The US public is not demmanding a pull out from Itraq
The American people always have the last word.
So what should the world get from all of the Iraq debate? What is the message?
The message is this:
1) The American people are not in a pull out mode. There is no polling evidence to prove that. There is a lot of noise but that's all there is.
"a new survey found that 56 percent of the public thinks that efforts to establish a stable democracy in the country will succeed.
President Bush's approval ratings have grown tepid -- but have not tanked -- among Americans.
Overall, Mr. Bush garners a 40 percent favorability among the public, with 52 percent disapproving of him and 8 percent "unsure."
However, 52 percent approve of his efforts to fight terrorism, and 86 percent say defense against terrorism should be a top foreign policy priority, followed by the protection of American jobs (84 percent) and preventing the spread of weapons of mass destruction (75 percent).

2) The Iraq war battle is within the Democrat party. The left wing wants the party to call for immediate withdrawal. Fortunately, only 3 Democrats had the courate to stand up and vote for that last week.
As Donald Lambro wrote in The Washington Times:
"Two pivotal, but underreported, developments are overlooked in the escalating political battle over the war in Iraq.
First, no matter how disenchanted Americans have become about the war to establish a strong, stable pro-Western democracy in the heart of the Middle East's terrorist breeding ground, a majority still opposes our pulling out before we have achieved that mission.
A recent poll by The Washington Post/ABC News found 52 percent want the U.S. troops kept in Iraq until Iraqis' security forces can maintain civil order. That hasn't changed.
Despite a fierce Democratic offensive in Congress for withdrawing U.S. military forces next year, if not sooner, the poll found only about 1-in-5 believe we should leave right away."
The bottom line is that the American people are not buying all of this doom and gloom.
