Amazingly, Americans Don't Want Another War

According to The New York Times, a survey reveals that Americans are reluctant in backing up a war strike against Syria.

Mr. Obama's task was further complicated on Monday by a Russian proposal that President Bashar al-Assad of Syria give up his chemical weapons -- a plan that muddies the president's case for military action.

The poll underscores a steady shift in public opinion about the proper American role in the world, as fatigue from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has made people less open to intervening in the world?s trouble spots and more preoccupied with economic travails at home.

In the Syrian crisis, 6 in 10 Americans oppose airstrikes, according to the poll, with similar majorities saying they fear military action could enmesh the United States in another long engagement in the Middle East and would increase the terrorist threat to Americans.
