60 percent of Americans oppose war...Gatorade latest WMD!

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sixty percent of Americans oppose the U.S. war in Iraq, the highest number since polling on the subject began with the commencement of the war in March 2003, according to poll results and trends released Wednesday.


"And a majority of poll respondents said they would support the withdrawal of at least some U.S. troops by the end of the year, according to results from the Opinion Research Corporation poll conducted last week on behalf of CNN. The corporation polled 1,047 adult Americans by telephone.

According to trends, the number of poll respondents who said they did not support the Iraq war has steadily risen as the war stretched into a second and then a third year. In the most recent poll, 36 percent said they were in favor of the war -- half of the peak of 72 percent who said they were in favor of the war as it began.

Sixty-one percent, however, said they believed at least some U.S. troops should be withdrawn from Iraq by the end of the year. Of those, 26 percent said they would favor the withdrawal of all troops, while 35 percent said not all troops should be withdrawn. Another 34 percent said they believed the current level of troops in Iraq should be maintained.

Asked about a timetable for withdrawal of troops from Iraq, 57 percent of poll respondents said they supported the setting of such a timetable, while 40 percent did not and 4 percent had no opinion. Only half the sample, or about 524 people, was asked the timetable question."


"The Bush administration has maintained that setting a timetable or deadline for withdrawal would only help terrorists."

So just how does the neofascist Bush regime respond to such an unsettling poll that indicates more and more Americans are slipping from their hypnotic grip?

Why another terror scare, that's how!

From today's headlines:

-Bush says U.S. still at risk of attack

-Foiled plot brings new security, delays

-Air travel in chaos after terror threat 'busted'

People, when will we learn, whenever something at "Camp Bush" is perceived as a threat to their stranglehold on power over the people, they roll out a cloud of fear to force you back under their spell. The latest CNN poll (above) and the loss of Lieberman to Lamont in CT - if you consult the Karl Rove manual on oppression and tyranny - it states, "during boon periods of negative sentiment from the masses, a faux, bogus national crisis, such as a terrorist attack, is necessary to quell the restlessness and restore a Bushonian Order."

Honestly, just look at what some of the MSM news is reporting,

"Due to the nature of the threat revealed by this investigation, we are prohibiting any liquids, including beverages, hair gels, and lotions from being carried on the airplane," a DHS statement said.

"The plot was "intended to be mass murder on an unimaginable scale..."

And the winner is:

Plotters were to carry a "British version of Gatorade," detonate it with iPod or cell phone, source says.

I can't possible even begin to comment on the ridiculousness of that last statement...

Gatorade as a weapon of mass destruction?!
