Just How Scared Are Americans Of North Korea?

Zero Hedge Monday, 14 August 2017 ()
Just How Scared Are Americans Of North Korea?*Growing tensions between Washington and Pyongyang escalated dramatically this week with North Korea laying out plans to target the American island territory of Guam in a missile strike.* News reports have shown intercontinental ballistic missiles being tested that have the potential to reach the continental U.S. while intelligence sources believe the regime has now managed to miniaturize a nuclear weapon to fit one of those missiles.

Statista's Nial McCarthy points out that a CNN poll has now revealed that* increasing numbers of Americans are becoming concerned* by the threat presented by Pyongyang.

*Nearly two-thirds of those polled, 62 percent, say North Korea is a very serious threat while 23 percent think the threat is moderate. *Only 5 percent of Americans now feel the secretive communist nation poses no threat to their country.

*The poll puts the level of fear into perspective by comparing the threat posed by other states and terrorist groups.*

The so-called Islamic State or ISIS is still considered the top threat to the U.S. with 64 percent of those polled saying the threat it poses is very serious.* Iran and China are far behind ISIS and North Korea* with 33 and 20 percent of Americans considering these nations a serious threat respectively.
