Clearly the recent killing of Osama bin Laden and the remaining questions as to Pakistan officials’ involvement and their knowledge of his whereabouts and activities weighs heavily on many peoples’ minds regardless of what country they reside in.

Wordspreadz, the social network for intelligent discussion has released the results of its most recent poll. The poll, conducted among the globally dispersed users of the Wordspreadz platform, asked people to respond to the statement, “Pakistan wants $1.6 billion from the U.S. in 2012 for security-related aid.”

While13% of Wordspreadz users supported this statement, an overwhelming 45% chose the response, “Cut all non-humanitarian aid to Pakistan.” A further 31% responded by saying the $1.6 billion figure was “unacceptably high.” Nine percent of respondents were undecided on the matter.

“When we prepared this international poll question we knew our users would have very strong feelings on the matter,” said Simon King, co-founder and CEO of Wordspreadz. “Clearly the recent killing of Osama bin Laden and the remaining questions as to Pakistan officials’ involvement and their knowledge of his whereabouts and activities weighs heavily on many peoples’ minds regardless of what country they reside in.”

Wordspreadz launched in spring 2011 with the objective of highlighting a specific and sometimes overlooked facet of social networking - to initiate and encourage in-depth, thought-provoking discussion about global topics and issues. Wordspreadz asks users to express opinions and offer relevant details relating to a range of continually expanding questions. In addition, the site asks its users to respond to bi-monthly poll questions on timely and serious topics. “We built Wordspreadz to serve people wishing to increase their level of involvement in discussions about global news and current social and political events,” said King.
