72% of Troops Favor Withdrawal

The first poll of U.S troops in Iraq shows an overwhelming majority favor withdrawal in the next year, according to a LeMoyne College/Zogby survey.

72% surveyed believe that the U.S should pull out in the next year and 29% of those believe that they should pull out "immediately."

93% said that removing weapons of mass destruction is not a reason for U.S troops being there. 68% believe that the primary reason for being there was to remove Sadam Hussein from power. Only 24% believe that establishing a democracy that will serve as a model for the rest of the Middle East was the main or major reason for the war.

definitely the anti-war movement is gathering steam. I suspect that as the 3 year anniversary of the invasion approaches, we'll see a groundswell of support for the cause. One can only hope.
