New public opnion poll shows Americans want out of Iraq. That will never happen. Babies born today will likely see military service in Iraq and Iran. Iran is the next country where America will establish a peace-loving Muslim democracy.|
The continuing instability in the Middle East only serves to deepen the American military commitment to the fight. High gasoline prices and raging Muslim anger combine to assure that Americans will never leave Iraq. The reason why so many want to quit the Iraq invasion is that it looks like the simplist and least bloody solution. There is no way out. Soon America will realize that, and then we can mobilize for full scale conquest of all the oil lands. We will have troops in Iraq, troops in Afghanistan, troops in Iran, troops in Kuwait, and troops throughout the Saudi Arabian penninsula. We will even have troops in oil-rich Russian Georgia and our ships will rule the Caspian Sea.
America, the glory of war awaits you!
Majority of Americans Believe Iraq Civil War is Likely
Washington Post-ABC News Poll Finds Sharp Decline in Optimism About Iraq War

An overwhelming majority of the public believe fighting between Sunni and Shiite Muslims in Iraq will lead to civil war and half say the U.S. should begin withdrawing its forces from that violence-torn country, according to the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll.
The survey found that 80 percent believed that recent sectarian violence made civil war in Iraq likely, and more than a third said such a conflict was "very likely" to occur. Expectations for an all-out sectarian war in Iraq extended beyond party lines. More than seven in 10 Republicans and eight in 10 Democrats and political independents believe civil war was likely.
In the face of the continuing violence, fully half--52 percent--of those surveyed said the United States should begin withdrawing forces. But only one in six favored immediate withdrawal of all troops from Iraq.
The new survey reflected a sharp decline in optimism sparked by the sectarian violence that flared in Iraq since the bombings of a revered Shiite mosque two weeks ago. Since then, deadly confrontations have occurred between Shiites and Sunni, who are a minority in Iraq but were favored under the regime of Saddam Hussein.
The poll found that 56 percent also say the United States is not making significant progress toward restoring civil order in Iraq while 43 percent believe that stability is being reestablished--a 17-point drop in optimism since December and the most pessimistic reading on this question since it was first asked in June, 2004.
And the country is split down the middle over whether the United States is moving ahead toward establishing a democratic government in that violence-torn country. Nearly half--49 percent--say the U.S. is making progress on the political front, down from 65 percent four months ago. And just as many--48 percent--say the U.S. and its allies are failing to make progress here, either.
Over the weekend, pressure mounted on Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jafari to give up his bid for a new term, a move that would add to the political turmoil currently engulfing the country.
A total of 1,000 randomly selected Americans were interviewed March 2 to 5 for this survey. Margin of sampling error for the overall results is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
More results from this Post-ABC News poll will be available at 5 p.m. at washingtonpost.com.
