51% of Post-9/11 Veterans say Military Force creates hatred that leads to more Terrorism

In a new poll conducted by the Pew Research Center, about half of all veterans interviewed say that relying on military force in the Middle East leads to more terrorism. More than 80 percent said they are opposed to a draft.

Among post 9/11 veterans, less than half say the war in Iraq was worth the sacrifice: “Veterans are more supportive than the general public of U.S. military efforts in Afghanistan and Iraq. Even so, they are ambivalent. Just half of all post-9/11 veterans say that, given the costs and benefits to the U.S., the war in Afghanistan has been worth fighting. A smaller share (44%) says the war in Iraq has been worth it. Only one-third (34%) say both wars have been worth fighting, and a nearly identical share (33%) say neither has been worth the costs.”
