The people know best

It looks like the American people are appeasing terrorists:

With Congress preparing for renewed debate over President Bush’s Iraq war policies, a majority of Americans now support setting a deadline for withdrawing U.S. forces from the war-torn nation and also support putting new conditions on the military that could limit the number of personnel available for duty there, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News Poll.

Opposition to Bush’s plan to send an additional 21,500 troops to Iraq remained strong, with two in three Americans registering their disapproval – 56 percent said they strongly object. The House recently passed a nonbinding resolution opposing the new deployments, but Republicans have successfully blocked consideration of such a measure in the Senate.… 

Of course, the handful of politicians and pundits who still support the war (including Australia’s delusional Prime Minister) can only speak in meaningless rhetoric and sound-bites. The war is lost, children.

For at least one Iraqi blogger, the Bush administration’s support for the corrupt Iraqi leadership is unforgivable.
