The map shows the results of 2013 (pre-Trump) WIN/Gallup International survey asking people which country they felt was the greatest threat to world peace. Due to recent Washington-inspired conflicts those who consider the US the main threat to world peace have likely soared further. 

The United States was the overwhelming choice (24% of respondents) for the country that represents the greatest threat to peace in the world today. This was followed by Pakistan (8%), China (6%), North Korea, Israel and Iran (5%). Respondents in Russia (54%), China (49%) and Bosnia (49%) were the most fearful of the US as a threat.

Interestingly, Iran was seen as the biggest threat by Americans, Canadians and Brits, but Australians viewed the United States as the biggest threat.

Regional rivalries were also common, for example, South Koreans think of North Korea as the biggest threat to world peace, and the Japanese, Vietnamese and Filipinos think of China as the biggest threat (although China views the US as the biggest threat to peace), Indians view Pakistan as the biggest threat (although Pakistan does not return the favour, instead focusing on the United States as the biggest threat) and Poles view Russia as the biggest threat to peace.

In each country, a national probability sample of around 1,000 men and women was interviewed either face to face (34 countries), via telephone (11 countries) or online (20 countries). The fieldwork was conducted from September 2013 – December 2013. In general, the error margin for surveys of this kind is +3-5% at a 95% confidence level. The global average has been computed according to the share of the covered adult population of the surveyed countries. NEWS STORY IS SPONSORED BY DAGMAR, GERMANY
