Government / Politics
English term or phrase: key societies
The recent rise in unfavorable feeling toward the United States, as distinct from animosity toward the United States, was also most marked among younger groups in some key societies. In Britain, about one in five people under the age of thirty had an unfavorable view of America in 2005, double the one in ten who said so in 2002.

  -> Thank you Sheila. I was thinking e.g. of the fact that Britain was a staunch ally during the war in Iraq.
