Americans agree with the Big Guys. War is a failure.

Gallup: Americans Feel We Are 'Worse Off' Because of Iraq War:
"Gallup asked Americans if the war in Iraq had made things better off, the same, or worse off for six entities: the American people, the Iraqi people, the strength and preparedness of the U.S. military, the war on terrorism, the prospects for democracy in the Middle East, and the image of the United States around the world.

The result for that final category was the most clearcut: 6 in 10 Americans said the image of the U.S. was 'worse off,' with only 11% saying 'better off.'

Significantly, 42% said that the people of our country were worse off, with 26% saying better off and 31% 'the same. Gallup called this 'a decidedly negative tilt in attitudes about the impact of the war on the home front.' While in this category, as in all others, Republicans had a more positive views, still only 48% wuld say that Americans were 'better off' because of the war."
