Spaniards say US is the biggest threat to global security: Opinion Poll, survey


A new opinion poll indicates a fall in the US popularity in Spain, where half of the population holds the United States as the biggest threat to global security.

The results of a face-to-face survey conducted by Russia Today TV station said 51 percent of the Spaniards questioned “What country poses the biggest threat to global security?” answered, “The United States.”

Sixteen percent of the participants saw Israel as the No. 1 threat to peace in the world while 12 percent picked NATO.

The survey, which asked 1,200 people in Spain on April 5-7, 2012, found only four percent selected North Korea, one of former US president George Bush’s choices for “axis of evil.”

Spain counts as a major US ally in Europe, yet the United States is not popular with the Spanish people due to Washington’s support for the country’s dictator Francisco Franco during the Cold War era.

Anti-US sentiments in Spain have also been further provoked by Madrid’s contributions to the Washington-led wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
