Word on the Street: Endless War

It has been 13 years since 9/11, and America’s wars show no signs of ending.  The country is now at war, either openly or covertly, in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Yemen and who knows where else.  President Obama recently made it clear that there is no place in the world that the US will not intervene to achieve its objectives.

We wanted to find out what public opinion is towards this state of perpetual warfare.  Do citizens support this, or do they want it to end?  Is this now the new “normal?”  To find out, we did some spontaneous, random interviews at the University of North Carolina campus in Greensboro NC.  As we expected, many of the college students were informed and adamant in their responses.  There was a range of opinions, not always in agreement.  Do they have it right?  What do you think?
