A faithful and sharp-eyed friend from the Hoosier state recommends the following article, in which the following nugget is found:
"Forty-eight percent of Germans think the United States is more
dangerous than Iran, a new survey shows, with only 31 percent
believing the opposite. Germans' fundamental hypocrisy about the US
suggests that it's high time for a new bout of re-education."
I don't know whether this is more a reflection to the abyss in which the US's reputation abroad has fallen or of nascent delusional thinking on the part of the Germans, but in any case you can find this astonishing bit of surveying here.
