The Gallup poll found that 71 percent of the capital city's residents felt U.S. troops should not leave in the next few months. Just 26 percent felt the troops should leave that soon.
Almost six in 10 in the poll, 58 percent, said that U.S. troops in Baghdad have behaved fairly well or very well, with one in 10 saying ``very well.'' Twenty 20 percent said the troops have behaved fairly badly and 9 percent said very badly.
I wonder what Kofi Anan and the French, now advocating for a speedy turnover of sovereignty to the Iraqis and withdrawl of occupying troops, have to say to the people of Baghdad. Insofar as the desires of the Iraqi people are known, they don't seem to be particularly anxious for the coalition to withdrawl. [Hat tip: Instapundit]
