American forces Want Go Home

Is Mr Bush listening? His boys in Iraq are screaming: Get Us Out of Here!

A new Zogby poll shows 72 percent of U.S. forces fighting the war think the U.S. should get out within the next year. And 29 percent say the pullout should happen immediately.

Other interesting results of Zogby poll:

While the administration keeps going on about "foreign fighters" being the problem in Iraq, only 26% of the troops questioned thought eliminating foreign fighters would weaken the insurgency.

The strongest opposition to "staying the course" in Iraq came from reserve and National Guard troops, but even among active-duty Marines, the most gung-ho of troops in Iraq, 58% favored a pull-out within a year. Nearly half of reserve and guard troops favored an immediate pull-out.

While the president talks about starting to reduce the number of US troops in Iraq, currently at a peak of 136,000 (a political imperative with congressional elections coming up this November), a majority of troops in the country say it would take a doubling of troops and a stepped up bombing campaign to control the Iraqi insurgency.

A clear majority of the troops oppose torture and aggressive interrogation techniques and four out of five polled oppose the use of such banned weapons as napalm and phosphorus bombs, such as US forces employed in the assault on Fallujah in November 2004.

And how educated are brave soldiers ?
85 percent of troops in Iraq still think they're fighting "to retaliate for Saddam's role in the 9-11 attacks." And to prevent Saddam from allowing Iraq to become a safe haven for the al-Qaida terrorist network.
Yes, we know. Saddam was brother of Osama and they destroyed WTC with thousends tons of WMD hidden in truck labs. And it's all about war on terror.
