Media out of touch with Iraqis
...Much of the US media has always wanted to lose the war in Iraq, becuase they never wanted to fight it to begin with. As soon as we marched into Baghdad, they started finding ways to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
In a recent poll, more Iraqis, who live in Iraq, say Iraq is headed the right direction than Americans who merely watch TV reports about Iraq or read newspaper reports about Iraq.
Amid the drumbeat of so-called sectarian violence from the Legacy Media, one would think that Iraqis would be to throw in the towel or at least throwdown with each other at a moments notice.
But that is not the case.
Eighty-nine percent of Iraqis think a unity government is important.
Fifty-four percent approve of the unity government with only 25% disapproving. (That is higher than Americans who approve of the current make up of Congress and the Administration.)
Seventy-eight percent of Iraqis oppose partitioning the country along ethnic or religious lines.
The only group supporting partitioning are the Kurds.
And 70% of Iraqis do not know someone who moved because of religious conflict.
So, American watching the Legacy Media report on Iraq think the situation is much worse than the average Iraqi who actually lives in Iraq.
