When opinions are considered concerning the success of the Great and Glorious Surge in Iraq implemented by the orders of Our Great and Glorious Leader, one opinion is kind of, like, left out of the discussion. The opinion of the Iraqi people themselves.
A silly Reverend, like myself, would think that the opinions of the Iraqi people would be important as the Dear Leader marches and surges all that freedom around in the middle east, you know, liberating every Muslim in sight.
Here's the latest on what the Iraqi people think. Not that it makes any difference, at all, because St. John McCain, following his Leader's...ummm....lead, has spoken his opinion and according to the "maverick" the surge is "absolutely working" not just appearing to work but "absolutely working".
About 70% of Iraqis believe security has deteriorated in the area covered by the US military "surge" of the past six months, an opinion poll suggests.
The survey by the BBC, ABC News and NHK of more than 2,000 people across Iraq also suggests that nearly 60% see attacks on US-led forces as justified.
This rises to 93% among Sunni Muslims compared to 50% for Shia. Link
Of course, no one cares what the Iraqi people think. What would they know? Hell, they simply live there. They experience every day, outside of the Green Zone, the success or failure of what the Churchillian American Leaders have done in their country. So, once again, what could they possibly know about any of it? Silly Iraqis.
The "straight shooter" McCain, the Great and Glorious Dear General Petraeus and the even more Glorious and Greatest of Dear Leaders, President Bush, all know "absolutely" that the Great and Glorious Surge is working. No other opinions are necessary.
And no other opinions will be heard.
Update: Here's another account that in all likelihood won't rise to the same credibility levels as Our Great and Glorious Neo-Conservative Leader Gods....
Such grim volunteer work isn't entirely new to the region. Under former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, the sheik said, they often buried more than three dozen unidentified corpses a month.
After the U.S.-led invasion in 2003, that number rose to around 250 a month, he said. Following last year's Askariya bombing, the volunteers buried as many as 2,000 per month. The numbers now are back in the low hundreds, the sheik said. Link
This Iraqi man shares his opinion that under Saddam the random and senseless killing was much less than the random and senseless killing that has occurred for FOUR years now under U.S. rule.
But this man only collects the dead bodies.....what does he know about anything?
