Research by Charli Carpenter Shows Americans Would Oppose War Crimes in a War with Iran

Three years ago, when tensions were high with Iran, political scientists from Dartmouth and Stanford released a study claiming that Americans would have little respect for the norm of civilian immunity in a war with Iran. New research by Charli Carpenter, Professor of Political Science at UMass Amherst  and Alexander Montgomery, Associate Professor of Political Science at Reed College, shows this finding was highly misleading with over 80% of Americans saying civilians should never be the object of attack in war.
