Shock: Americans Don't Share Democrats' Enthusiasm For Losing Wars

There are a lot of Americans who favor a defeat in Iraq simply to deal America a bloody "teachable moment" and repudiate a president they don't like.

Alas, for the Democrats, such people do not yet constitute an actual majority:

57% believe “The Iraq War is a key part of the global war on terrorism.”

57% “support finishing the job in Iraq, that is, keeping the troops there until the Iraqi government can maintain control and provide security for its people.

50% want our troops should stay and “do whatever it takes to restore order until the Iraqis can govern and provide security to their country” while only 17% favor immediate withdrawal

56% believe “Even if they have concerns about his war policies, Americans should stand behind the President in Iraq because we are at war.”

53% believe “The Democrats are going too far, too fast in pressing the President to withdraw the troops from Iraq.”

The Democrats' and the media's (but I repeat myself) "Mission Accomplished" defeat lap seems premature. If only those baby-killing, raping, murderbot American soldiers would just do their duty and stop fighting, Bush -- and America -- would finally get the comeuppance so richly deserved.
