These countries are planning something big against America. Check out who is behind it.

Despite the U.S. trying to make numerous nuclear negotiations with Iran, tensions between the two nations have soared to a new high. Iran is completely antagonistic to the United States in the current scenario and as a matter of fact, Iranian leaders are even known to chant “Death to America ” in their public speeches.

“We’re going to take out seven countries in 5 years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran”, reported Wesley Clark, a retired 4-star U.S. General, in a recent interview. You’re probably curious to find out more about each individual enemy the U.S. has but there’s a stark contrast between the list of countries that detest the US the most and the nations mentioned before. Some of those countries have even less favorable views of the U.S. So which are these countries ?

No. 3 – Asia

 Few nations in Asia, like Pakistan and Malaysia, with predominant Muslim population also have significant unfavorable views of the U.S. as they empathize with other Middle Eastern Muslim communities. Pakistan also shares a border with Afghanistan, which is marked as a region where part of the US War on Terror is being fought. Due to this reason, Pakistan ranks third highest in the list of nations of strong disapproval towards the United States. The country ranks U.S., at 62%.

No. 2 – Russia

“Russia is the only country in the world with the nuclear capability to destroy the U.S.”, according to Mark Milley, U.S. Army Chief. The General claims Russia to be an existential threat to the U.S.

The country that stands second in list is Russia. After Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014, America led a series of sanctions against Russia. Russia now finds itself in the midst of a recession for which is accuses the U.S. and Europe sanctions. Russia also has a tight grip over its media, which weighs heavily on public opinion, and regularly vilifies the US. Few years ago, Russians rated the U.S. at 51%. Now the rating has nosedived to a staggering 15%. Russia’s receding economy has further marred U.S. perceptions in countries with strong business-ties to Russia, like Venezuela and Argentina.
