Determined to finish the job in Iraq.

Here’s a good won. This will make you laugh. The BBC has reported on a secret poll conducted in August on behalf of the British Defense Ministry. After all the melarky we’ve been treated to about Operation Iraqi Freedom --

  • 45% of Iraqis believe attacks against US and UK troops are justified
  • 82% of Iraqis are "strongly opposed" to the presence of coalition troops
  • Less than 1% of the Iraqi population believes coalition troops are responsible for any improvement in the country
  • 67% of Iraqis feel less secure because of the occupation
  • 43% of Iraqis believe conditions for peace and stability have worsened
  • 72% do not have confidence in the multi-national forces.

Thankfully, we are still as determined as we ever were to finish the job.

VOICE: You'll have to jog my memory: what exactly was the job in the first place?
