Even a majority of Democrats now support ground troops in Syria and Iraq to destroy the Islamic State. Only 30 percent of the country doesn’t support ground troops. The difference between the American people and our President is that we’re not Muslim supporters and we’re smart enough to see that the threat from Isil is only going to grow. We’re also tired of seeing Christians marched off to their death along with other minorities and anyone who doesn’t agree with the brutal animals that make up the Islamic State. They’re exterminating Christians and anything Christian from the land they occupy. Some of the destruction has been of priceless artifacts from the 9th century BC. The only thing these animals understand is overwhelming force, and the only way to stop them is to kill every last one of them. We can’t do that from the air and Obama knows it. He doesn’t care, because he wants it to be the next presidents problem. He doesn’t have the guts or the brains to wage a successful war, and he knows that too. So just like in Nazi Germany America will stand idly by while people die and Isil grows to a world wide force and hits us here at home. If only Bibi Netenyahu could be our president.
Support for using ground troops in the battle against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is on the rise, according to a new survey.
A Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday found that 62 percent of voters in the United States would support using combat troops in Iraq and Syria. Only 30 percent would oppose it, and overall support for deploying troops against ISIS was strong regardless of party, gender or age.
Seventy-three percent of Republicans surveyed would approve the use of ground troops, as would 53 percent of Democrats. The poll also found strong support for ground troops among Independents, with 60 percent saying they would back their deployment in the fight against ISIS.
The Quinnipiac poll shows a significant uptick in support for a combat mission. In late February, a Pew poll found that 47 percent would back boots on the ground. A separate CNN/ORC poll from the same month also concluded 47 percent supported the same outcome.
The poll’s findings come as Congress debates whether to authorize a request President Obama made on Feb. 11 for war powers against ISIS. His proposed authorization for use of military force (AUMF) would prohibit the use of “enduring offensive ground combat operations,” language aimed at soothing Democratic fears about a prolonged war in the Middle East.
