Poll: Iraqis Support Attacking Occupation Troops
Sunday October 23rd 2005, 10:02 am
In Britain, it takes a Ministry of Defense poll to figure out the obvious: the average Iraqi hates the British, hates the occupation, and “up to 65 per cent of Iraqi citizens support attacks” against British and American troops. “The nationwide survey also suggests that the coalition has lost the battle to win the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people, which Tony Blair and George W Bush believed was fundamental to creating a safe and secure country,” reports the Sunday Telegraph.
Of course, Tony and George really don’t give a damn about the “hearts and minds” of the Iraqi people—if they did, Iraq wouldn’t be a violence-wracked garbage pit where “huge numbers of people [are] lacking adequate access to basic services and resources such as clean water, food, health care, electricity, jobs and sanitation,” according to the New Standard, a situation characterized as “building a new and better Iraq” by General Sir Mike Jackson, the Chief of the General Staff of the British Army.
