Even the Iraqis don't think the "surge" is working

I've made a silent pledge to myself not to post that often in Iraq, not because it isn't important, but because it's always the same shit. How often can you point to something and say that it's an utter failure? But, I did feel this deserved mentioning. Bush, Petraeus, and a few other prominent people think that the surge is working. However, not only most Americans, but even Iraqis who were polled don't think it's working. In a poll conducted by the Washington Post, 7 out of 10 Iraqis say that the buildup of U.S. troops has made the security situation worse. Now, if we did this to give democracy to Iraqis, if that's really true, than why don't we heed these results that they don't want us there, and leave? But, I almost forgot, Bush doesn't govern by polls (the will of the people).
