BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- More than half of Iraqis in a survey done primarily in March and early April said their nation will be better off in five years because of the U.S.-led invasion, but 55 percent said they had an unfavorable opinion of the United States
Fifty-five percent had an unfavorable opinion of the United States, and 56 percent had an unfavorable view of Britain.
Fifty percent of the respondents said the United States is not serious about establishing democracy in Iraq, 54 percent said the United States is not serious about improving the Iraqi economy and 57 percent said the United States won't let Iraq determine its political future.
Please read the whole thing. From what I can tell though, the majority of the Iraqis surveyed don't have much of a clue. Look, I don't think that the Iraqis are in much of a position to know what they think at this point in the process. Putting any faith in polls of the Iraqi people is a bit of a fool's game. When you look at the numbers in this particular poll, the Iraqis are all over the map and as such, the results are pretty much meaningless. Were you to have done a similar poll in Germany in 1946, you probably would have gotten similar results. Change on this large a scale comes slowly, particularly when forces from within and from without are trying to forestall it.
