Pew Poll On War With Iran

Majorities in many Western and some Muslim countries are willing to consider military action against Iran to prevent the Islamic Republic from obtaining nuclear weapons, a poll conducted by Pew Research Center in 22 countries has revealed.

Americans are among the most supportive of a military option to deal with Iran with 66 per cent of those who oppose a nuclear-armed Iran saying they would consider the use of force. Nigerians are the most supportive, with 71 percent in favor of military action.

Among Europeans, the views are more mixed. In France, 59 percent said they would consider the use of military force, but a sizeable minority of 41percent rejected this option.

Support for the military option is softer in Germany (51pc), Spain (50pc) and Britain (48pc). Russians were divided on the use of force, with 32pc in each camp.

In the Muslim world, there is support for military action in Egypt (55pc), Jordan (53pc) and Lebanon (44pc). In Turkey, 37 percent said avoiding a military conflict should be the priority while 29 percent would consider the use of military force.

The poll surveyed 24,000 people in 22 countries between April 7 and May 8.

US PR and the MSM have done a fine job in demonizing the Islamic Republic of Iran. It is a genuine credit to the deterrent capability of Iran's armed forces that it has not been attacked, even under the spectrum of Bush/Cheney belligerency.

We have done an even better job at demonizing ourselves than the entire world combined. You seem to have forgotten the "election" last year, the rapes, murders, and crackdown, and the gradual shift of Iran from an Islamic Republic to a Fascist junta-run state.

Not only is propaganda,furthermore,americans now want to talk for muslim world.

They put int heir mouth fake propaganda against Iran.

Iranian nuclear weapons are not a treat for regional coutnries,all countries know it.

The debate of iranian nuclear weapons is stupid.Regional coutnries are more worried about siraeli nuclear weapons than Iran.

This is the reality.

This survey is managed,and donñt represent the feeling of the world.

I'm sorry to tell you that Nader Uskowi's blog is completely out of touch with reality.
I think, he is simply publishing what he believes Washington/the US government would like to read.
If you want to know what's really going on in Iran, you shouldn't rely on such a sycophant and bootlicker blog.

the Israelis and US are sending 12 ships plus aircraftcarriers to disrupt Iranian shipping and provocing a war (have salready passed the Suez canal)

Be aware Iran and should you decide to shoot, then shoot to kill.. because they Israel and USA are shooting to kill you to divert attention from Gaza and Afghanistan.

By all respect for all Iranians across the world, but please stop the panic.

Every one can attack Iran, but they all have to realize that a destiny like Iraq awaits them.

Somehow attacking Iran is like challenging Gods favorite country, God does not like it and hunts "karma" after the aggressors.
