There was a really neat article on the major fallacies Americans believe in when it comes to foreign countries, and I can't find it :/ My google-fu is weak. The article was addressed to Americans in particular and actually made me realize the rest of the world ISN'T out to kill us. Yeah I know. We're told that everyday by our media so it's hard to not believe it.
It was on a blog site, and I think it had a list of 10 total things. It wasn't on cracked.com I think, but not sure. :I
