BBC News reports that eight out of 10 people in the Arab world have a negative view of the US. Wow… no shit ya think?
By extension, governments supported by the US are unpopular, found the survey, which was released in Washington. A recent BBC World Service survey found views of the US had started to improve by 4% globally, although they remained negative in the Arab world.
Only 6% of Arabs believe the US troop surge in Iraq has worked, according to the latest poll carried out by by the University of Maryland and Zogby International.
According to this poll, a majority of Arabs believe that if US troops withdraw from Iraq, Iraqis would be able to bridge their differences, the survey found.Which is odd and show how accurate polls can be… a ABC/BBC poll conducted in Iraq and released in March, appeared to show a 20% increase in the number of Iraqis who felt the surge was succeeding and described the security situation as good.
