Europeans feel threatened by U.S.
by UPI

LONDON - Thirty-two percent of Europeans said they consider the United States to be the biggest threat to world stability, a poll released Monday said.

North Korea and Iran were seen as the biggest threat in the United States, the poll done by Harris Research for the Financial Times showed. The younger U.S. respondents -- between the ages of 16 and 24 -- agreed with the respondents from five European countries polled that the United States was the biggest threat, the Financial Times reported.

Eleven previous polls going back to July 2006 have shown that between 28 percent and 38 percent of Europeans polled consider the United States a threat to world stability, the newspaper reported.

Pollsters surveyed people in Spain, France, Germany, Italy and Britain. The poll showed the greatest concern about the United States in Spain, with 46 percent calling it the greatest threat.

The poll also showed a growing European public concern with China, with 19 percent calling it the biggest threat, up from 12 percent last July. Seventeen percent called Iran the biggest threat, 11 percent named Iraq and 9 percent named North Korea.

The online poll surveyed 1,000 people in June.
