No to Syria!

Post  fshnski on Mon Sep 09, 2013 10:33 am

Fully 60 percent of Americans asked about President Obama’s push for limited military action in Syria said no, that’s not a good idea, a CNN poll showed. In addition, Gallup confirmed that 51 percent of Americans are against the idea of strikes against Syria.

A new survey from CNN/ORC International of 1,022 adults finds that most — 6 in 10 — aren’t in favor of even the most limited of military missions in the war-torn nation.

Roughly 7 in 10, meanwhile, said air strikes in Syria wouldn’t bring about any favorable resolution at all for the United States — that America doesn’t have any national interest in Syria and military strikes wouldn’t fulfill any type of domestic goal, CNN reported.

Even if Congress does give the go-ahead to military strikes in Syria, 55 percent of Americans would still disapprove, the survey said. And if Congress doesn’t give approval, that percentage of dissenting Americans rises even further — to 71 percent, the poll found.

Still, the poll found 8 in 10 Americans do believe Syrian President Bashar Assad used chemical weapons against his own people. CNN reported.
The survey was conducted from Sept. 6 through 8, and has a margin of error of plus-minus 3 percent.

In a separate Gallup poll, Americans who oppose U.S. military action in Syria were mostly likely to say events in Syria were not America’s concern or that the nation does not to be involved in another war.

The figures released Monday show 24 percent of respondents who oppose a strike think events in Syria are “none of our business” and note that it’s another nation’s civil war.
