But Saudi Arabia as a political entity at least has been a relatively sound ally in the region going on 3 decades now. Assisted in both first and second desert storm.
But looks are deceiving, my James Bond would, I'm sure detest Khomeini.
Great point you've made. Now I'll be looking out for this.
I'm honestly surprised Germany and the UK aren't on it. In a Donald Trump America, Mexico would move up in the rankings quickly.
Also, are there people that uneducated to think that the Middle East is one country?
Today, in light of the presidential election, some might find it cruelly prophetic.
Then you go on to say we should NEVER forget assaults on "our country." So... does that mean that you were being sarcastic? And that you think we are wrong to not hate the people of Japan today for something that their government did in the 1940s?
4. North Korea
2. United States itself
After #1 and #2 I don't think anyone out there is a genuine threat to the United States. If forced to pick somebody I guess China might be #3 but that's mostly because they have an effective government while the US does not and while their power grows America's necessarily wanes; not because of any nefarious intent.
Also the people who answered "the Middle East". Aside from thinking "the Middle East" is a single country, the most plausible reason I can think of is that people think all/most of the countries in the ME act collectively with aligned goals, which is also an amusing level of ignorance.
THE ANIME APOCALYPSE IS COMING!!!
But please don't tell Trump that his "pet" Russia remains on the list! -
I also hope we can end Russian influence and crime without going into McCarthyism.
Another reason for this might be that the USA has the capability of projecting military power and economic and political influence all over the world; they can make enemies everywhere; other countries can only do this more locally.
Maybe it means you prefer many other countries which are not in this poll results.
Well it shows pretty well how accurate their opinions are...
... could also be Russia actively meddling in elections all over the world notably in Europe, trying to bring down NATO and Western democracy, propping up nationalists and Nazis and populists and nativists and those given to identity politics and other undesirables because these people inspire disunity and strife, invading and occupying sovereign nations to redraw borders through military conquest for the first time in Europe since the end of World War 2, Putin's obvious desire to resurrect the Soviet Union, the shooting down of commercial passenger airlines, the shameless murder of numerous critics of the regime both within Russia's borders and abroad, and their support of Donald Trump who remains the single greatest threat to the present international order and prosperity of the world. Could be that, too.
