Why our gov supports the next Vietnam?

Our gov and media outlets appear to have convinced the majority of Americans that the Ukraine war should continue until Russia agrees to unconditional surrender and leaves the country. This is the same bullcrap that our leaders peddled in Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan etc.


Do most Americans realize that Putin will never release the Donbas areas he now controls and that the Ukraine military is finished? Of course not. The US spent two decades in Afghanistan trying to defeat the Taliban. Guess who won that conflict? Putin has won this one (it's over).


The only folks in the US who have anything to gain from prolonging this conflict are military contractors. Approx 20% of our current federal budget goes to defense. I'm sure these dudes have no influence on members of congress.


Is Support for Ukraine Waning?

Rasmussen Polling

Wednesday, March 22, 2023


More than a year after Russia invaded Ukraine, half of U.S. voters think the war has harmed America’s national security and many want to see a negotiated peace.


The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. voters believe the Russian invasion of Ukraine has made America's national security situation worse – up from 42% last September.


Just 14% now say the Russian invasion has made U.S. national security better, and 28% think it has not made much difference. (To see survey question wording, click here.)


Forty-five percent (45%) of voters believe it would be better for American interests if Ukraine keeps fighting until the Russian invasion is completely defeated, while 41% think it would be better if Ukraine negotiates for peace with Russia. Another 14% are not sure. Last July, 63% said Ukraine should keep fighting until Russia completely ends its invasion.


More Democrats (52%) than Republicans (40%) or voters not affiliated with either major party (42%) now believe American interests would be best served if Ukraine keeps fighting until Russia is defeated. Forty-eight percent (48%) of Republicans, 38% of Democrats and 37% of unaffiliated voters think a negotiated peace would be better for U.S. interests.


The survey of 972 U.S. Likely Voters was conducted on March 14-16, 2023 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.


Forty-two percent (42%) of Likely Voters now rate Biden as doing a good or excellent job in handling national security issues – up from 38% last September – while 44% give Biden a poor rating on national security.


While 72% of Democrats give Biden a good or excellent rating on national security, only 17% of Republicans and 33% of unaffiliated voters share that view. Seventy-one percent (71%) of Republicans rate Biden poor on national security, as do 17% of Democrats and 47% of unaffiliated voters.


Sixty-five percent (65%) of Republicans, 36% of Democrats and 51% of unaffiliated voters believe the Russian invasion of Ukraine has made America's national security situation worse. Twenty-six percent (26%) of Democrats think the Russian invasion has made U.S. national security better, but just eight percent (8%) of Republicans and unaffiliated voters agree. Thirty-one percent (31%) of Democrats, 22% of Republicans and 32% of unaffiliated voters say Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has not made much difference in America’s national security.


More men (50%) than women voters (40%) believe it would be better for American interests if Ukraine keeps fighting until the Russian invasion is completely defeated.


Whites (47%) are more likely than black voters (35%) or other minorities (41%) to give Biden a poor rating on national security. Black voters are less likely to believe it would be better for American security if Ukraine negotiates for peace with Russia.


Voters under 40 are less likely than their elders to think Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has made America's national security situation worse. Voters 65 and older are most likely to rate Biden as doing a poor job in handling national security issues.


College-educated voters are more likely to think it would be better for American interests if Ukraine keeps fighting until the Russian invasion is completely defeated, compared to those who did not attend college.


Breaking down the electorate by income categories, 66% of those earning more than $200,000 a year rate Biden as doing a good or excellent job of handling national security, compared to less than 40% of those with annual incomes below $100,000. Voters with incomes over $100,000 are more likely to believe it would be better for U.S. interests if Ukraine keeps fighting until Russia is defeated.


Biden’s strongest supporters are most likely to view complete victory for Ukraine as better for U.S. interests. Among voters who Strongly Approve of Biden’s job performance as president, 72% believe it would be better for American interests if Ukraine keeps fighting until the Russian invasion is completely defeated. By contrast, among voters who Strongly Disapprove of Biden’s performance, just 28% see a complete Ukrainian victory as better for U.S. interests, while 56% favor a negotiated peace with Russia.


Nearly two-thirds of voters think the 2024 election will probably pit President Biden in another contest against former President Donald Trump.


Former President Trump remains more popular among Republican voters than GOP congressional leaders, and a majority of all voters think Trump’s 2020 campaign was sabotaged by D.C. politicians.
