Poll: Americans Not Eager to Attack Syria

While some lawmakers, including Sen. Bob Corker, republican of Tennessee, senior Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and Rep. Eliot Engel of New York, senior Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, are pressuring President Barack Obama to take military action against Syrian President Bashar Assad, Americans are not excited about the prospect of a new war.

According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted Aug. 19-23 and released Sunday, about 60 percent of Americans said Obama shouldn’t intervene in Syria’s civil war, while only 9 percent favored action.

More Americans would support U.S. intervention if the use of chemical weapons were to be confirmed, with 25 percent in favor, 46 percent opposed. But an Aug. 13 Reuters/|Ipsos poll asked the same question and got responses of 30.2 percent in support of intervention to 41.6 opposed.

U.S. military assets in the region are being intensified, but no decisions were announced after an emergency White House meeting that included Vice President Joe Biden and top defense, intelligence and diplomatic officials.

    No We the People don’t want to attack Syria. We don’t even care for the Pres that is causing the whole world such a problem.

  2. Diane L Kearny says:

    Why are we getting involved in foreign entanglements. Seems the dems were so quick to attack Bush for those Iraqi WMD's which actually were gas related as per the killing of Kurds but now Obama is considering doing the same in Syrian and no one seems to be doubting him. Mind our own business.

    lets get into IRAN and stop the subterfuge here. eyes are off the BALL folks.

  5. Alan Kardon says:

    Since when does Barack Hussein listen to the people he represents?

  6. Obama will attack Syria for the only reason any nation should ever go to war: people are making fun of him and laughing at him behind his back.

  7. Let us not forget that Assad has threatened to try to destroy the city of Tel-Aviv with missiles if NATO or outside nations got involved militarily in Syria. Israel has warned Assad that Damascus would be destroyed in return. I’m paraphrasing of course, but I think you get the message. If Assad in response to outside intervention uses biological or chemical weapons on Tel-Aviv and Israel retaliates against Damascus with a nuclear strike it would be the fulfillment of Isaiah 17. We have been on the knifes edge for months now and it looks like it’s likely to take place sooner rather than latter. I’m not saying it is “without question”, but without question it looks like it is. I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

  8. US get out from Midle East, you have nothing to do there, only France should send his "force de trappe", to Lebanon and Syria like did to the ex-colonies Zaire and Mali, or kill each other, but US "green go home","gringo".

  9. Shelley Squires says:

    Don't support the rebels;they are Muslim Brotherhood. Although Assad is wrong to use chemical weapons, it is not in Israel's or the USA's best interest to support the rebels. Syria will wind up like Egypt. When the Muslim Brotherhood gets in power, whatever little freedoms a country has are reduced even further. Stay out of Syria.
