Iraqis Want America Out

PIPA has released a new poll of Iraqi attitudes toward the U.S. occupation.

There’s no doubt about what they want: they want us to leave.

  • 74% of Shiites want us to leave within a year or less
  • 91% of Sunnis want us to leave within a year or less.
  • 78% of all Iraqis believe U.S. forces are provoking more violence than we’re preventing, and 53% believe that day-to-day security would improve if we left.
  • 61% actually support attacks on U.S. forces
  • And none of this is because of successful al-Qaeda propaganda: 94% of Iraqis continue to disapprove of al-Qaeda.

Summary report here.

So why are we in Iraq?
