Readers against war with Iran, poll finds
By a 2-to-1 margin in an online poll, Daily readers opposed war with Iran.
“Should the United States go to war with Iran?” the poll asked. Of 186 readers responding, 120 (64.5 percent) said no and 66 said yes.
The unscientific poll lasted two days at www.decaturdaily.com, ending Friday. People could vote from anywhere.
In an e-mail, Clint Thompson of Trinity mentioned President Bush’s belief that Iran is supplying some of the weapons that are killing U.S. service members in Iraq.
“Almost as many U.S. military personnel have been killed by gunshot wounds from the Russian made AK-47 as from IEDs (improvised explosive devices) allegedly manufactured in Iran,” Thompson wrote. “Following Bush’s logic, if that is possible, should the United States go to war with Russia? I have not heard anyone in the Bush administration advocate doing so.”
