An Attack On Syria Would Be the Most Unpopular War Ever
Three times more Americans supported US involvement in Vietnam at war’s lowest ebb

Support for an attack on Syria amongst Americans is more than three times lower than support for US involvement in Vietnam at the very lowest ebb of the war, illustrating how universally unpopular such a move would be despite the media claiming Obama would “lose credibility” if he does not launch a military assault.
Chickenhawk politicians and the corporate press have repeatedly floated the talking point that Obama must follow through on his “red line” threat in order to save face and rescue credibility. Credibility with whom? Certainly not the American people – only 9 per cent of which support intervention in Syria according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.
If Obama got the United States embroiled in a conflict with Syria, it would be the least popular war in the history of the country.
