Well, if we're going to be on the topic of snide little attacks on the other's credibility, I might as well point out the hypocrisy in such stone-cold assurance of the viability of the Iraq poll - in a nation where a national census would be impossible and a democratic vote only slightly less so as it stands - as compared to the myriad polls conducted right here in Australia that are so easily fobbed off as irrelevant by the Coallition. Polls indicated that before the war, the majority of australians did not support troops being sent to Iraq. They were anyway, and we are in a largely democratic country. Your single poll from Iraq, which I would suggest is by no means indicative of the entire population simply because of the logistical impossibility of getting a good cross-section in the current climate, is taken from a population in a largely anarchial and un-democratic state with a variety of pressures larger and beyond that of the people's will exerting a force. I'd say that it my comment that Iraq seems hellbent on a course to an Islamic Theocracy is quite fair, considering it is the most likely outcome at the moment, irregardless of your polls accuracy.
