Poll shows 7 in 10 Afghans support US forces. Surprised?

"Nationwide, 10 percent of Afghans support the Taliban, but the insurgents are backed by a higher percent of the population — 27 percent — in the country's southwest, the poll said."

Read the article here.

Mother Jones Chart of the Day: Afghanistan

"only 8% of Afghans now think that attacks on U.S. forces are justified. That's way down both from 2005 and from last year." Wonderful!

Did you see the poll that they did last week in AF?
8 out of 6 Afgans can't read, write or count...
so the polls are all messed up.

It's not surprising that the insurgency is strongest in the part of the country where the most opium is grown.

GI Kate, no link, it was a failed joke. I guess I have to go back to Combat Comic school.

8 out of 6 wasn't funny I guess...I'll try it after everybody has had a few beers next time....

anyway, thanks for your service sister.
