So which country do you think is the biggest threat to world peace?

Who do you think is the biggest threat to world peace right now?

Perhaps surprisingly, a lot of world countries disagree, as a new map circulating on Reddit shows.

Designed by user Loulan, the map uses data of a 2013 survey conducted by Gallup International and the Worldwide Independent Network of Market Research (WIN).

Amongst other stats, it asked people from 65 nations which country they thought to be the biggest threat for world peace.

Unsurprisingly, your opinion of who the bad guys are heavily depends on which country you live in.

A little less unsurprising, though, is that most country see the US as the biggest threat – and not, as you may first assume, Iran, Afghanistan or Iraq.

People in the US, Canada, the UK, and Romania actaully do see Iran as the biggest threat.

France considers Syria the most dangerous country of the all; for Italy, it’s Afghanistan.

But nearly everyone else is more concerned about the United States than the Middle East.

It’s no surprise Russia and China see the US as a threat, but so do a fair number of Western allies – including Germany and Spain.

Bear in mind, this is also data collected at a point where Donald Trump had not even announced he would be running for President of the United States.

After the past months, an updated map would probably look slightly different.

So, who do you think is the biggest threat to world peace right now?
