Forty-two percent (42%) of Americans say that if Israel launches an attack against Iran, the United States should help Israel. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 46% believe the United States should do nothing while just 1% believe the U.S. should help Iran.
I have a feeling, based on nothing more than my own silly notions, that the one-percent is made up of half ethnic Iranians and the other half are people that have actually read and understand our international obligations under the UN Charter to come to the aid of member nations who are victims of an otherwise unprovoked attacked by a rogue nation acting outside of the the rule of law.
I’m not saying what we should do, although even if we just stand by and watch Israel do everybody else’s dirty work when it comes to Iran’s nuclear aspirational goals, it’s certain that we could be counted on to veto any interference by the UN against our closest Middle Eastern ally.
However, it’s interesting that less than one percent of Americans even care what the UN obligates us to do.
