Do They Want To Kill Us?

Late this afternoon, I was cleaning out my bookmarks at work (everyone does that, right?), and I had a few links saved that I had meant to post up here. Then, you know, work got in the way, as it's wont to do. This is an important one, though, so I'm posting about it now.

When the recent wave of attacks started, I heard certain inflammatory remarks by certain people on the left and in the press. They stated that this just may the leading edge of a popular uprising by the People against the Occupiers. The Bush Administration reassured the American people that no, this isn't a broad-based uprising, but just a small group of dead-enders, composed of radical Shiites, foreign fighters from neighboring countries, and Baathists. Then this poll came out, showing that the administration knows what they're talking about. It's a quick read, so click through it. The most amazing part of it shows that even a majority of the Sunni -- who had the most to lose with Saddam being gone -- say that the violent attacks on coalition troops are wrong. Only one in ten of the Shiites support the attacks. 1 in 10. Let that sink in, and remember it the next time you hear people say we're not wanted by a majority of the Iraqi people.
