17. Here's a good example of that
In the World Public Opinion Poll of January 06, 59% of the Iraqi respondents, given the choice between having Iraqi security forces ready to take over in 6 months, versus "Will still need the help of military forces from other countries", 59% chose the latter. That sounds on the surface that they might want us to stay for quite a while, right?

But in the very same poll, 47% said that they "support the attacks on US led forces". That is damn good evidence that many of the 59% who said that they will still need help in 6 months were not talking about US led forces. In fact, given the results of the rest of the poll questions, it is highly doubtful that more than a very small minority of that 59% were talking about US led forces.
