Another War?—Pass me the sixpack
Of necessity, one’s visceral reactions to violent events become tempered through repetition. Dead bodies and burned out buildings do, over time, lose their shock value. And so the prospect of yet another military invasion—this time of Syria—might be met with a tepid response from a public accustomed to over a decade of war.
In a recent Sputnik interview, Paul Craig Roberts declared that “I don’t think the world will stand for another illegal US invasion so for the US to send another army into Syria would be another illegal invasion and I don’t think that it will likely happen.”
However, Roberts’ perceptions are not supported by a recent CNN survey, which found that a majority of the Americans polled stated that they would now support an invasion of Syria.
