    Yes, soem were happy, but more were unhappy with americas occupation.
    This is not true.

    BAGHDAD, Iraq, Sept. 24 (UPI) -- Nearly two-thirds of Baghdad residents say the removal of Saddam Hussein was worth the hardships they have endured, a report said Wednesday.

    Despite the collapse of government and civic institutions, looting and violence and shortages of water and electricity, 67 percent of 1,178 Iraqis told a Gallup survey team within five years, their lives will be better than before the U.S.-led invasion.

    Only 8 percent of those queried said they believed their lives would be worse off as a result of the military campaign to remove Saddam and his Baath Party leadership, the New York Times reported.

    The survey, which was conducted in late August and early September, cut across the ethnically diverse landscape of the capital.

    The results revealed Iraqis in the capital still maintain a great deal of skepticism about the motives of the United States and Britain.

    Residents said they hold France and its president, Jacques Chirac, in higher regard than President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

    I think, this is the only poll that has been conducted in Iraq so far and I would have thought that support would be even higher in the rest of the country.

    That Bush illegally came to power through;

    1) Banning of normal people without a criminal record, from voting. (because they represented a close match to known felons)

    2) The counting of undated, unsigned, and post-dated military votes

    3) The stopping of recounts by the supreme court as it looked like Gore was going to sneak them.

    I could go into much more detail, but this is sufficient for now.
    do you really honestly think that? because gore was the one who didnt want military votes counted! and bush couldn't ban anyone, for one thing, he wasn't president yet and didnt have that power.....everything that happened happened under the US constitution, ive had to read, memorize it, study it, and so i kno that what happened was legal!

    This is what is called statistically weak. 1000 people is not enough, even a medical trial uses about 3000+.

    and proves my point, the iraquis sees Bush as a baboon.

    Bush is almost as stupid as Hitler, and certainly thinks very much like him. I wonder just how far he would go if he could. And does anyone else think he looks like some kid taking in the sights whenever he appears on TV? I'm actually serious here, he just doesn't have that face that you would expect from someone of such power.

    Also mate, be aware we have segematation as well. We pay for our healthcare, if you cant afford it then tough. You'll be stuck with 2nd rate care.
    Ok, I accept your point that Iraq had good health-care before the Iran War. But you seem to argue that it is America's fault that that's not the case anymore.

    However, it was first and foremost Saddam who ruined his country.

    As for the sanctions they were UN imposed and the fact they lasted for so long is down to the French and Russians who were trying to avoid more drastic action that would have resolved the situation.

    It really wasn't.

    True, Gore wasn't keen on the military votes being counted due to traditionally strong Republican support. However, many illegal votes (i.e. those that were not correctly filled out) were counted (in traditionally Republican areas).

    344 ballots had no evidence that they were cast before election day.
    183 ballots were postmarked in the US.
    96 ballots lacked appropriate witness info.
    169 ballots came from unregistered voters, had incorrectly signed envelopes, or came from people who hadn't requested a ballot.
    5 ballots came after the Nov 17th deadline.

    Bush didn't ban the voters, Katherine Harris (Dubya campaign cochairwoman and Florida secretary of State, in charge of elections) did.
