    US is the greatest threat to world peace: poll

    January 5, 2014

    The United States is the greatest threat to world peace. That’s the finding of an end-of-the- year, WIN/Gallup International survey of people in 65 countries.

    Of the 66,000 people polled, just under a quarter named Uncle Sam as the greatest threat to world peace.

    Other menaces didn’t even come close: 8 percent named Pakistan, putting that country in second place, while 6 percent named China. A mere 4 percent found Iran threatening — which tied it with Israel.

    As we were reading the results, we couldn’t help thinking we had seen it all before. And when we looked, we found a 2006 Pew Research Center poll of 17,000 people from 15 different countries that found something very similar: More people thought the US intervention in Iraq a threat to world peace than Iran.

    How does one square this with the US constantly talking on behalf of the world? “The international community thinks/says/etc.”?
