Currently, Americans are most afraid of North Korea, which in the hazard rating has overtaken Russia, Iran, China and the Islamic State, the researchers of Gallup came to such conclusions after a poll conducted in the United States.


Survey: Americans consider North Korea their main enemy today


“This year 16% of respondents called North Korea the main enemy of America. Last year, this figure was 15%. Americans gave second place to Russia, in which 15%, thus, Russia began to perceive 3% of respondents better - in 2015, Russia occupied the first position with 18%. In third place is Iran, who is feared by 14% of respondents, in fourth place was China's “leader” of 2014 of the year, who, like the year before, has 12% of votes, ”the newspaper leads. Look data contained in the study.

Thus, analysts say, “for at least the past three years, the four major threats to the United States remain unchanged, only the order and degree of danger change.”

At the same time, they point out that the opinion of US citizens has become not so united as before. "The number of associates in the sense of danger from any particular power has become this year's record low: 16% in North Korea. For comparison, in 2001, the most dangerous country 38% US residents believed Iraq "- the researchers note.

The fifth line of the rating was taken by the “countries where the Islamic State group operates”. They have only 5% votes.

    You can't trust the Merikos. Nothing has changed for them. Such statements are a way to convince taxpayers that money is also needed to confront the DPRK. They will also place bases, air defense, missile defense, etc. Apparently, there are not enough funds for "cutting".

            The same thing as Vasily Alibabaevich: "Or maybe the daisy will be enough to play? I remember here, I don't remember here ..."
            Today - North Korea, tomorrow - again Russia, the day after tomorrow - China, then - again Russia, then - Iran, then - again ...!

              For us, they are always enemies.
              Even if the period of "warm" relations is one hell, they think about the collapse of our country.
              So there is no difference in what place we have them in opinion polls.

                In general, US propaganda really zombies its citizens

                Enemies for them are Russia, China, Iran and the DPRK. After that, their list includes the threat of Russia creating a Eurasian Union (Hillary Clinton: "... We know what they want and their statements will not deceive us ..." - about the statements of the EAC leaders)
                Then I don't remember the "axis of evil" - in my opinion Cuba, Belarus, and

                In fact, China and Russia pose the greatest threats to US dominance.

          But our opinions do not change so quickly. Surely 90% considered and still consider the USA our main "friend"

        Before 2003, at first there were also polls. Then they formed the axis of evil: Iraq, Syria, North Korea, Iran. And the sequence is respected, scoundrels pedantic. It is necessary to rest against our Syria. North Korea is already under our nose.

    Survey: Americans consider North Korea their main enemy today


    Again, the survey ... worthless to these surveys ... they can be customized to anything ... aliens can be designated a threat on MARS.
    The Americans are masters of creating a factory of lies ... I can’t imagine what kind of threat the SUNNY CUCHER US STATE DEPARTMENT can create the main MORDOR on our planet.

    So they control the minds of foolish people, create a fairy tale and drive enemies under it.
    HOLLYWOOD and WASHINGTON are a little in this.

    Whoever they order, they will be afraid. And then they will democratize? Or they bombed them out of fear, but they hanged Hussein?

    Americans are not interested in politics. For them, the most important thing is to take care of a fat ass. Cigarette smoking marijuana and getting drunk to drink beer with which we fixed our heads the next day.

      No wonder NN and the entire people of the DPRK, despite the hunger and hardships, created the country's nuclear missile shield. The US regime, as well as Israel, which hates it, and satellites in a region like South Korea, Japan are already "sharpening their teeth" in anticipation of the destruction of Pyongyang, but in view of the presence of nuclear weapons, they will not succeed in any case by military means.

    A good Russian proverb for striped ears is not a decree. "The eagle does not catch flies"! Why are they looking for a weaker opponent for themselves? Not solid. As it looks more and more on the TV show. With the "decoys".

    Stripes conceived some kind of dirty trick. Well, why do they need the DPRK? There is no oil! Rather, they will justify the increase in the contingent in Japan and other Asian countries, so that China does not feel calm, or else it buys debt and American business, you know. China as well as Russia imposed military bases. Moreover, they caved in before the Russian Federation for peace initiatives in Syria - now we do not consider it the main enemy. Hypocrites ...

    Depending on the American political situation, the DPRK may be replaced tomorrow by another country, and the day after tomorrow by a third, in which the United States will not like "democracy."
    This year, 16% of respondents called the DPRK the main enemy of America.

    Strange people Americans are afraid of Koreans without knowing where this country is. This is what media work means.
