Interesting polling data from CalPundit Kevin Drum:
44% think American casualties have been unacceptable, up from 28% a couple of months ago.
72% are concerned that we will get “bogged down in a long and costly peacekeeping mission.”
Taken together, these two things don’t bode well for our willingness to stick it out in Iraq. We seem willing to support war in the abstract, but rather less willing to support the necessary followup. That’s a bad combination.
In, as they say, deed.
