Support for the war against Iraq continues to fall in the USA.
As casualties climb, war weariness sets in. That was as true in Korea and Vietnam as it is today in Iraq. The difference is the speed with which the American population are rejecting this war. By June 2004, with the war only a little over a year old, just over half the population thought that the war was a mistake. That 50% mark was not reached in the Vietnam era until August 1968, seven years after the war started.
