A Sondagem

Johan Norberg comenta a recente songadem realizada no Iraque.

The Iraq war was more popular in Iraq than in almost any other country in the world. Almost half of the Iraqis supported the war in a survey conducted by Oxford Research International. That?s less of a paradox than some think. Oppression, torture and murder are seldom popular among those who are oppressed, tortured and murdered. 56 percent of the Iraqis said that life was better now than before the war, less than 19 per cent said it was worse. More than 70 per cent said that they wanted a democracy ? and in an election only 1.7 percent would vote for Saddam Hussein?s the Baathist party. Judging by some reactions, Saddam would get more votes in some European countries.
