Are Americans really this dumb?

It appears so:

A majority of Americans would support U.S. military action against Iran if there were evidence that Tehran is building nuclear weapons, even if such action led to higher gasoline prices, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Tuesday.

(snip)

Asked whether they would back U.S. military action if it led to higher gasoline prices, 53 percent of Americans said they would, while 42 percent said they would not.

So after two wars that cost the country trillions of dollars, killed and maimed thousands of Americans, and resulted in further curtailment of personal liberty in the US the majority or Americans would support a war with Iran. All I can say is that this is a perfect example of how addled the American people really are. A war with Iran would lead to oil prices of upwards of $200 a barrel, an economic depression of biblical proportions, and unforeseen implications as Iran unleashed all kinds of terrorist and unconventional warfare against the US and Americans around the world. Is this really what people want based on what might happen in the future if Iran gets nuclear weapons? Do people in this country have critical thinking skills? I wonder.

You know that the "dink factories" do not promote critical thinking skills. Yes, the majority of American'ts ARE that stupid. Just look at the ratings for "American Idol", "Survivor", etc. Listen to that garbage which is "popular music". Watch the pure crap coming out of Hollyweird that makes hundreds of millions. And look at the jackasses that are re-(s)elected for CONgress every time. How many terms did Teddy Kennedy "serve"? Pelosi, really?! Reid? Boehner the spineless? The guy who thought Guam would capsize??!!! And the ultimate in stupidity: Barak Hussein Obammy, the Kenyan Marxist in Chief. Yes, American'ts ARE that stupid.
