Commentary and analysis on markets, personal finance, and wealth building from a contrarian perspective. "I believe in the discipline of mastering the best that other people have ever figured out. I don’t believe in just sitting there and trying to dream it up all yourself. Nobody’s that smart."

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.
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.
