virus: Poll of US opinion concerning Iraq attack

Date: Tue Sep 03 2002 - 00:24:57 MDT

A majority of Americans support military action to oust Iraqi
president Saddam Hussein, although most want the United States
to gain approval from other countries first, according to a Los
Angeles Times poll.

A survey of 1,372 adults nationwide taken last month found that
59 percent of Americans believe the United States should take
military action to remove Hussein. Just 29 percent were opposed
and 12 percent were unsure.

An even larger majority of 64 percent said they would support a
ground attack on Iraq if President Bush decided to launch one,
with 28 percent opposed.

However, 61 percent of those who support military action said
they believe the United States should attack Iraq only if the
international community supports the move.
