    It’s not a case of déjà vu.

    The American public again appears supportive of starting a war in the Middle East, with two polls indicating a near-majority would support a military attack on Iran to prevent the country from developing nuclear weapons.

    In a Rasmussen poll released Monday, 48 percent of respondents said they would want the United States to assist Israel if it choses to unilaterally attack Iran.

    A poll conducted by The Hill found that 49 percent believe the U.S. should be willing to use military force to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. Only 31 percent disagreed.

    The findings come in the midst of the Republican presidential race. Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum have indicated a willingness to attack Iran, whereas Ron Paul has vehemently opposed a hypothetical attack and expressed concern about “war propaganda,” comparing the situation to the lead-up to the Iraq war.

    Iran has a population of approximately 75 million people — more than twice the population of Iraq — and is about four times larger in area.

    Now ask them if we can raise all the income tax brackets 10% to pay for it and then see how much support there is.

    Or if they are willing to send their children off to join the armed forces in order to fight the war.

    The Global Elite and Military Industrial Complex always find the money for more War.
