Only 9% of Americans Foresee Iraq Victory

Posted by mythoughtsandnews on December 18, 2006

– Few adults in the United States are confident in a positive resolution for the coalition effort, according to a poll by Ipsos-Public Affairs released by the Associated Press. 87 per cent of respondents expect some kind of compromise settlement, while only nine per cent foresee a clear-cut victory.

The coalition effort against Saddam Hussein’s regime was launched in March 2003. At least 2,937 American soldiers have died during the military operation, and more than 22,200 troops have been wounded in action.

In December 2005, Iraqi voters renewed their National Assembly. In May, Shiite United Iraqi Alliance member Nouri al-Maliki officially took over as prime minister.

On Dec. 6, the Iraq Study Group—a bipartisan panel of experts—presented its findings on how to deal with the situation in Iraq. The ten members called for a quicker process to train Iraqi forces, engaging with Iran and Syria in a dialogue aimed at stabilizing Iraq, and pulling back U.S. combat troops by early 2008. 60 per cent of respondents would favour withdrawing all troops in the middle of 2007, and 71 per cent prefer a full pull back in 2008.

On Dec. 13, U.S. president George W. Bush discussed the situation in Iraq, saying, “One thing people got to understand is we’ll be headed toward achieving our objectives. And I repeat, if we lose our nerve, if we’re not steadfast in our determination to help the Iraqi government succeed, we will be handing Iraq over to an enemy that would do us harm, the consequences of which—of leaving Iraq before the job is done, for example, would be grave for the American citizens.”

It does not matter what America thinks, because the president has not and will never listen to what Americans want. Bush only answers to the rich and powerful. Bush is way more deadlier than any terrorist.
