Perspective 

According to a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll of Iraqis, 55 percent of the respondents have an unfavorable view of the United States.

That sounds bad, right? No. If only 55% don't like us, break out the champagne, because we're setting records for U.S. popularity in a Muslim country.

Check out this Pew poll from a month or so ago.

In Turkey, 63% had an unfavorable view of the United States. In Pakistan it was 61%; in Jordan, 93%; and in Morocco, 68%.

In other words, Iraqis, the ones who should be angriest about any U.S. misbehavior because they have to live with it every day, are the least angry. Maybe the occupiers are doing some good, and Iraqis know it. Hmm?
