A few days ago Worldwide Independent Network and Gallup released the results of a survey that they had recently conducted. It was an annual end of year survey in which residents in over 60 countries were asked a variety of questions. One of these questions was “Which country do you think is the greatest threat to peace in the world today?”. For anyone with a sense of humanity and decency the result should not be that shocking, yet the internet is buzzing with stories and articles in relation to the results of this survey. I was not at all surprised to see that the United States of America came top of the list. I expect many people assumed there would be a similar outcome. The results of the poll show that 24% of those surveyed believe that the US are the greatest threat in this world.
