I am sure we can "improve" a lot of other lives too. Please, send your children and your dollars to NationBuilding.com.

To find out whether this is incidental to the invasion or not, you have to ask the Iraqis whether the invasion was worthwhile.

nah, thats getting carried away.  I think it would be better if we just asked whether they would prefer to be tortured by saddam, or killed by a group of angry shia/sunnis.

let them choose!

The blog links to a London Times article which did the survey, which is trustworthy. In fact, I saw a similar survey done a year or two ago.

HOWEVER, this bit:

"However, the civilians on the ground who are suffering more than anyone else believe that the war is win-able. They want us to keep on going."

Is utterly and completely wrong. Several polls have stated unequivocally that the Iraqis do NOT want the troops to remain.

There's no need. I did all of the intellectual heavy lifting for you.

Just accept: war bad; war wrong; invasion wrong; Bush bad; liberals good and there's no need to think for yourself or form independent opinions ;)

Thank god. I thought I'd have to think by myself. Can you do my homework too? I'm kind of lazy, and Oprah will be on tv in 5 minutes.

No. I find it more amusing to see you fail.

There are surveys and surveys. This one seems fairly pessimistic:
