Poll: 85% of Americans against Iran war

submit to reddit

Less than a week after the publication of an IAEA report on Tehran’s nuclear program, a poll has found that 85 percent of Americans are against military confrontation with Iran.

The poll, conducted by the CBS Broadcasting Inc., also found that more than half of the respondents saw diplomacy as the only means to alleviate Western concerns over Tehran’s nuclear program.

In its latest report, published on November 8, the International Atomic Energy Agency accused Iran of conducting activities related to developing nuclear weapons before 2003, adding that these activities “may still be ongoing.”

Iran, however, rejected the report as “unbalanced, unprofessional and prepared with political motivation and under political pressure mostly by the United States.”

Washington and Tel Aviv have repeatedly threatened Tehran with the “option” of a military strike, based on claims that Iran’s nuclear program may include a covert military aspect, an allegation that Tehran has categorically refuted.

Iran, however, insists that as a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the IAEA it has the right to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes such as electricity generation and medical research.

In addition, the IAEA has conducted numerous inspections of Iran’s nuclear facilities but has never found any evidence indicating that Tehran’s civilian nuclear program has been diverted towards military objectives.

Iranian officials have promised a crushing response to any military strike against the country, warning that any such measure could result in a war that would spread beyond the Middle East.

    Your poll is flawed… I’d believe that well over 60% of Americans know that Iran needs to be dealt with soon and would support Israel and the U.S. in taking out Iran’s nuclear ambitions. How about before CHRISTmas? Let the Europeans deal with the riots and civil unrest brought about by thewir new Islamic occupiers. We don’t want them here.

    85% not wanting military conflict is a start, now if all of that 85% would just understand that sanctions inevitably lead to war. We have no business telling another country what they can and can’t do.

    US should leave Iran alone. I find it utterly disgusting that any person would condone military action

    What the Zionist regime is doing is only spreading the HATRED towards Jewish people in general.
    So here is my question:
    How long will it take before the Jews will be mandated to start wearing the yellow star?
    We all know what happened after that.
