Majority back use of force in Iran

A Washington Post-ABC News Poll says something to both our friends and enemies: Despite the anti-war elites’ propaganda in the US (never mind the Europeans), Americans retain their common sense and their character is, once again, revealed. The WaPo reports: "By 56 percent to 38 percent, the public endorsed the use of the military to block Iran from developing nuclear arms." While I do not argue in favor of going into Iran, this poll is another very good indication of the clear thinking of American citizens, post 9/11. There should be no immediate concern about squishiness, quagmires, and so on. The people seem to have a very clear understanding that there is serious mischief abroad, and we may, from time to time, have to act in ways that matter. Let me paraphrase Hamlet: Though we are not splenative and rash, yet we have in us something dangerous. And it is good that this is known.
