S. as a threat.

However, even the country’s allied nations viewed the U.S. with suspicion: 17% of Canadians placed both Iran and the US as the biggest threats, while 37% of Mexicans voted for it as well.

Even neutral Switzerland considered world peace to be most likely threatened by the U.S.

However, the same survey found that U.S., Canada and Australia are the countries where most people would like to live if they could.
