A vast majority of respondents to The Evening Sun's phone survey support United Nations protection of the Kurdish refugees.
Of 291 callers, 216 (74 percent) said the U.N. should provide military protection for the Kurds, while 75 respondents disagreed. Even more (242, or 87 percent of 289 callers) supported military protection for a relief effort to aid the Kurds. A majority also supported creating a "buffer zone" in northern and southern Iraq for the Kurds: 198 (70 percent) of 282 callers agreed with the idea.
"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
