That is pretty shocking development and, I would assume, unprecedented.

It is shocling. "in this year's poll only 41 percent of the military said the U.S. should have gone to war in Iraq in the first place,"

So which is it? Is it 1/3 approve or is it 1/2? Both #'s are quoated in the thread. Who did the poll on the troops and what kind of questions did they ask?

Different quota might happen in different years and different polls, n'est-ce pas?

The poll was done - as said in that report - by the Military Times.

Just for a moment, let's imagine that it is accurate that more and more soldiers are opposed to this war. What would your reaction be to that development?

Got a comment on the thread or just on me? I'm just questioning the article thats all. It says 1/3 and then a few lines later it says 50%. I'm just asking which one it is, because it can't be both.

And YOU somehow believe that you are qualified to determine the scientific efficacy of polling questions and the polling process.

Here Baldy, pull the other one.

Before you seek such lofty unattainable goals, you're going to have to learn to do more than read. You have to understand that reading entails comprehension. You have to learn to NOT read over material just because it doesn't mesh with your jaundiced viewpoint.

"Barely one-third of service members approve of the way the president is handling the war, ..."

"- in 2004 - 83 percent of poll re spondents thought success in Iraq was likely. This year, that number has shrunk to 50 percent."

Here is almost the exact same article from the military times website.

http://www.militarycity.com/polls/2006_main.php

You obviously have trouble reading.

35% approve of the way Bush is handling the war.
50% think success in Iraq is likely.

The 1/3 and 1/2 numbers represent different questions.
