Reason-Rupe Poll: Three-Quarters Believe Strikes on Syria Are 'Unwise'

At least without the support of United Nations and allies


In 2002 then-State Senator Barack Obama proclaimed he wasn't against all wars, just "dumb" and "rash" ones.

Nearly three-quarters of Americans, 74 percent, say it is "unwise" to launch unilateral military action against Syria, the latest Reason-Rupe poll finds.

Just 17 percent of Americans say US strikes on Syria without the support of the United Nations and Great Britain would be wise.
