BUT DEMOCRATS HAVE A HAMMERLOCK ON THAT ONE THIRD:

Poll: 57% in U.S. oppose swift pullout, cite instability (Will Lester, Dec. 18, 2005, Associated Press)

A solid majority of Americans oppose immediately pulling U.S. troops out of Iraq, citing as a main reason the desire to finish the job of stabilizing the country, an AP-Ipsos poll found.

About 57 percent of those surveyed said the U.S. military should stay until Iraq is stabilized, while 36 percent favor an immediate troop withdrawal. [...]

Only one in 10 said they wanted to stay in Iraq to fight terrorism; just 3 percent said to protect U.S. national security.


So much for the war being about our own national security.

Sounds like a false distinction to me. Aren't fighting terrorism and protecting U.S. national security the same thing, at least in this instance?
