Lets also remember that Americans are not generally the most educated or aware when it comes to what is happening outside of their borders.
I can guarantee that 90% of those polled probably wouldn't be able to point to Gaza on a map without labels.
CNN might as well be asking a toddler for an opinion on the Fiscal Cliff for all the sense they'll get.
You know there is reality to a fair number of Americans being out of the loop, realistically I don't think it's so much "stupidity" in a raw form
as we work a lot, I put in 15 hr days most days, I personally MAKE the time to study because it's fun to me i'm a big nerd but yeah a lot of America
are doers more than thinkers on topics that don't concern them in daily life so I have never liked the stupid American label in that regard the same
guy who doesn't know or care where Gaza is can often rebuild an engine blindfolded while working the BBQ for 17 people and have the steaks turn out
perfect so "stupid" in these regards is subjective to be fair I think Americans mainly don't give a damn is far more appropriate in all reality
Does this situation concern us?
Israel cld be a serious threat if we turn on them but any action of that nature comes at the hands of "Govurmint" and well mainly we don't like the
"Govurmint" and none of the "werkin man" sect likes "towel heads" why "because they don't like beer and wimen" that's why
seriously... jokes aside...
Only our Government has made this our concern in all reality we have no reason to be involved there would be zero concern to a typical American if not
for us sticking our noses where collectively they don't belong in the first place so why "know" much about it?
The typical redneck has it right sometimes the stupid are wise...
"it ain't none of our business"
Any cop will tell you getting involved in a domestic violence dispute is dangerous as all hell... and that's what this is, it's that crappy house on
the corner where someone is going to get killed one day and everyone knows it and nothing can be done to stop it until it's over.
To place Knowledge of this dispute as important would in essence be the same as going to that house on the corner and trying to debate rationally who
screwed the others best friend first and why they are both on crack... someone is going to die there isn't anything more you need to know.
