Interesting New York Times article:

“In a survey conducted Aug. 17-24 for ABC News, the BBC and NHK, the Japanese broadcaster, among a random national sample of 2,212 Iraqis, 72 percent in Anbar expressed no confidence whatsoever in United States forces. Seventy-six percent said the United States should withdraw now — up from 49 percent when we polled there in March, and far above the national average.”

Worse, nearly every citizen in Anbar said attacking coalition forces was “acceptable.” It’s not all bad though according to an ABC poll conducted in march, almost no citizen had any confidence in Iraqi security forces and now 38% do.
