Iraqis have more faith in their government than the U.S.


VA National Guardsmen return home

There's no doubt that the Iraqi political system is in turmoil. But Iraqis would rather have uncertain domestic control than be told by the United States how to run their government.
That's the conclusion of a new Gallup poll which surveyed Iraqis.
It finds that Iraqi confidence in their leadership is rising. While their approval of U.S. leadership is falling.
Imagine that. Iraqis wanting to control their own destinies. And resenting being told what to do by an invading force!
The thing is, they are not alone in this opinion. Gallup conducted another poll, of Americans. That poll finds that Americans overwhelmingly do NOT want U.S. troops renewing combat missions in Iraq - even if Iraqi forces are unable to maintain security.
Common ground can now be found between the Iraqi and American people. Let's hope that Washington is listening to them both.
