Student perceptions on America in the Middle East

Arbiter Graphic

Question: What is your perception of America’s involvement in what is going on in the Middle East?

Fawn Cooper, junior special education major

“I haven’t kept up on it lately; I don’t necessarily agree with what we are doing there but like I said I haven’t kept up on it so I don’t know what the current situation is over there.”

Keaton Beattie, sophomore liberal arts major

“I’m not really up-to-date on what’s going on in the Middle East so I think what we’re doing is good and that it’s nice we’re trying to help other people out and stuff, but I think there’s a limit to how much we should be involved in everything; I think it’s good what we’re doing.”

Tanner Cliff, freshman psychology major

“I’m not really too well-informed on it so I don’t really have a solid perception on it I think it’s not really necessary for us to be over there, but we’re over there.”

Thomas Wright, freshman business/marketing major

“I don’t actually think we should be over there; we should just pull everyone out and let them deal with what they need to do because they should be able to do it by themselves; we shouldn’t involve ourselves in everything everyone else is doing.”

Kim Gailey, freshman chemistry and English major

“I honestly think that we should lessen our involvement over there because we stick our nose in like everything and I just feel like we’ve been over there long enough and I feel like we should bring our troops home.”
