From Rasmussen Poll

Just 11% of U.S. voters think America should apologize to Iran for “crimes” against the Islamic country – one of the prerequisites demanded by the Iranian president before he will agree to meet with President Barack Obama.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 73% oppose such an apology.

Obama in an interview last week with al-Arabiya, a 24-hour Arabic language satellite network, offered to end nearly 30 years of bad relations with Iran if the Middle Eastern nation is ready to “unclench its fist.” Ahmadinejad responded by demanding an apology for U.S. “crimes” against Iran and calling for major changes in U.S. policies toward his country.

Shortly after Obama’s election, most Americans said they expect terrorists or Iran to provide his first international test in office.

Fifty-two percent (52%) of voters view Iran as an enemy of the United States, while just four percent (4%) say it is an ally. Thirty-nine percent (39%) view it as somewhere in between the two, and six percent (6%) are not sure. These numbers have changed little since last September.

    Although the U.S acts despicably to most Nations on Earth, such as Iran and Cuba; Iran can hardly complain, they’re not saints themselves. Of course America should apologise. It’s international politics. It’s how it goes.

    52% of Americans view Iran as an enemy. It would appear that Bush’s policy has penetrated the intelligent minds of a over half the population. Sad times.
