The Real State of Affairs in Iraq

Max Boot elucidates. Worth noting:

The Pew Research Center and the Council on Foreign Relations just released a survey of American elites that found that 64% of military officers are confident that we will succeed in establishing a stable democracy in Iraq. The comparable figures for journalists and academics are 33% and 27%, respectively.

The American people and this country's long-term interests are being poorly served by the Democratic voices of defeatism, and their willing allies in the MSM.

And a recent Harris poll shows that only 32% of the general public believe that Iraq will successfully develop a stable democratic government.

Given this, you should be cheering the optimism of the journalists.

Has it entered your mind that perhaps the pessimism of the American public is due to the terrible job the pessimistic liberal press is doing of covering the WHOLE story of our experiences in Iraq? And I don't believe that poll number. It's too low.
