    Worldwide Poll: US Is Biggest Threat to Peace Read Latest Breaking News from Newsmax

    The United States is considered the greatest threat to peace in the world, says WIN/Gallup International's annual global end-of-year survey.

    America was named the biggest threat by 24 percent of people surveyed, followed by Pakistan with 8 percent and China with 6 percent; Iran, North Korea, Afghanistan, and Israel were tied at 5 percent.

    "The world's sometimes eager, sometimes reluctant policeman is the subject of widespread animosity. Predictable in some areas (the Middle East and North Africa), but less so in others," the BBC's world affairs correspondent, Paul Adams, said of the findings.

    At the same time, though, the poll found that the United States, Canada, and Australia are the countries where most people would like to live if they could.

    The survey was conducted in 63 countries during October and November using a variety of methodologies, including online, face-to-face, and computer-assisted telephone interviewing.

    Worldwide Poll: US Is Biggest Threat to Peace

    The US seen as the greatest threat to peace... Hmmm.. I can understand why. But also people mostly want to live here the most. I can also understand that as well. One thing we can get from this poll is that the US foreign policy really isnt winning the hearts and minds of the people from around the world.

    Sure. Everything operates smoother when it is balanced, you would agree? A balance of power is no different.

    Greed is the biggest threat to peace and the US is the greediest country in the history of the world so that makes sense to me.

    Better question: Why should I care what the "rest of the world" thinks?

    They are no less self-interested than we are. You're frankly fooling yourself if your think they have anyone's best interests in mind other than their own when they make these kinds of statements.

    They'd gladly watch us all burn if it meant that they had the opportunity to take our place.

    The U.S. is one of the most successful and materialistic countries in the world. Part of the reason for our success comes from our form of governing, resources and being a leader in innovation.

    As with any great good we're capable of big errors. I think our gov spends too much time and wastes too much effort/money policing the globe in our strategic interests. We're far from all bad and currently a huge asset in the global economy.

    This is what happens when you have a history of spraying agent orange on people.
