Unless Iran attacks US soil, then the US woulden't be able to get involved even if the goverment wanted to. The debt is a big issue for the election, and the public are already tired of the endless wars against the Middle East. If Obama tried to interject, we would have another Vietnam War. The public would defy it to no end.
I disagree with this. The American people are largely apathetic to this kind of stuff. Plus, if Americans were REALLY
tired of the wars, it would be Ron Paul vs Barack Obama in this election, and not Obama versus his white, Mormon clone, and Paul would be winning in a landslide.
The vast majority of American people won't wake up until it's too late. They get their news from stations like MSNBC, Fox, and CNN, and all three are pounding the war drums and making the American people think an attack from Iran is imminent. Most of them work 9-5 jobs and don't have time to do their own research, so they rely on the mainstream media to give them the news. The government preys on the ignorance of the public.
Plus, even if the American people were opposed to it, do you really think the government cares about the will of the people?
