Two-thirds feel Iraq/Afghan Wars Not Worth Fighting

Dr. Lawrence Wittner, Professor Emeritus of History at State University of New York (Albany) reports in the History News Network on a study conducted in May and June 2012 by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, "Foreign Policy In The New Millennium."

The survey in question was conducted by Gfk Custom Research on a sample of 1,877 adults, with a methodology for randomly selecting the participants.

Among the findings

70 percent opposed a strike against Iran with objective of destroying its nuclear program.

53 percent, however, believe the US should continue to maintain the dominant military.

Professor Wittner states that most Americans are much less eager to support foreign military bases and a bloated defense budget than our politicians are.

1. Tragically, about a decade too late.

But maybe things are changing. People are waking up, even in the great state of Misery . . .
