Americans widely oppose Syria strike despite drumbeat in Washington

04.09.2013 14:24

While Congress considers United States President Barack Obama’s request to use military force against the regime of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad, fewer than four-in-ten Americans say they are in favor of launching a strike.

We have not proven that we understand anything about the middle east, so why should we get involved in something we know nothing about? We should promote UN action and support a coalition operation but to act unilaterally could be a huge mistake.

A program on radio KPFA on 9/6/13 said that some calls from some Congressional Districts constiuents are running as much as 1000 to 1 AGAINST attacking Syria. One poll put support for attacking Syria at only 9%. They cited a study that showed a direct correlation between the politiicans stand and the amount of money they have recieved from war interests. Add that to AIPAC $ and the Arab oil-e-gharchs $ and you get the picture.
I did a lot of protests against the War on Iraq but the sentiment against this war seems to be 100% AGAINST with many young people and many veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan in evidence.

Obama, Kerry &Co. are embarrassing most of the Americans, the hypocrisy of the US Adim has become overwhelming.
As I see it, for the first time in modern history, a Russian ( yes, Russian) president is acclaimed and praised by Americans more than the US president himself!!
Yet another primacy for Mr. Obama.

The chemical lie is nothing more than a smoke screen for the real agenda - to disrupt/control the Syrian gas pipeline. The 99% needs to understand the motivations of our globalists in power and reject EVERYTHING they desire. Demo or Repub - not matter - protest globalists and their hateful agenda!

Obomber needs to be taken somewhere quiet and shot twice in the head alongside Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolofowitz, Kissenger, Rice and all the other agents of the Zionist bankers. Then send their next of kin the bill for the bullets. Then hang the Rothschilds, Rockerfellers and the Koch Bros. Then leave their corpses to rot in a field of dung.


  


Ve ry well put!

The average American wants nothing to do with the war in Syria. Adding munitions to the conflict only creates the potential for increased ill-feelings toward the USA by both sides. Either the United States does not act with enough force or too little. Since this is a no win situation the USA should refrain from involvement.

Who do you support? The government that uses gas on its people or the terrorist groups affiliated with the rebels?

I Speaking to a soldier at restaurant today & he says the consensus among his comrades was opposition to the war. I know it is illegal to say publicly, tired of hiding my opinion.. must overthrow & dismantle this corrupted government. The countless families that have suffered around the world, that have suffered because of the barbaric actions of this nation is immense. We must free ourselves from this terrible & antiquated way of thinking. Life is too beautiful & we have not the right to rob anyone from it.

  


Ex cellently put across! so true best comment.

for the last 6 months, we have seen the Syrian conflict in mainstream media almost every day. the PTB in Washington, and whoever is pulling their strings, have been prepping for this for a long time. I have not talked to one person who wants this war - republican or democrat. where is the presidential approval poll ? i haven't seen one in a while.

 

Adam Stone 05.09.2013 15:13

"The latest Post-ABC poll revealed that 42 percent of Democrats oppose a strike, as do 43 percent of Republicans. Opposition among parties clocks in at 54 percent and 55 percent, respectively."
This is a little confusing, I believe the first sentence is supposed to read:
"42 percent of Democrats SUPPORT a strike, as do 43 percent of Republicans"

Actually there polls are way wrong about 90% of Americans oppose the war the ration of people who oppose after phone calls to leaders yesterday was 499 to 1 tell RT to check their facts a little better.

  



Blaine you are right, but it is very difficult for RT, as they need to rather err on the side of caution. But the World has eyes to see... also, your alternative media serves to open global eyes. Ordinary Americans are loved & respected all over the World, we're just supporting your case here against MB Obombo, which is: Americans say: NO TO WAR IN SYRIA!!!

USA is still fighting Soviets

  


Yes! The US sure as h*ll is going to have a rude awakening! Russia is the New Leader of the world! Not as a warmongering superpower, but as a sensitive, cultured & diplomatic Peacemaker par excellence. Their politicians are true statesmen who put the brash-trash, the common money grabbing, greedy & corrupt zionistic West & its Allies to utter shame! Your time is now People of America! Save the US from the evil on Capitol Hill! They're stealing her away from you & are abusing your great generosity & trust. Stand up NOW!! Rally!
