Over the last four months, the Brian Lehrer Show has been asking our guests and you, our listeners, to tell us whether you think war is inevitable. Hundreds of you responded. Thanks! Below are some examples of the responses we got. To read ALL of the responses we got, go here.
And by the way, about 60% of people who responded think war is inevitable while about 40% think it's not. We're still accepting responses, so tell us whether you think war is inevitable. Survey here. And be sure to tune in on June 13th for the final End of War show live from the Greene Space.
