Noting polling showing that nearly six in 10 Americans believe the Afghan war is no longer worth fighting, Clark Stooksbury asks:
So, Americans, will you remember this the next time it seems like such a good idea to go into war and perhaps be a bit more skeptical? Oh, who am I kidding?
Yeah you right. The new CBS/NYT poll finds a majority of Americans (51 percent) support taking military action against Iran to prevent it from developing a nuclear weapon. Only 36 percent oppose. The rest don’t know. (See the poll result in this PDF, on page 22). When asked what the US should do if Israel attacks Iran, 47 percent said support Israel, 42 percent said “stay out of it.”
