In 2013, Gallup Poll and Worldwide Independent Network made a survey of 66,000 people around the world and ask them questions such as their preferred home and the greatest threat to world peace. Twenty four percent identified the United States as the greatest threat, followed by Pakistan at 8%, China at 6% and Afghanistan at 5%. At the same time, it is noteworthy that the survey found the United States was also the country that they  wanted most to move to.

In the survey, Americans considered the US was the third greatest threat to world peace after Iran and Afghanistan, and tied with North Korea.
