Well, so much for that statistic
As Jack Murtha is fond of saying, over 80% of Iraqis want us out. But... alas, the facts. According to a recent (and very comprehensive) poll of Iraq:
Q33 - How long do you think U.S. and other Coalition Forces should remain in Iraq?
Count % They should leave now 435 25.5 They should remain until security is restored 527 30.9 They should remain until the Iraqi government elected in December is in place 331 19.4 They should remain until the Iraqi security forces can operate independently 266 15.6 They should remain longer but leave eventually 55 3.2 They should never leave 23 1.3 Difficult to say 70 4.1 Total 1707 100.0
Three quarters of Iraqis don't want us to leave immediately... rather the opposite of what Murtha said. Almost half of Iraqis want us to stay in place until the security situation is resolved. Don't worry, Iraqis. We will.
Hit the road, Jack. And don't you come back no more no more no more no more.
