Is it fair to say that most Americans want a war with Iran?

Seems like vast majority of Americans support either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney for president, both of whom are foreign policy neoconservatives who will probably attack Iran in the future.

Are the American people sad that the Afghan occupation is winding down, and want another war - this time, with Iran?

Is THAT what is going on?

I just wonder how the US federal government will pay for an Iran war. The debt is at $16 trillion and rising... where is the cash to invade and occupy Iran going to come from?

    No the difference being Obama wants to avoid war, and he'll stretch out the current conflict as long as possible to delay any decision, whereas Romney will just jump in without Congressional approval.

    The American population is a majority of morons that just follow whatever the president/ puppet says without a second thought. They don't want a war because their "loved ones" might be hurt, but they just want the "bad guys" to all die. If that means a war, then they have no problem and more will join the armed forces. But the decision to go to war isn't up to the president, it's the higher ups that make that call along with every other choice America has made for a long time. And as for the money, it's a made up concept so they can print as much money as they want. And the debt is a lot higher than $16 trillion...

    No, and nobody I know wants this.

    But, a proxy war where we sell arms to other countries may help our economy and get engineers back to work. We got things like digital cameras, microwave ovens, the internet, gps, etc. from military research.

    Most Americans want Iran to conform to our demands without war.

    No....It IS fair to say that Iran wants war with America though.....I do not want the most terrorist nation on the Earth to have a nuclear weapon.....We could get the cash for it by demanding drug testing before food stamps are given out.....Why is it fair to test those of us who work for a living but not to test those who don't.
