Top 10 Most Hated Countries in the World

– [Briggs] What is going on, everyone? Welcome back to "The World
According to Briggs", and a list about the most
hated countries on the planet. Yeah, people hate different countries. Several different organizations
do different surveys on what country is the most
hated or disliked on the planet. Reputation Institute, Pew
Research does this thing called attitude towards
different countries. I looked at all the different
surveys that I could find and I came up with a list of
countries that most frequently show up on these studies or surveys, whatever you want to call them. There are a lot of different reasons people from other countries
may hate another country. It could be things that
happened in the past or now, it could be for economic
reasons or military reasons. For whatever reason, people hate. It's just a fact. This is a very interesting list. I've found some on the list, they really haven't done anything horrible in decades and decades, but people hate them going back hundreds and hundreds of
years, it's really strange.

All right, let's see what people say are the most hated countries. (electricity crackles) – Number 10, Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia is an oil rich
country in the Persian Gulf and everyone's heard of Saudi Arabia. This place is highly
dominated by religious laws and go all the way to medieval
punishments like stoning, lashing, amputation for thieves, women really get a raw deal here, too. With lack of most freedoms
that we take for granted here in the United States, that are just part of our normal life. I was reading some of their laws and thinking why would they
stop a woman from doing that? One of their laws that just baffled me, which I knew about it for a long time I just thought it was strange, started reading about it.

Was women, when they go outside the home have to cover themselves from head to toe, including their faces. And they're not allowed
to go any place alone. They have to take a
male relative with them, could be a brother, could
be their husband, whatever. I'm sure that it gets old
quick for both the woman and her brother, who every time
she's gotta go to the store, and if her husband's
working, she gotta call her loser brother to come over
and escort her to the store. They got a whole bunch of other reasons that rub outsiders the wrong way here. And that's what gets
them on lists like this. Most tourists will tell you to stay away from this place because it's kinda boring to visit. (electricity crackles) – Number nine, Turkey. Turkey has had a love-hate relationship with the world for centuries. Turkish people are great,
I know a few of 'em, all of 'em are wonderful people.

What's putting them on the list, according to several sources
is their current government. And actually their past government, when they were the Ottomans. When you go way back, Turkey is hated because
of the Armenian genocide. The massacre was carried
out by the Ottoman Empire and resulted in the deaths of 1.5 million people, Armenians mostly. If you don't know the Ottoman Empire, it's probably 'cause you're
from the United States. We kinda just brush over
it in our world history. But the Ottoman Empire was
basically big in this area and it all came from Turkey. And I just totally broad
brushed that again, but give you the idea
what's going on there. Although the massacre is widely known, it is still denied by
the Turkish government. It's like, they know it happened, everyone else knows it happened, but if they don't admit
it, it didn't happen.

It's weird. (electricity crackles) – Number eight, Iran. I know many Persians, I've worked in Beverly
Hills for a lot of years and it's filled to the brim with Persians. Like Turkey, the people
are kind and decent, very smart and friendly. It's their government. It supports terrorism around the world, has horrible human rights record, keeps threatening the world with nukes and it likes to piss off
the most powerful nations on the planet. The people are great though. And it's not just the United States they like rubbing the wrong way, everyone.

If you're a major power in this world, Iran's gotten under
your skin at some point. (electricity crackles) Number seven, India. If any country excels in
discrimination, it's India. This is one of the main
reasons people hate this place. The Indians believe that hating you for your color, race, gender
is perfectly a normal thing. Now I'm not saying all of 'em, this is just a general feel. I'm sure you could run into
a lot of really nice Indians. This, as you can imagine, puts a bad taste in a
lot of people's mouth and it kinda keeps 'em
away from visiting India. The country isn't safe,
especially for women. They are cracking down on this, but it isn't terribly rare to find out that some woman was
attacked by a group of men. For a while there, it
seemed to be happening like every week. I mean, brutal stuff too. Not like touching on the
bus or something like that, it was ugly.

On top of that, they
aren't the best neighbors to other countries around them. They have a really bad
reputation for that. (electricity crackles) Number six, the United Kingdom. Yes, believe it or not, the United Kingdom is hated by a lot of people and it's not so much
as what's going on now, it's they have a terrible past. it's thought by many around the world that the UK is extremely greedy and it ruled about a quarter
of the earth at one point. It was one of the first in the world to bring in a slavery system. It encouraged civil wars, oppressed and looted many countries and is responsible for the division and destruction of several countries in different continents around the world and still involved in
most of the major wars that happen on the planet. But if you go way back, I mean, look at anything to do with history, especially here in the United States, you could tell England was kind of, they were kinda a-holes. And the arrogance they had
back in the day about it was just incredible.

One of the best scenes,
there's a movie called "Last of the Mohicans" and Daniel Day-Lewis
is this scout woodsman and this British officer, he saves him. And then he's all, how
is it you came across this war party of Native Americans that were attacking the British? And he goes, well, we
were headed to Kentucky. He's all why are you heading to Kentucky? All of our scouts are
heading to someplace else. And he goes, well I
ain't one of your scouts. I mean, the British officer's demeanor was like, what do you mean? He's all, yeah, I'm just
not doing that stuff. Great movie though. One of the reports I read, there's a big problem with the British.

Obviously they were in
India for a very long time and I don't know all
the ins and outs of it, but it seems very interesting, but it's a little more time consuming than I wanted to get into. They say the UK destroyed India and ruined its education system. What'd they do, like
steal all the teachers? What went on there? I gotta read about that. (electricity crackles) Number five, China. China has a lot of people and they execute a
staggering amount of 'em. They have forced labor camps, ugly history and cheap exports. They've been accused of
currency manipulation and have decided that the island
of Taiwan belongs to them. They're always, something
going on between those two. Some of their low cost products
include medicine and food. On a few occasions, they've
decided to use materials that are less expensive so
they could drive up profits, make the product cheaper. The downside is this
has caused some deaths. That type of thing has gone
on for decades with them.

So many times, they found out some toy that was inspected before, all the sudden they switched it out to having lead-based paint
or something like that because it's cheaper, on a kid's toy. As you can imagine, all those things have gotten them on this list. (electricity crackles) Number four, Israel. Israeli people and the Palestinian people have been going at each other's throats for decades and decades. They fire rockets at each
other from across the border, the politics and the drama
that has gone on here for, like I said, decades and decades
is just far too complicated to cover in a 10 minute video.

But whenever you have warring neighbors, the one that's usually
doing the most damage is the more powerful one,
which brings on a lot of hatred and that's part of Israel's problem. I mean, there's a ton that goes into this, but basically the war that they've had with the Palestinian people and the fact that there are Jewish nation surrounded by Muslim nations, probably doesn't help matters either. (electricity crackles) Number three, Russia. Russia has a history of being
aggressive to its neighbors, not just in military
terms, economics, hacking, forcing a bunch of countries
to join the Soviet Union and before you say it,
yes, some went willingly.

At least the people in
charge went willingly, it's really hard to find average Joes from the old Soviet Union that were on board with
this whole operation. Russia likes to create conflicts between major nations of the world, which is designed to be
beneficial to Russia. They like to kill people
that disagree with them, no matter what country the
person happens to be standing in. You know, like Russians go someplace else, they've been talking to the media bad about Russian government and next thing you know they've
been poisoned with uranium or something weird like that. They're, right now, in the news because they have jailed
an opposition leader that's been on a hunger strike. This isn't the first time
they've done that either. All those things and some other things make Russia one of the most
hated countries on the planet. (electricity crackles) Number two, the United States of America. Yeah you heard me, my
country, our country, if you're watching from the United States, is the second most hated
country in the world.

Now it's hard to believe
if you're from the country, much like if you're from Russia, you're probably wondering
why people would hate Russia, that's just how things are. We're kinda designed to be that way. The United States of
America is hated by many because of its vast
military and economic power over the rest of the world
and that's just a fact. We've been involved in so
many different conflicts, which have just angered
people from the areas and in the countries that
the conflicts happened in. They're in a lot of cases
wondering why we got involved. You would probably have to
go back to the Korean War and World War II to find a time
that we were truly justified by going to war there and the people were probably
happy with it 90% of the time, I mean the people from those countries. But considering we've been
involved in all these conflicts, we are one of the wealthiest
countries on the planet and we have the largest military, it's hard not to be hated by Third World countries because of that.

There are so many other things
for all of these really, not just the United States,
but for all these countries, there's thousands of other reasons people might hate that country. And I'm sure we're gonna see a lot of 'em in the comments section below. Keep in mind before you
tell me I forgot something, or I didn't include somebody,
this a 10 minute video, I'm not gonna get to everything. I'm just kind of giving you an idea, but it is a very interesting subject and it's worth doing some reading on. And before we get to
number one, don't forget we have another channel
called "On This Day". There is a link down below.

We'd love it if you went over there, watch a couple videos, maybe subscribe. All right on to number one. (electricity crackles) And number one, North Korea. Who didn't see this one coming? You know, when you put as
much effort into hiding what is going on in your
country as North Korea does, you know what's going on isn't good. North Korea has been a big
pain in the ass to everyone for a very long time. We know their people are
starving, jailed, executed, they disappear in the middle of the night and they're subjected to an
insane propaganda program.

They're told that their leader doesn't have to use the restroom because he works so hard
for the North Korean people that he burns off all
the calories he takes in, so he never creates any waste. They also tell the people of North Korea that he has to take phone
calls from other countries to solve problems that other
countries can't figure out. They also have their own
Netflix knockoff called Manbang. I'm not kidding, it's called Manbang. I don't even know how to explain they came up with that name, but it doesn't mean what it
sounds like to Americans. I'm sure it means something
different to them. This is a streaming service
that has three channels. Two of which are government news channels filled with nonsense and one channel that shows government
approved movies only.

Those who live in the country suffer from restrictions of freedom, as their internet access
is heavily censored, poor infrastructure,
low standard of living. And the reason they're all poor and their infrastructure is crumbling is because they put all their
money towards nuclear weapons. This is an obsession with
the North Korean government. It threatens the world with nuclear war, like on a weekly basis. They have an aggressive attitude towards neighboring countries and this has caused them
to be pretty much isolated from the rest of the world. And people go on to believe
that they're just totally evil, which I'm sure the people are just fine. It's just their government
is just whacked. The outside world knows very little of what's going on in North Korea. Every once in a while, we'll
get someone that defected over. They finally got out of the country and they just tell us horrible things.

I remember there was this soldier that jumped across the
border not too long ago, he was starving. He had seeds from trees in his stomach that he just couldn't get enough food, so he was actually eating these big seeds that weren't digested
and it was kind of sad. (upbeat music) All right, that's today's list. Hope you guys got some
information out of it, hope you guys enjoyed
it, it's kind of weird. And it's really weird to
have to say that yeah, the United States is one
of the most hated countries on the planet, I love my country.

It's just I had to go
by what the survey said, trying to give you guys the
most accurate information I can, don't hate the messenger. All right, everyone have a great day. Be nice to each other..
