This country is so freaking hardcore. I wonder how the DUmmies are reacting to this news?

57% Americans support military action in Iran
By Greg Miller, Times Staff Writer
Published: January 27 2006 15:22 | Last updated: January 27 2006 15:22

Los Angeles TimesWASHINGTON — Despite persistent disillusionment with the war in Iraq, a majority of Americans supports taking military action against Iran if that country continues to produce material that can be used to develop nuclear weapons, a Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll has found.

The poll, conducted Sunday through Wednesday, found that 57% of Americans favor military intervention if Iran’s Islamic government pursues a program that could enable it to build nuclear arms.

Support for military action against Tehran has increased over the last year, the poll found, even though public sentiment is running against the war in neighboring Iraq: 53% said they believe the situation there was not worth going to war.

The poll results suggest that the difficulties the United States has encountered in Iraq have not turned the public against the possibility of military actions elsewhere in the Middle East.Bush ratings sink in latest poll

Support for a potential military confrontation with Iran was strongest among Republican respondents, among whom 76% endorsed the idea. But even among Democrats, who overwhelmingly oppose the war in Iraq, 49% supported such action.

In follow-up interviews, some respondents said they believed Iran posed a more serious threat than Saddam Hussein’s Iraq did.

“I really don’t think Saddam had anything to do with terrorism, but Iran, I believe, does,” said Edward Wtulich, of Goshen, N.Y. He was among the 1,555 adults who participated in this week’s survey, which has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. “Iran has been a problem, I think, for years,” Wtulich said, “and we’ve known about it.”

Wtulich, a registered Democrat and retired manager for the New York City Housing Authority, said he supported taking a hard line with Iran despite the strain of the Iraq war on the U.S. military.

“It makes me scared,” he said, “but we may not have a choice.”

Experts said the public’s views on Iran appeared to have hardened in part because of the more aggressive anti-Western posture of Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Elected last year, he has riled the international community with remarks denying the Holocaust and with declarations that Iran will defy European and U.S. pressure and continue to pursue efforts to enrich uranium.

His comments have fostered an impression of him as “very reckless, a real rogue, as opposed to simply a populist,” said political science professor John Mueller of Ohio State University, who is an authority on wartime public opinion.

Mueller said that Americans’ rising support for confronting Iran was “impressive,” especially considering their misgivings about the war in Iraq, and that their support suggested “concerns about the new president.” But he added that poll respondents are often more inclined to voice support for military intervention when the question is framed broadly and the potential for casualties is unclear.

“You always get higher support for things like ‘military action,’ because that could just mean bombing, as opposed to sending troops or going to war,” Mueller said.

Poll respondents expressed a strong preference for the United States working with allies to fight international law violations or global aggression.

Iran has insisted its nuclear program is solely for energy production. But the United States and other Western governments suspect Iran’s program is aimed at developing weapons.

European nations that have negotiated with Iran over its program want the matter referred to the United Nations Security Council. Iran has indicated it might be open to a compromise in which Russia would provide enriched uranium to Iran, for use exclusively in energy reactors.

The American public’s position on Iran appears to have hardened over the last year, a period marked by an increasing international focus on Iran’s nuclear program. When a similar question was asked in a Times poll last January, 50% favored military action against Iran.

Regarding Iraq, the latest poll shows that although most Americans remain disenchanted with the war, opinions have stabilized, at least for now. The percentage saying they believe the situation in Iraq was not worth going to war over dipped slightly, to 53%, compared with 56% in a survey a year earlier.

When asked who was winning the war in Iraq, 33% said the United States, 7% said the insurgents, and 55% said neither side was winning.

Americans remain divided over how long U.S. forces should stay in Iraq: 40% believe the United States should remain in Iraq for “as long as it takes,” 36% want U.S. troops withdrawn within a year, and 14% support immediate withdrawal.

Respondents were also divided, largely along party lines, over whether the Iraq war is really part of Washington’s war on terrorism; 51% say it is, 46% say it is not. President Bush has repeatedly cast Iraq as the central front in the war on terrorism. But many of his administration’s prewar claims about Iraq’s ties to Al Qaeda have turned out to have been overstated or based on unreliable intelligence sources.

The poll also found that 32% of Americans believed that terrorism around the world had increased because of the Iraq situation, 17% believed it had decreased, and 47% believed the problem was about the same.

57% may support it now... but then after G.I.'s start getting killed on the streets of Tenran 97% would be screaming bloody murder. Personally, I think we should take off and let Jews handle the middle east, it's the only way to be sure. I'm fucking tired of deployments, training, more deployments, inspections, deployments.......... And I'm in the Guard. I can't imagine how those poor fuckers in Active Duty Army feel.

Well, I wouldn't be surprised that American attitudes change this quickly--military action or not, it's still not THEIR ass on the line.

We have a class of soldiers in this country, and people are content to let it stay that way. I'm not saying the military is not a great opportunity, but how many Yale or Harvard kids are signing up?

And as mentioned, we're only hardcore until the photos of burning humvees are splashed on the screen. Then it's "oh noes!1!!!" again.

Not needed.

Simply present Japan, South Korea, Saudis, Germany, et al, with BILLS so they pull the economic weight of our protection of them. If they can;t stand to get their hands dirty, fine, but I'd rather be the world's mercenaries than the free police.

With the $$$, raise pay etc, which eliminates the need for a draft.

Look, I'm not saying I like it either, but you've got to admit it's easy for people to say "yeah, let's do something" until they come to the realization that "oh. all I had to do was answer the poll but now these guys have got to go over there and fight. woe is me, I feel bad, bring them back!"

another word NUKES makes the invasion unncessary. however...

you start tossing nukes at countries that border and/or are close to china/russia things will get interesting...

what is iran.. 3 times people, 4 times the size of iraq.
..has yet ot attack another country (unlike iraq which lead to un resolutions and the 1st gulf war with a legitmate excuse to finish in the second).
..may like what osama did to the twin towers but had nothing to do with it and probably hated the taliban as much as we did

face it.. NUKEs or DRAFT aint gonna happen. unless iran nukes israel. which would cause a massive retailiation we wouldn't even be involved in.

best thing by far our leaders could do is get off their butts and do something to make us strategically and economically independent of middle beastern oil..

oh.. i cant believe 57% of us citizens are in favor of invading iran.. give me a break...

eta to add.. i wish nothing but havoc and sadness to this goat an camel fuking nation... but at this point i aint in favor of spending my tax dollars on a war to free the camels and goats...

If 57 % of the people are in favor of invading Iran it just proves the theory that 57% of quoted facts are bullshit 100% of the time. What is a fact is OPEC knows they have us by the balls bcause we are addicted to their oil. Would GM and Ford be losing billions and laying off workers if the majority of their cars all got 40 mpg. No...they introduce the "smaller" Hummer. The best way to hurt opec and the middle east is to get free of oil dependency. If we had invested 80 billion in hybrid fueled cars instead of invading/rebuilding Iraq we'd be well on our way right now. Why do we have to rebuild Iraq you might ask. Simply...we blew that fucker up real good thats why!!

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying,
'Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?'
And I said, 'Here I am Lord, here I am! Send me.'

The above is exactly how I feel. If you're worried about who will fight, get off your ass and prepare to contribute, otherwise, you're just blowing hot air.

So what about the fact that it appears that just as many (including myself) suspected, Iraq's WMD's were moved into Syria?




Because we are a nation of f****ts and pussies!



America is no longer the strong nation that it used to be!

The people of today cannot compare to the greatest generation and come close to their sacrifices!

We wouldn't be able to handle it!




A war with Iran wouldn't be something that the American people can become disconnected and ignore (As with the case in Iraq) and we would be FULLY commited.


I need to write a rant on this topic...





I hope this post is PC enough for the site staff...

Let me know and I will edit.



Dude, you really need to stop listening to the MSM and pick up a damn book. You'll be shocked at what you'll find out.



I'd be very surprised if I even heard the first line paraphrased by the MSM...


You need to get out and see some of today's youth...

A majority of young people can hardly spell "Military" let alone contemplate serving in one...

WHO THE HELL IS GOING TO FIGHT THESE WARS?!?




It's not very promising...

ETA:

I read plenty of books...

Thanks for asking...



Aren't you getting close to military age?

No...they introduce the "smaller" Hummer. The best way to hurt opec and the middle east is to get free of oil dependency. If we had invested 80 billion in hybrid fueled cars instead of invading/rebuilding Iraq we'd be well on our way right now. Why do we have to rebuild Iraq you might ask. Simply...we blew that fucker up real good thats why!!



Gee, your boy Bill had 8 years and he never initiated such programs.
