Despite Iran’s laughable claims (as a nation swimming in oil) to need nuclear capability to produce energy apparently isn’t washing with the American people.
Despite Iran’s claims that the nuclear facility is intended for energy production, 66% of voters in this country think the purpose of Iran’s nuclear program is to develop weapons. Just seven percent (7%) say its purpose is the development of energy. But a sizable number (27%) are not sure.
Even more interesting is the level of support for American involvement in a potential Israeli air strike:
Fifty-one percent (51%) of U.S. voters believe the United States should help Israel if it attacks Iran.
Israel is a good ally of the United States, and has endured considerable hardship on behalf of American priorities several times. We should actually be leading and carrying out an air strike (already should have) against these nuclear facilities, but if we are going to play the coward, the least we could do would be to help or stand behind Israel if they do it.
In a sad sort of way, there is one more interesting statistic from this survey: two percent (2%) of those surveyed believe the United States should help Iran.
It’s only 2%…but that’s 2% too many. Heaven help us for having people who are that morally bankrupt within our borders.
