POLL: Iraqis want US out of Iraq

I missed this PIPA poll when it came out in September 2006.

The results are pretty straight forward, and despite the foreign policy establishments talking point about civil war and an even greater bloodbath after the US pulls out, Shia and Sunni Iraqis seem to roughly agree on wanting the US out and agree that it will result in a more peaceful Iraq. They also agree that we won't leave even if asked to.

All charts from PIPA.

The numbers in this chart shows the difference between January and September 2006. Most troubling is that the Shia (the largest ethnic group in Iraq) went from a minority approving of attacks on US forces to a solid 62% majority.
