The fact of the matter is neither the U.K nor the U.S is winning hearts and minds in Iraq, 'we' are seen more as the aggressors in the whole situation. Every force in Iraq, whether that be U.S or the U.K to Japan or Austrailia, we are all seen and preched to be the enemy.

I distinctly remember seeing the President on the deck of a ship, with a big banner behind him proudly proclaiming MISSON ACOMPLISHED.
I also remember VP Cheney and Rumsfeld saying that we would be greeted in Iraq as heroes and the Iraqi oil would pay for the war. well.....
I am truly astonished at the short memory of the American People!

It never fails to amaze me how many so called "enlightened" individuals still sit in ignorance of that event. The "Mission Accomplished" banner was for the crew on that ship, who had indeed accomplished their mission. It was not meant for the whole war. This is common knowledge. Deny Ignorance.
