Nearly three out of four Americans oppose the United States sending combat troops to Iraq to fight the al-Qaida-inspired insurgency, a new poll commissioned by a liberal group finds.
According to results of the automated survey released Tuesday by Public Policy Polling, 74 percent of American voters oppose sending U.S. troops in response to the crisis in Iraq, while just 16 percent support such a move.
On Saturday, the day after President Obama addressed the nation on the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) made a statement. As per his usual self, McCain made sure to undermine the President regarding his foreign policy strategy. At the same time, he pushed for the US to commit to sending troops into Ukraine and confronting Russia directly.
