75% of Iraqi Sunnis now support the resistance
An overwhelming 75% of Iraq's Sunni population now supports the guerrillas in their fight to end the country's ongoing occupation, according to a leaked Pentagon report.

And so it goes on. Back in 2003 only some 14% of the Sunnis supported the guerrilla fight, but three years of occupation have increased to numbers to unstoppable levels.

What will the warmongers say about this? Probably nothing - far better to try and distract attention with fantasies of genocide in Sudan than face up to the reality of a failed aggression that they cheered on.

Gee. I thought the numbers were a lot higher a lot earlier. These were trotted out the "week of flowers" -- i.e. the first week of the invasion -- or sumthin? And not that we should trust the enemy's stats, eh. But when that's all you have to go on...

IMO the reason the number wouldn't be 98% is because there are a lot of scared, dumb people -- usually @ 20% of the population everywhere -- who believe everything the government tells them. Like how here the Occupation is saving them from something even worse.

Iran invasion? Nukes? BRING `EM ON I say -- if only to save the people of the planet from a Thousand-Year anglo-amerikkkan Reich. You heard Bush's U.N. speech. We can't say we weren't warned. Chávez sez to rise up?? Where's the line forming!?

Yup, as you say, all we have to go on are the Americans own figures.

75% is amazing for that reason - people were prepared, I suppose, to talk when under occupation and give this opinion.
