Came across this poll today on the BBC website, interesting, thought we were told hope was coming to the Iraqi people...more coming out later, also focuses on the huge political divide of the Iraqi people. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/6464277.stm Only 18% of Iraqis have confidence in US and coalition troops, while opinion is almost evenly split on whether to have confidence in Iraq's government. About 86% of those questioned expressed concern about someone in their household being a victim of violence. More than 2,000 people were questioned. The poll was commissioned by the BBC, ABC News, ARD German TV and USA Today. The survey was conducted by D3 Systems. The latest findings contrast strongly with the outlook among Iraqis in 2005, when respondents to a similar survey were generally hopeful about the future. Asked whether they thought reconstruction efforts in Iraq had been effective, some 67% said they felt they had not.
