New poll: Americans support use of force against Iran
Most Americans would support the United States taking military action to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
President Bush last week said the rest of the world should join the United States in declaring that it "will not tolerate" nuclear weapons in Iran -- a vow that most Americans appear willing to back with force. By 56 percent to 38 percent, the public endorsed the use of the military to block Iran from developing nuclear arms.
The national survey of 1,024 randomly selected adults conducted June 18-22 found that support for a military action in Iran came despite rising concern about the growing number of casualties among U.S. military personnel in Iraq. About half said the current level of U.S. dead and wounded is "acceptable" -- down from two-thirds in early April. (Albawaba.com)
