Most American troops in Iraq believe that the US should withdraw within the next year, according to the first poll of US military personnel in Iraq.
President George W. Bush, whose overall approval rating fell to a new low of 34 per cent this week, has repeatedly said the US would finish the mission in Iraq. But a Zogby International/Le Moyne College poll found that only 23 per cent of US troops believed that they should stay “as long as they are needed”.
Seventy-two per cent of troops said the US should withdraw within 12 months; 29 per cent said they should pull out immediately.

Bush won’t listen to the United Nations.
Bush won’t listen to international law.
Bush won’t listen to the tens of millions who have marched against his bloody oil crusade.
Do you think he’ll listen to his own soliders? To the people actually doing the dying while he sits comfortably at home, telling everyone how he will see the job through?
I repeat: if you’re a Republican reading this and you’re pro-war, join up. Join the US army and go to Iraq so someone who doesn’t want to be fighting Bush’s War can come home to their family, safe and sound.
Put up or shut up.
But funnily enough, the warhawks always seem to be rich, old men who remain safe while sending the young to die for their “noble causes.” Another matter in which there is no difference between Bush and Bin Laden: both urge their followers to sacrifice their lives whilst staying well out of harm’s way themselves.
Funny that, innit?
