Optimism in Iraq

Speaking of Iraq (see previous post), a new opinion poll "suggests Iraqis are generally optimistic about their lives, in spite of the violence that has plagued Iraq since the US-led invasion," according to the BBC. However, "security fears still dominate most Iraqis' thoughts. Their priority for the coming year would be the restoration of security and the withdrawal of foreign troops. A majority of the 1,700 people questioned wanted a united Iraq with a strong central government."

See the BBC article for more poll results and analysis.
