Iraqis Reject U.S. Puppet

Newsweek is reporting that a recent Iraqi public opinion poll indicates that only 23% of Iraqis support new Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi; 61% of Iraqis oppose Allawi.

The poll also indicates 55% of Iraqis would would feel "more safe" if coalition forces left Iraq immediately. As recently as January only 28% of Iraqis felt that way. The poll also indicates rising support for Al-Sadr, declining support for the CPA and plummeting confidence in the coalition forces.

Most depressingly, a majority of Iraqis believe that the actions of the Abu Ghraib MPs are representative of all Americans.

There is no good news for the U.S. in the poll whatsoever. The Iraqi people want us out now, and the longer we stay the more support radicals like Al-Sadr are gaining.
