Hernan Etchaleco: Argentineans do not want to go to war

Polls conducted all around the country show that around 60 percent of Argentineans are against any possible NATO military intervention in Afghanistan. This percentage rises almost up to 75 percent when asked if they would support any military co–operation of Argentinean forces with USA.

Specialists explain the reason for the results are the commotion that the two bomb attacks against Jewish targets during the last decade generated in the civil community. Some of the people interviewed link the attacks to the Israel Embassy in 1992 and a Jewish Mutual in 1995 to the military intervention of Argentina during the Gulf War.

The trial of the 1995 terrorist attack will resume today when prosecutors will finish reading the accusation against the 20 suspects in the case.
