As the devastating civil war in Syria drags on into its fourth year, U.S. voters remain just as reluctant about American involvement.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 18% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the United States should do more to bring about a change in the government in Syria. Forty-seven percent (47%) do not think the United States should do more. One-out-of-three voters (35%) are undecided.
And well they should be reluctant, given the horrific mess George W. Bush managed to make of Iran and Afghanistan. Thousands of Americans dead, Islamic terrorism at least as powerful and dangerous as ever, and now spreading rapidly, and our own people still subject to rectal probes when they try to travel, while the state spies on every aspect of their lives in order to “protect them from terrorism.”
I said at the time that one of the worst outcomes of the Bush administration would be that he would poison the well for any US military action abroad, no matter what the reason. Including any military efforts to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons.
