Polls Says 92 Percent Against Military Operations in Syria
A new poll from the Drudge Report indicates Americans are firmly against Obama's idea of striking Syria.
The new poll, which appeared on the Drudge Report early Tuesday morning, showed (as of 9:30 a.m. PST) 91.8 percent of respondents said no to the following statement:
"Give Obama authority to conduct military operations in Syria."
Respondents were asked to click the yes or no button. Some 414,000 plus people clicked no; the yes votes were just a whisker above 37,000.
Critics say, based upon previous military interventions that didn't turn out the way the U.S. wanted them to (Egypt), we should not be involving our forces. In addition, countries such as Iran have threatened retaliation against those who strike Syria. Russia has chimed in on the side of the Syrian president as well. Critics also say such a military operation would only further destabilize the entire Middle East. Some claim it would trigger a multi-nation conflict.
