Americans in no hurry for Iraq war

Sunday 19 January 2003, 12:30PM

Most Americans want the United States to take more time seeking a peaceful
solution in Iraq rather than moving quickly into a military confrontation,
a new poll says.

By 60 per cent to 35 per cent, people in the Newsweek poll said they would
prefer that the Bush administration allow more time to find an alternative
to war.

Support for a military option would be strong, 81 per cent, if the United
States were to act with full allied support and the backing of the UN
Security Council. A majority would be opposed should this country act
without the support of the United Nations and had no more than one or two
allies.
