I have faith in the ability of America to accomplish great deeds. Guess which poll I believe?
Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) at a December 7th news conference.
"Eighty percent of the people, according to a British poll reported by the Washington Times, says we want the United States out; 77 percent of the people in Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Egypt say there's a better chance of democracy if the United States is not there because we're considered occupiers; 45 percent of the people in Iraq think that it's justified to kill Americans."
But then there is this from an ABC News poll:
Most Iraqis want U.S. forces to stay until security is better. 52 percent of Iraqis want the U.S. troops to stay. That includes 31 percent who say stay until security is restored, 15 percent who say until Iraqi security forces can operate on their own and 5 percent who say stay even longer. 59 percent of those living in Shiite areas say the United States was right to invade their country and topple Saddam. 64 percent say democracy will be the right government for Iraq in five years' time.Thanks to the Washington Post and the New York Post.
