Troops Are Ready To Come Home Wednesday, March 01, 2006

Hat tip to Lindsay new Zogby International/Le Moyne college poll of troops on the ground in Iraq said most troops believe they should be coming home within a year. The Financial Times ran the story:

Most American troops in Iraq believe the US should withdraw within the next year, according to the first poll of US military personnel there.

President George W. Bush, whose overall approval rating fell to a new low of 34 per cent this week, has repeatedly said the US would finish the mission in Iraq.

But a Zogby International/Le Moyne College poll found that only 23 per cent of US troops believed they should stay “as long as they are needed”.

Seventy-two per cent said the US should withdraw within 12 months, and 29 per cent said they should pull out immediately.

It doesn't look good for the home team when the players are ready to come off the field. It does go to show, after the Buckley comments as well that this war is over... Bush just can't figure it out. Did we mention this poll apparently had unofficial approval from commanders?
