Corte Madera Chronicles

A group blog; a place to share photos, thoughts, stupid shit we find on the internet, whatever. Hopefully we'll get at least one post per day from someone, and not so many posts that it's too overwhelming. Have fun!

reality check

According to a recent poll, 48% of Americans favor military action against Iran if Iran doesn't halt its nuclear program (against 40% opposed). According to THE SAME FUCKING POLL, only 12% of Americans think that military action would succeed in stopping Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

Am I reading this correctly? 36% of Americans -- a hundred million people -- favor using military action even though they themselves believe it wouldn't do any good?

Ahh. Americans. Gotta love 'em.

Polls are way too dependant on how the question is written and the order questions are given in.

Iran would kick our ass btw. It would be WAY worse than Vietnam or Iraq. Unless we decided to Nuke 'em before they can finish their own. But we would have to nuke military targets, not cities like we did to Japan, and the Iranians would keep fighting.

God people are stupid. I wonder if any of the fuckers who said they would support military action realize that Iran is only this gung-ho for getting nukes because we have 200,000 troops sitting next door...
