Americans Would Rather Get a Root Canal or a Colonoscopy than Launch War Against Syria

Americans Are Sick of War

We noted last month than Congress is less popular than North Korea, cockroaches, lice, root canals, colonoscopies, traffic jams, used car salesmen, Genghis Khan, Communism, BP during the Gulf oil spill, Nixon during Watergate or King George during the American Revolution.

The Washington Post notes today that a Syria intervention is less popular than Congress.  So that means that the American people would much rather get a root canal or a colonoscopy than bomb Syria.

Indeed, while John Kerry announced today that the Syrian government used chemical weapons, Reuters noted:

The polls suggest that so far, the growing crisis in Syria, and the emotionally wrenching pictures from an alleged chemical attack in a Damascus suburb this week, may actually be hardening many Americans’ resolve not to get involved in another conflict in the Middle East.

The bottom line is that Americans are sick of war.

    Americans are sick of war…but….too cowardly , or brainwashed, or lazy to do anything about stopping these war criminals . That makes American citizens equally guilty of the crimes of their government.

      There isn’t much Americans can do. Any revolution would be squashed immediately. We can only choose between 2 individuals (hardly a democracy) and even when we choose the supposed peace-loving hippy, he still turns out to be a war monger.

    Well duh. No brainer.Sign me up for the root canal and the colonoscopy and stop this BS excuse for war in Syria.

    What is more disgusting is our CIA started this crap and now the Syrian people for over a year have gone through this. No wonder the world hates America.

    And that is there plan. You destroy America by turning people against her. This is by design.

    “Someone told me that I should get a root canal from an endodontist because it takes less time and because they have great digital equipment that helps them see everything that’s going on with my tooth. I’d heard that Dr. Semashko was the best in the North Pittsburgh area, and I’m glad I saw him. I needed to have two root canals after trying to ignore pain for over a year. It was a very easy procedure.”
