Latest data suggests the world is against military intervention in Iran

February 8, 2012 § 4 Comments

The latest poll figures suggest that American citizens are more likely to seek military intervention in Iran, despite being less likely to believe Iran is enriching uranium for nuclear weapons.

  • Double the number of Americans (44%) than Britons (23%) would bomb Iran
  • High percentages of Americans (64%), Britons (70%), Germans (74%) and Danes (76%) believe that Iran is probably enriching uranium to make nuclear weapons

People across the world are very sceptical about direct military intervention in the form of a ground invasion. Whilst the most promising option, in the public’s opinion, is the strategic bombing of nuclear weapons installations.

This is unsurprising given the war fatigue that has built up in America over the last decade. However, the fatigue appears to be stronger still in Europe. Whilst 22% of Americans support a ground invasion, only 12% of British people do, and in Germany only 18% people do.
