Americans, Britons, French, Turks Oppose War Against Syria
A new Pew poll shows that 70% of Americans oppose arming the Syrian “rebels”. As the Washington Post notes:
Opposition in the Pew poll is actually higher than ever before in the two-year-old civil war. And that’s even as much of the poll was conducted after the White House announced Thursday that the Syrian government had crossed the “red line” and used chemical weapons.
But while the red line was significant to the White House, it doesn’t seem to have altered the perceptions of the American people.
(In fact, the weight of evidence shows that it was likely the rebels – not the Syrian government – which used chemical weapons. See this, this, this and this.)
