Fox News poll: Bush's Iraq War Strategy Backed by 19% of Americans
http://www.angus-reid.com/polls/index.cfm/fuseaction/vi...

Adults in the United States are divided over the state of affairs in Iraq, according to a poll by Opinion Dynamics released by Fox News. 19 per cent of respondents support both the war and the current approach, while 33 per cent are in favour of the coalition effort, but want a different strategy in place.

Conversely, 20 per cent of respondents are opposed to the war but could change their minds if a new approach is developed, while 25 per cent reject the conflict regardless of the strategy.

The coalition effort against Saddam Husseins regime was launched in March 2003. At least 2,711 American soldiers have died during the military operation, and more than 20,400 troops have been wounded in action.

3. we are not divided/ the Majority rejects it and wants out
Edited on Sat Sep-30-06 05:03 PM by MissWaverly
81% of all Americans want out, how is that divided? Code Words: when the Media says divided
like it's a dirty word; it means we disagree with Chimp which nobody understands that it
is in the best interest of America to disagree with what is bad for America. Teddy Roosevelt
made this speech during World War I; so he was well aware that Woodrow Wilson was a War
President.

"The president is merely the most important among a large number of public servants, Roosevelt explained in 1918. "He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able and disinterested service to the nation as a whole.

"Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile.

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or anyone else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else."

T Roosevelt, 1918

4. the only strategy the necons have is to empty the treasury;
And they're doing it at a pace just short of 2 billion a week. The Dem's are accused of not having any strategy....just what can anyone do with this mess. The aftermath of this(mess) is a very scary proposition.
