I'm starting to think that most Americans are idiots. Most of them think that Iraq is headed toward civil war, yet most also give Bush high marks on national security.

I'm starting to think that most Americans are idiots. Americans were overwhelmingly in support of this war about two years ago. They still give Bush high marks on national security. Yet most now think that Iraq is headed toward civil war. This guy was reelected only about a year ago, for Chrissake!

Omar States; "I'm starting to think that most Americans are idiots."

Poor thought process on your part.

"Americans were overwhelmingly in support of this war about two years ago."

That is because the President of the United States is a great leader and because the opposition party showed nothing but hate.

"They still give Bush high marks on national security."

That is because the US has not been attacked and that they are killing our enemy at a time and place of our choosing.

"Yet most now think that Iraq is headed toward civil war."

You can lead a horse to water, but...

"This guy was reelected only about a year ago, for Chrissake!"

Better than putting two more Johns in the White House, who needs that Sh_t.

This poll of a civil war in Iraq has been shaped by the liberal press/media, it's another way to spell chaos in Iraq and further damage any good that is being accomplished in Iraq. It's all part of a strategic game plan by the Democrats to attack the Republican Party, with full support of the media they can constantly lay in front of the American people 24/7 number of casualties, insurgents (killers, terrorists) entering Iraq, suicide bombers, molding and shaping public opinion, we have had no further terror attacks, we have a great economy, growing jobs, great rise in home ownership, all time low in unemployment, but folks things are so terrible......

A strategic plan by the Democrats? Lets see what other magical powers I have. George Will criticized Iraq war this week. William Buckley, Pat Buchanan and Andrew Sullivan have been criticizing it for a while. The blame the media argument is a sign that there is no argument left. I saw a Joe Scarborough segment last week and he was very critical of Bush. Alot of people are jumping ship, thats all.

A lot has changed in the past year and a half. Cheney saying "we are seeing the last throes of the insurgency"is no longer credible. Alot of the reasons we went to war have been found false. WMDs links to September11 etc.

No, you're hyping it up, there's no jumping ship, first of all what ship is sinking? America? Give me a break, other than folks who hate him and whom disagree with us fighting terrorists in other countries what's the big problem?

No not America, but our objective in Iraq, The people I listed above are all Republicans, hardly part of the hate Bush crowd. Trying to link our invasion of Iraq with fighting terrorists is an argument that is falling apart.

They only thing that has kept Shia and Sunni apart this long had been a despotic leader of a secular Baathist political party Named Saddam.

These folks have blood fueds that are generations lang and they don't forget them. The same thing would happen in Syria if Assad were toppled.

Oh and one more thing there is a good segment of Americans who couldn't even find Iraq on a map let alone have any real grasp of how close they are to a civil war.

Good point! But when I was in the minority for opposing the war, I was constantly reminded by people "how out of step I was with the rest of the country". Where were you then?? LOL
