Welcome to FR.
This is getting confusing.
Please stick to important studies, such as red wine and coffee are good for us this week.
Overall 94 percent have an unfavorable view of al Qaeda, with 82 percent expressing a very unfavorable view. Of all organizations and individuals assessed in this poll, it received the most negative ratings. The Shias and Kurds show similarly intense levels of opposition, with 95 percent and 93 percent respectively saying they have very unfavorable views. The Sunnis are also quite negative, but with less intensity. Seventy-seven percent express an unfavorable view, but only 38 percent are very unfavorable. Twenty-three percent express a favorable view (5% very).
Views of Osama bin Laden are only slightly less negative. Overall 93 percent have an unfavorable view, with 77 percent very unfavorable. Very unfavorable views are expressed by 87 percent of Kurds and 94 percent of Shias. Here again, the Sunnis are negative, but less unequivocally71 percent have an unfavorable view (23% very), and 29 percent a favorable view (3% very).
Actually, I do believe this. I also believe that the Iraqis would be absolutely ruthless in putting down opposition. Of course, that's assuming that they could hold the country together for longer than a week.
Someimes they poll 400 Kurds at random, sometimes they poll 400 members of Sadr's Mahdi Army at random, sometimes they check the graffiti in Fallujah and Ramadi.
Sniff ralphy's other posts. Kinda marginal.
Looks like Saddam's defense team was in the pool as well.
80% of all insurgents polled agree.
Washington Post...= A Lie.
These Lying scumbags are seditious traitors right in our Midst.
Every Single Democrat = Leftist RatBag.
I think they're the one's tallying the results. :)
How long has ralphy77 been posting on Free republic?
So, 75% favor some kind of pullout and 65% of those favor an immediate pullout.
.65 x .75 = .4875.
Less than half favor an immediate pullout.
Ralphy got burned. The little pr*ck said in post #1 "don't believe this poll". Then he freepmails me to ask me why I don't believe our own State Dept. Ha!
