Insurgency Gains Alarming Support Among Iraqs Sunni Muslims

A confidential Pentagon assessment finds that an overwhelming majority of Iraq's Sunni Muslims support the insurgency that has been fighting against U.S. troops and the Iraqi government, ABC News has learned.

Officials won't say how the assessment was made but found that support for the insurgency has never been higher, with approximately 75 percent of the country's Sunni Muslims in agreement.

When the Pentagon started surveying Iraqi public opinion in 2003, Sunni support for the insurgents stood at approximately 14 percent.

Right then, give Saddam command of the Coalition of the Willing and lets get this nonsese over with.
Excellent, promise him military pension and any resources he requires to stablise Iraq. When he has done this, ship him off to Cuba/Venzeula/N Korea to enjoy his military pension. Replace him with Wolfawitz or another neo-con who can then demonstrate the neo-con philosopohy can be really be exported (NOT!) and when its all fcuked up again bring Saddam out of retirement again..... :wink:
