    Anything can be made attractive to anyone. Any population can be made to believe that any act is beneficial. One person can argue that the "global war on terror benefited Israel but not America. Another can argue it benefited America but not Israel. Another can argue it benefited only Saudi Arabia and China. It is important that people look to older and wiser people when they are deciding whether to support something like an attack on Iran. A suggestion would be to do the above poll with the results separated by demographics. For example x% of 70+ year olds have this opinion. x% of 10 year olds have that opinion. x% of landowners have this opinion. x% of college professors have that opinion. Netanyahu and Barak are certainly nice gentlemen but their judgment should not carry more weight with the public than a 70 or 80 year old who has no political and financial stake in certain actions.
