United States voted the greatest threat to world peace – poll

Obama

US President Barack Obama

The US has been voted as the most significant threat to world peace in a survey across 68 different countries. Anti-American sentiment was not only recorded in antagonistic countries, but also in many allied NATO partners like Turkey and Greece.

A global survey conducted by the Worldwide Independent Network and Gallup at the end of 2013 revealed strong animosity towards the US’s role as the world’s policeman. Citizens across over 60 nations were asked: “Which country do you think is the greatest threat to peace in the world today?”

The US topped the list, with 24 percent of people believing America to be the biggest danger to peace. Pakistan came second, with 8 percent of the vote and was closely followed by China with 6 percent. Afghanistan, Iran, Israel and North Korea came in joint fourth place with 5 percent of the vote.

The threat from the US was rated most highly in the Middle East and North Africa, those areas most recently affected by American military intervention. Moreover, the survey showed that even Americans regard their country as a potential threat with 13 percent of them voting the US could disrupt global status quo.

Latin America expressed mixed feelings towards its northerly neighbor, with Peru, Brazil and Argentina all flagging the US as the most dangerous country.

After its numerous threats of a strike on Iran, many countries voted Israel was the biggest threat to prosperity. Morocco, Lebanon and Iraq all chose Israel as the number one danger to world peace.

In the survey participants were also asked: “If there were no barriers to living in any country of the world, which country would you like to live in?” Despite being the perceived largest threat to world peace, the US still topped the tables by a narrow margin of 9 percent.

In general 2013 saw a drop in approval ratings for the Obama Administration. A poll conducted by the AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research revealed that 50 percent of those asked thought that the political system in the US needed a “complete overhaul.”

In addition, 70 percent of Americans believe the government lacks the ability to make progress on the important problems and issues facing the country in 2014.”

The survey comes two months after the first government shutdown in 17 years in the US which cost the country an estimated $10 billion.

The American government’s credibility was dealt a blow earlier this year when President Obama made a call to strike Syria following a suspected chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government on civilians. The American public and the international community both opposed the action.

  1. Of course the US is the greatest threat to peace world-wide… with a military budget (notice I did NOT say “defense”) that is greater than the next 12 countries combined, what did you expect??? We have the “biggest gun” and act like an international bully. America has become world-class in only one category. Congratulations (sarcasm) on the accomplishment – at least you come in at “Number 1″ for something. Too bad it ISN’T (a) Education (b) Employment (c) Philanthropy (d) Productivity (e) ingenuity or any of the other topics which might actually be a BENEFICIAL CONTRIBUTION to humanity.

  2. The biggest threat to world peace is the US/Israel/Saudi /Quatar with their European allies but all these governments are corrupted by criminal multinationals & lobbying..The Bilderberg should be on that list too,I strongly believe that Chemical hoax in Damascus suburb was an Saudi-Bandar & Mossad job and possibly all recent car-bomb dexplosions in Beyrouth..these politicians are mass murderers with a permit with the brainwashing help of “mass media””propaganda!

  3. Considering 911 was an inside job to wage war on Irak & Afghanistan with obvious partners such as Saudi-Arabia,Israel…Actually the objective is to destroy Syria to weaken Iran or maybe push Saudi Arabia/quatar & Israel to intervene themselves in Iran,The bombings in Beyrouth are provocations .France has been rewarded for its non diplomatic attitude,it’s open support to the terrorist groups and push for war with a several billion dollar arms deal(selling arms to the Lebanese army paid by Saudis)…Most big European armement companies have joint-ventures with Quatar & Saudi-Arabia…The angle is who benefits from hight priced crude oil & war(s)…I would suspect the US of Strategic Chaos (if not permanent chaos)…in oil production areas,encouraging sunni-chiites divisions as much as to counter China & Russia— A very dangerous game where a million Irakis have died.. and that is not a detail!…i nearly forgot Depleted Uranium..The NSA spying is a threat to Human rights!Americans must react before it’s.too late.

  4. Maybe a bit of hyperbole, but not that far off. Sad days for those who used to be proud of the US
