More Americans Oppose RatheThan Favor U.S. Military Strikes Against Syria”
Just 33% Believe Airstrikes Are LikelyTo Be Effective In Discouraging The UseOf Chemical Weapons
September 3rd, 2013 CNN Two new national polls indicate the same thing: More Americans oppose rather thanfavor U.S. military strikes against Syria.According to an ABC News/Washington Post survey released Tuesday, 36% of thepublic supports launching missile strikes against the forces of Syrian President Bashar
 
al-Assad if the U.S. has determined that Damascus has used chemical weapons againstits own citizens, with nearly six in ten opposing such a move. The poll indicates that support rises ten points, to 46%, and opposition drops eightpoints, to 51% if allies such as Great Britain and France participated in missile attacksagainst Syria.As lawmakers mull whether to support a strike against Syria, it’s clear the dividing line is“hawk vs. dove” rather than Democrat vs. Republican.
The ABC News/Washington Post poll indicates no partisan divide, with 54% of Democrats and 55% of Republicans opposed to unilateral U.S. strikes.But that number rises to 66% among independents.
A Pew Research Center poll, which was conducted Thursday through Sunday, alsoindicates little support for any military strike, with 29% in favor of such a move, 48%opposed and nearly one in four unsure.“Three-quarters believe that U.S. airstrikes in Syria are likely to create a backlashagainst the United States and its allies in the region and 61% think it would be likely tolead to a long-term U.S. military commitment there,” says a release by Pew Research.
Meanwhile, just 33% believe airstrikes are likely to be effective in discouragingthe use of chemical weapons.”Just 32% of those questioned in the Pew poll say that the president has clearlyexplained why the U.S. should launch strikes against Damascus, with nearly half saying Obama hasn’t been clear enough and one in five unsure.
 The Pew Research Center poll was conducted August 29-September 1, with 1,000adults nationwide questioned by telephone. The survey’s overall sampling error is plusor minus 3.7 percentage points. The ABC News/Washington Post poll was conducted August 28-September 1, with1,012 adults nationwide questioned by telephone. The survey’s overall sampling error isplus or minus 3.5 percentage points

The tyrant Assad has been using poison gas against Syrian revolutionariesrepeatedly since Spring. The Obama regime knew it; reports were carriedextensively around the world.When the last use killed too many to ignore, Obama was trapped in acontradiction flowing from his “red linebullshit.
 
Either execute a pointless military response calculated not to do serious harm tothe Assad regime, or fail to act and see the Imperial presidency lose even morecredibility. Lose lose.The proposed military response has nothing to do with helping the Syrianrevolutionary movement, or saving Syrian civilians’ lives, or bringing down theloathsome Syrian regime.On the contrary, the Obama regime wants to maintain the crony-capitalist Assadgovernment firmly in place, without Assad if possible, but with him if necessary.This has been repeatedly made clear. [See quotes that follow.]Reality is that a U.S. government attack, however limited and useless in changingmilitary reality inside Syria, will help Assad to gather support at home and abroadas he portrays himself as defending Syria from the Empire, and also gives himfresh ammunition to use slandering the Syrian revolutionaries who fight hispoison-gassing dictatorship as nothing but traitors serving U.S. interests.The proposed military attack on Syria is the weak fumbling of a dying Empire.The U.S. Imperial government has no interest beyond projecting economic andpolitical power, however stupidly the Empire does so in reality.Some outside Syria who see that will act as dishonorable cheerleaders for themass murderer Assad and the Russian Imperial government that stands behindhim.More will see that the Assad regime is one of the most corrupt, murderous,reactionary collections of blood soaked tyrants on the face of the earth, and rejectthe disgusting apologists for that regime.Increasing forces are organizing honorably and implacably to oppose an Obamaregime military strike on Syria, and, at the same time, wholeheartedly supportingthe Syrian revolution.It is possible to walk and chew gum and the same time.It is encouraging that millions worldwide have come out against an Imperial attackon Syria, including a significant number of people in the USA.In coming days, it’s the special responsibility of those of us in the USA tomaximize resistance to the proposed attack on Syria and defeat Obama’s effortsto strengthen the Empire at the cost of more dead Syrians.
