they want us out!

a stunning military poll conducted by the british ministry of defense shows that 82% of iraqis are "strongly opposed" to the occupation, 45% support attacks against occupation forces, and "fewer than one per cent think allied military involvement is helping to improve security in their country." as the sunday telegraph reports, 67% feel less secure because of the occupation.

the release of this poll was almost completely ignored by the us media, although blogs raw story and left i on the news covered it. meanwhile news outlets will continue to defend themselves against charges that they never report the "good news" from iraq.
