61% OF AMERICANS WOULD BOMB IRAN'S NUCLEAR FACILITIES
I must admit this is a surprise. Americans really get it. Now, if we only had a government as clear sighted as the people, the chances of avoiding war would have increased significantly:
A majority of Americans are skeptical that diplomacy with Iran will succeed and say the U.S. should use military action if necessary to prevent the Iranian government from developing a nuclear weapon.
A Pew Research Center for the People & the Press survey released today found 61 percent of Americans would support a military strike. Twenty-four percent said it is more important to avoid conflict even if that means Iran will end up building nuclear arms.
The survey by the Washington-based group found 63 percent support direct U.S. negotiations with Iran to push the country to abandon its nuclear program. Still, 64 percent said such efforts won’t succeed. The poll was conducted last week, when Iran held talks with the U.S. and other United Nations powers and agreed to widen discussions on the nuclear dispute. . . .
In the Pew survey, while 78 percent said they would approve of tougher economic sanctions on Iran, 56 percent said they didn’t expect the measures would persuade Iran to drop its nuclear program. The poll was conducted Sept. 30-Oct. 4 among 1,500 adults, with an error margin of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
More prove that the American people are right: It's Official! Iran Publicly Says it Fooled U.S. and Europeans in Geneva, Offered Nothing In other words, the Obama administration legitimized the Ahmadinejad regime for nothing!
