    Clearly shows how the world felt about us just five months post 9/11 and years before any war in Iraq

    And this poll shows how stupid many in America are.

    I think the arabs might be right on target.

    Wolfowitz clearly had an invasion of Iraq in mind prior to 9/11 (other leading neo-conservatives probably did as well). Who is to say this administration would not have tried to invade under a different pretext had 9/11 not occurred?

    I question that. I have no doubts that Clinton wanted Hussein gone, but if the Iraq Liberation Act is any indicator, he would have favored a less direct method than a full ground invasion. Perhaps arming and supplying Huessien opponents and utilitizing clandestine forces.

    Regardless of what Clinton would have preferred, it does not change the fact that the Iraqis are probably correct.

    Let's see. Clinton says, just the other day, he wanted OBL dead. He also says he left a plan in tact to do such, yet his own people that were 'left behind' say not so.

    So you may be right, proving Clinton the liar so many on the right say he is.

    I do not believe your statement is 100% true. Did he want to kill Bin Laden--probably, would he have invaded the middle east to do so: I doubt it. I could be wrong.

    Of course it is assumed that every liberal lives and dies by Bill Clinton, but this is false. I do not agree with everything Clinton did and I especially would not agree with an invasion of a middle eastern country.

    My bad on they typo, I had Iraq on my mind. The muslims that were polled are probably correct.
