A note to President Barack Obama according to a recent Rasmussen poll, 57% of U.S. voters nationwide favor a military response to eliminate North Korea’s missile launching capability. What is needed when it comes to North Korea and Kim Jung Il is a little less talk and continued useless sanctions from the United Nations and a little more cruise missile diplomacy.
Fifty-seven percent (57%) of U.S. voters nationwide favor a military response to eliminate North Korea’s missile launching capability. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 15% of voters oppose a military response while 28% are not sure.
Support for a military response comes from 66% of Republicans, 52% of Democrats and 54% of those not affiliated with either major political party. There is no gender gap on the issue as a military response is favored by 57% of men and 57% of women.
Interestingly enough as pointed out by The Politico, American voters across lines of age, party and gender support a military approach to eliminate North Korea’s nuclear capabilities.
In other words, 57% actually care about US national security, 15% bow at the alter of the UN and enjoy singing kumbaya and 28% are just plain clueless. Sadly, the left and Obama think that more sanctions by the UN will make the difference. Exactly what part does the LEFT not understand in that North Korea could care less what the UN does. Barack, Kim Jung Il laughs at your words.
“This provocation underscores the need for action, not just this afternoon at the UN Security Council, but in our determination to prevent the spread of these weapons,” he said. “Rules must be binding, violations must be punished, words must mean something”.
Out of curiosity, where were these 57% during the Presidential Election in November 2008?
