Survey in Iraq shows tons of optimism.
Here is Tim Blair’s rundown.
So I read Tim first and saw this sentance:
Also interesting: asked to nominate a priority for the new government, only 10% (of 1700 respondents) mentioned removing coalition forces.
Then I read the BBC and saw this right at the top of the article:
Their priority for the coming year would be the restoration of security and the withdrawal of foreign troops.
Deeper into the article came:
When asked to choose a priority for the new government due to be formed after this week’s parliamentary elections, 57% wanted to focus on restoring public security.
Removing US-led forces from Iraq came second with 10%, while rebuilding the country’s infrastructure was third.
Funny how perspective can change a story eh?
