U.S. Troops: Pull Out of Iraq
Posted on Feb 28, 2006
FT.com (Financial Times): Most American troops in Iraq believe that the US should withdraw within the next year, according to the first poll of US military personnel in Iraq.
President George W. Bush, whose overall approval rating fell to a new low of 34 per cent this week, has repeatedly said the US would finish the mission in Iraq. But a Zogby International/Le Moyne College poll found that only 23 per cent of US troops believed that they should stay “as long as they are needed”.
Truthdig wonders: Does this mean that Bush is unpatriotic because he’s not “supporting the troops”?
