Eons?

Did you learn your history from Zack Snyder films?

Iran has one of the most activist foreign policies in the world. Whether you feel it's justified or not, Switzerland they ain't.


Iran is currently at war in at least Iraq and Syria, deeply involved through proxies in Afghanistan and Lebanon and has sponsored terror attacks all over the world including Thailand, Nigeria, Kenya, India, Saudi Arabia and Washington DC.

I'm sure Russia will move up in the rankings once Gallup does its 2014 polling.

Honestly the US is probably the correct answer.

I say this as a patriotic american.

China and Russia are closely following though.

Stronger parties pick fights with weaker parties. Human nature

I am too lazy to find stuff that contradicts this but I do find some of this surprising.
I am surprised Pakistan doesnt consider india their greatest threat. I guess our drone striking and special forces violating their boarder explains it.

This is not surprising to me. China imo is correctly viewed as a threat. the chinese of declared areas of the south china sea their own Air Defense Identification Zone (East China Sea).


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_Def...East_China_Sea)

Quote:
The East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone (abbreviated ADIZ) is an Air Defense Identification Zone covering most of the East China Sea where the People's Republic of China announced that it was introducing new air traffic restrictions in November 2013. The area consists of the airspace from about, and including, the Japanese controlled Senkaku Islands (which are known as the Diaoyu Islands in mainland China and are claimed by mainland China as well as Taiwan) north to South Korean-claimed Socotra Rock (known as Suyan Jiao in China). About half of the area overlaps with a Japanese ADIZ, while also overlapping to a small extent with the South Korean and Taiwanese ADIZ. When introduced the Chinese initiative was controversial as requirements were imposed that other countries with air defense identification zones do not impose[1] and it included contested maritime areas.[2] Critics said the move escalated the Diaoyu Islands territorial dispute between China and Japan.[3][4]

Quote:
The U.S. said it would ignore the Chinese ADIZ and disregard Chinese orders, although the Obama administration differed from Japan and South Korea in deciding to advise American commercial airlines to comply with China’s demands out of fear of an unintended confrontation.[57] A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman complimented the U.S. decision on airlines saying "The submission of flight plans to the competent Chinese authorities by airlines of relevant countries including the US shows their constructive attitude and cooperative will..."[58] The Wall Street Journal on 1 December reported that "the U.S. carriers are filing flight plans with both Japan and China. At the same time, affected routes are being modified to avoid disputed airspace as much as practicable."[59]

A U.S. State Department statement called China's establishment of the zone a "unilateral action [that] constitutes an attempt to change the status quo in the East China Sea," adding that "Freedom of overflight and other internationally lawful uses of sea and airspace are essential to prosperity, stability, and security in the Pacific. We don't support efforts by any State to apply its ADIZ procedures to foreign aircraft not intending to enter its national airspace. The United States does not apply its ADIZ procedures to foreign aircraft not intending to enter U.S. national airspace. We urge China not to implement its threat to take action against aircraft that do not identify themselves or obey orders from Beijing."[60]

United States defense secretary Chuck Hagel declared that the Chinese announcement “will not in any way change how the United States conducts military operations in the region.” He also reiterated the official stance that the US would support Japan in the event of a war with China over the Senkaku islands. [61]

The United States sent two B-52 bombers from Guam to fly through the zone on 26 November.[62] Although a Pentagon spokesperson claimed that "the planes had not been observed or contacted by Chinese aircraft",[63] the Chinese government claimed to have monitored the U.S. flight,[64] saying that while it took no other action in this case,[4] it "has the capability to exercise effective control over the relevant airspace."[65][66] The Chinese Defense Ministry also said that with respect to enforcing the zone, its military would take "corresponding action in accordance with the situation and the level of threat".[67]

On 29 November 2013, the U.S. Department of State issued a statement titled "China's Declared ADIZ - Guidance for U.S. Air Carriers" that the U.S. government generally expects that U.S. carriers operating internationally will operate consistent with NOTAMs (Notices to Airmen) issued by foreign countries but also stressed that this does not mean U.S. government acceptance of China's ADIZ requirements.[68]

On 4 December 2013, American vice president Joe Biden discussed the issue at length with Chinese president Xi Jinping.

I am actually surprised the chinese dont consider japan the greatest threat to world peace. I would have thought just off of bitterness and hatred they would choose japan.

Hey, this is Japan's ADIZ:



See how it stretches all the way to China (and Russia) for no real reason? China and Japan are two sides of the same coin here.
