There Was 500 Percent More Support for the Iraq War than a Syrian War

Americans Aren’t Buying It

Everyone knows that the Iraq war was a mistake.

Before the Iraq war started,  60% of the American public backed the war. Even if the U.N. Security Council had rejected a resolution paving the way for military action, 54% of Americans would have favored a U.S. invasion.

Why?

Because the U.S. falsely claimed that Saddam Hussein was connected with 9/11.

In contrast, only 9% of the American public supports the Syria war.  That is less than one-sixth of the support for the Iraq war … even assuming rejection of the Iraq war by the U.N. Security Council.

Indeed, Americans would rather have a root canal or a colonoscopy than bomb Syria.

    Are you a conservative, a libertarian, a Christian or a gun owner? Are you opposed to abortion, globalism, Communism, illegal immigration, the United Nations or the New World Order? Do you believe in conspiracy theories, do you believe that we are living in the “end times” or do
    you ever visit alternative news websites (such as this one)?

    If you answered yes to any of those questions, you are a “potential terrorist” according to official U.S. government documents and your gonna be going down Syria Way. American’s have been airily sprayed with chemical poisons in chemtrails (weapons) for years. Difference is….. Syrian WMD works instantly, whereas Americas WMD is a more of a slow death allowing big pharma to clean up by cleaning you up like vultures…. http://www.activistpost.com/2013/08/72-types-of-americans-that-are.html

    “500% less”
    Is this the New New Math ?
    100% less would be Zero. That’s as low as it can go.
    There can be 1/5th the support, but NOT 500% less.

    In other news, any time you see any media say that something is “800 percent more”, you can be 99% certain that they mean “700% more OR 800% as much”.
