Here are some recent polls on what Americans think about military intervention in Syria. Not only does Americas allies not want military
intervention, but the vast majority of Americans don't want it either. So when the press says that Obama is going this solo .. they aren't kidding.
It's just him and Valerie Jarrett and John McCain ... and a handful of other weenies who want to kick off World War III in Syria ...
August 25th Reuters Poll
Americans strongly oppose U.S. intervention in Syria's civil war and believe Washington should stay out of the conflict even if reports that
Syria's government used deadly chemicals to attack civilians are confirmed, a Reuters/Ipsos poll says.
60% of Americans think America should not act in Syria.
9% of Americans think Obama should act in Syria.
(the other 31% must be undecided )
25% of Americans support intervention if Assad uses chemical weapons on civilians.
46% would still oppose it.
What Americans Think about Military Intervention in Syria
Keeping in mind that polls can be skewed to look however the pollsters want ... this latest poll was taken by the Obama-shill machine NBC. The
results are interesting. Although I would have thought the number of people disagreeing with Obama on this would have been higher. (I suspect some
padding of the numbers by NBC ... making the edges less sharp against their guy ... )
