Global opposition to drone strikes

According to the Pew Global Attitudes Project 2012, global perception of U.S. drone strikes is overwhelmingly negative, with only the U.S public in favour of the strikes by any clear majority. In Muslim nations especially, American anti-terrorism efforts are widely unpopular. In 17 of 20 countries, more than half disapprove of U.S. drone attacks targeting extremist leaders and groups in nations such as Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia.
