Iraq: Some Want the Plan to Fail

A recent nationwide poll asked the question, "Do you personally want the Iraq plan President Bush announced last week to succeed?"

The IBD reported the poll as showing 63% answering "yes" — they do want the plan to succeed whether or not they agree with it. This seems to hold true for both Republicans (79%) and Independents (63%). What is scary is that nearly half of the Democrats report that they do not want, or aren't sure they want, the plan to succeed.

The meaning, whatever it is, can't be a good thing.

Yeah, that's a disturbing figure. As disgusted as I am with the current administration, I'd be very happy to see a turnaround in Iraq. I don't see it happening, but I would like to be wrong.

What possible good could be the result of failing? How sad that as a nation we have those who would see our defeat as a good thing. The "I told you so" factor must be a great motivator.
