Freedom On The March?

It's nice to know that we're winning the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people, isn't it?
I mean, just look at these poll numbers, courtesy of skippy. From a poll of Iraqis by the British Ministry Of Defence:

• Forty-five per cent of Iraqis believe attacks against British and American troops are justified - rising to 65 per cent in the British-controlled Maysan province;

82 per cent are "strongly opposed" to the presence of coalition troops;

• less than one per cent of the population believes coalition forces are responsible for any improvement in security;

• 67 per cent of Iraqis feel less secure because of the occupation;

• 43 per cent of Iraqis believe conditions for peace and stability have worsened;

• 72 per cent do not have confidence in the multi-national forces.

Finally, I bring you this excellent SNL sketch, courtesy of Crooks And Liars.

Well, that's all I have time for today. Sorry about the patchy update schedule. Life has been a little crazy lately.

Thanks for taking the time to post the important stats.
