Iraq War: Baghdad Patrol

The latest Gallup poll finds that 55% of Americans believe the War in Iraq is a mistake. From E&P:

More Americans than nearly ever before now say the war in Iraq is a “mistake” for the United States, according to a new Gallup poll. That figure now stands at 55%, up 4% point since late January. Only once before was the figure higher, at 59%, and that was during the period of overall pessimism right after Hurricane Katrina hit.

Gallup noted that it had asked this question about other wars involving the United States, “and only the Vietnam War engendered more public opposition than the current Iraq War.” The peak opposition to the Vietnam conflict was 61%. That figure for the generally unpopular Korean War was 51%.

    I believe the operative word is “liar”.

    A “mistake” is an “oops” thing, like, “Oops, I accidentally left the baby at the car wash!” Iraq was not an “oops”, but rather a preconceived, plotted series of actions against an unarmed nation. “Liberators” indeed!
