Abstract
This survey concentrates on issues surrounding the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, and American political, economic, and military reactions to this invasion. Respondents were asked if they approved of the way Bush, King Hussein of Jordan, and Israel were handling the situation caused by Iraq's invasion of Kuwait, how important it was for Iraq to withdraw from Kuwait, if they approved of Bush's decision to send American military forces to Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf, if they thought Bush had been tough enough with Iraq, if the United States should strike first against Iraq, if the United States would have to get involved in a land war with Iraq, if they thought the economic boycott would make Iraq withdraw from Kuwait, and if they approved of putting some members of United States military reserves on active duty because of the situation. Other questions included who would win the war if the United States went to war with Iraq, if it would be a relatively short war, if the United States should consider using nuclear weapons, if the United States was heading for another Vietnam War, if the situation would lead to increased terrorism against American citizens, if those Americans not allowed to leave Iraq and Kuwait were hostages, and whether moral principle or economic consideration was behind United States actions. Background information on respondents includes political alignment, education, age, race, sex, and state/ region residence.Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR09464.v1
