Europe sees US as ‘greatest threat to stability’

And we rank ahead of …..


And China.

Via the Financial Times:

Europeans remain deeply suspicious of US foreign policy in spite of President George W. Bush’s concerted attempts since the start of his second term to improve transatlantic relations.

In a Harris opinion poll, published on the eve of Mr Bush’s latest visit to Europe this week, 36 per cent of respondents identify the US as the greatest threat to global stability.

The poll, conducted in association with the FT, questioned a representative sample of 5,000 people in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain on a range of issues. Thirty per cent of respondents named Iran as the greatest threat to global stability, with 18 per cent selecting China.

So not even the threat of a resumption of nuclear activity on the part of the Iranians, not to mention the threat to cause the US “harm and pain” can convince Europeans that the Jew-hating country is more of a ‘threat to stability’ than we are? I could understand us getting on that list in and of itself, considering Europe seems to hate the US, but to make it to the number one slot? Unfreakingbelievable.
