<a href="http://www.csmonitor.com/2002/1106/p01s01-ussc.html">Surveys are finding</a> that young people are the age group most in favor of going to war with Iraq, with older generations being less supportive of military action. While this may seem far removed from the peace movement of the 60's, surprisingly Gallup polls taken the late 60's and early 70's reflect similar findings - despite all the flower children. Americans aged 18 to 29 back US military action by a 3-to-1 margin (69 percent to 23 percent). In contrast, support falls to 51 percent among those aged 65 or older, 31 percent of whom oppose a war against Iraq, according to three surveys by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press. Additonally, the young are far less likely than their elders to feel that the U.S. would suffer significant casualties in the event of a war with Iraq. So why is this? Does it come down to a question of bravery or foolhardiness by the kids? Is it fear or wisdom on the part of the seniors? GA seems to house people from a broad cross-section of age groups. I'd like to hear your opinions on this, particularly in relation to your age. Did you have a different opinion earlier in your life?
