Gallup Poll: World Agrees, US Empire is Biggest Threat to World Peace

A Win/Gallup International global survey that has been conducted every year since 1977 has, at the end of 2013, once again found that the world sees the biggest threat to peace as the USA.

The USA tops the list by a HUGE margin, with 24% of the world choosing the USA as the biggest threat.

The next highest country (Pakistan - a US ally and top recipient of US tax money) received 8% of the vote.

Iran, who 20% of the heavily propagandized US population is made to believe is a threat, is viewed as a threat by 5% of the world.  The disparity illustrates how hard the US elite class is working to manufacture US (and world) public consent for its ongoing 60 years of imperial butchery of oil and natural gas-rich, geo-politically important Iran, which has included US complicity in murdering over 1 million Iranians.

65 countries spanning the globe were polled, with 1,000 people randomly polled in each country.

If you still believe the propaganda myths that the US empire is out to help, not rob and suppress, others, let this poll make you rethink your willful delusions.

Here are some of the reasons behind the poll results:

Mass murder, assassination, terrorism, repression, authoritarianism - that's the US empire.  Of course it's the biggest threat to world peace. 

Deconstruct the US empire!
