A new survey has shown that most Americans would not support US-lead attack on Iran, even if the country “tested a nuclear bomb or attacked Israel.”
A quarter of respondents in 60 Minutes-Vanity Fair poll have said that “nothing” could make them “support a war with Iran.”
The phone survey of 906 randomly selected participants in September showed that 25% of respondent would consent to an attack “only if Iran attacks US soil” or “if Iran attacks the US fleet in the Persian Gulf”.
Around 24% of respondents said they would never support a war with Iran.
Only 11 percent of respondents said they would support war if Iran tested a nuclear bomb.
The US accuses Iran of following a military agenda under the guise of its civilian nuclear program, refusing to rule out military action on the country of more than 70 million people.
Tehran rejects the charges, arguing that as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, Iran has a right to the peaceful applications of nuclear technology.
