Americans: War on Terror Won’t be ‘Won’ in Next 10 Years
“The US is not the world’s policeman,” says Obama
September 11, 2013
Nearly all Americans, 94 percent, believe the war on terror has not been won, according to a new Associated Press poll.
Just 14 percent say it’s “likely” the war on terror will be won in the next 10 years.
At first, Obama sounded like he was on the right track while addressing the public Tuesday evening when he admitted the US is not the “world’s policeman” and it is beyond the US’s means to “right every wrong.”
But he contradicted himself when he said “…with modest effort and risk, we can stop children from being gassed to death and thereby make our own children safer over the long run, I believe we should act.”
