Debra Saunders Of The San Francisco Chronicle - A Pro-War Type

Never let it be said that columnist Debra Saunders isn't gung ho for war becuase that would be a mistake as you would know if you read her latest writing about Iraq titled "Iraqis More Upbeat Than Californians".

"The Washington Post reported that the PIPA poll found that "71 percent of Iraqis questioned want the Iraqi government to ask foreign forces to depart within a year." Well, actually, make that two years. The PIPA poll found that 35 percent of Iraqis answered that they want their government to ask U.S.-led forces to withdraw within six months, 35 percent want their government to ask for a gradual withdrawal over two years and 29 percent want U.S. troops to be "reduced "as the security situation improves in Iraq." You could say that 64 percent of Iraqis want U.S.-led forces to stay for two years or more.

Other interesting tidbits from the PIPA poll: 64 percent of Iraqis think their country is headed in the right direction. Compare that to a recent poll that found that 44 percent of Californians say the state is headed in the right direction and 46 percent say it is headed in the wrong direction.

The PIPA poll asked, "Thinking about any hardships you might have suffered since the U.S.-Britain invasion, do you personally think ousting Saddam Hussein was worth it or not?" The answer for 77 percent: yes, it was worth it."

Debra sure is right about those interesting tidbits from the poll here are some she didn't mention.

"Asked whether “the US government plans to have permanent military bases in Iraq or to remove all its military forces once Iraq is stabilized,” 80% overall assume that the US plans to remain permanently"

"Naturally the question arises why it is that only 35% want US troops to withdraw within 6 months, but 47% approve of attacks on US-led forces."

But you have no need to fear, Debra has never wavered in her support for this war based on lies and she isn't about to stop now.

WMD...we never said this war was about WMD.
