About six in 10 Iraqis say they approve of attacks on U.S.-led forces, and slightly more than that want their government to ask U.S. troops to leave within a year, a poll finds.

The Iraqis also have negative views of Osama bin Laden, according to the early September poll of 1,150.

The poll, done for University of Maryland’s Program on International Policy Attitudes, found:

Almost four in five Iraqis say the U.S. military force in Iraq provokes more violence than it prevents.

Answen this questionm

How mahy nations had actually welcome invading forces to their homelands throughtout the history of mankind?

It’s downright outrageous and outright ignorant to say iraqis would welcome GIs with sweets and flowers.

History also says that not only invaded nations resisted invading forces, they also recipricated in kind when they were in power.

Of course most Iraqis back attacks on U.S. troops. Same as a hundred and some years ago when Sitting Bull and his warriors took on the army of the U.S.A. Every Native-American had to have been cheering when Custer took his big fall.
Goes to show for the umpty-umpth time that there’s nothing so precious as freedom and independence.
