US Poll: More people don't believe Iraq war reduced terror threat: "A growing number of Americans, seven in 10, doesn't think the war in Iraq has reduced the threat of terrorism, according to a poll out Wednesday. Fewer than half felt that way in April, during the war. President Bush and members of his administration frequently say the efforts in Iraq are central to winning the war on terror. The poll by the Program on International Policy Attitudes at the University of Maryland also found strong support, 71%, for the United Nations to take the lead in helping establish a stable government in Iraq. That's up from half who felt that way in April... Four in five agreed that Iraqis should be able to choose their own government, even if that government is unfriendly to the United States."

Yet another remarkable poll, which clearly illustrates once again how government policy in modern 'democracies' ignores the wishes of the public. The poll also gives the lie to the fundamentally mendacious 'war on terror.'
