This statistic shows British public opinion by age on September 24 to 25, 2014, on whether the United Kingdom and the United States should send troops back into Iraq in order to combat the threat from Islamic State/ISIS. With the exception of those aged 25 to 39, more than half of participants of all ages disapproved of Western troops back in Iraq. Of the former category, 45 percent disapproved, which was higher than both the figure for approval and those who were unsure.
