47% of Americans have VERY selective memories...

Situation stabilized, troops are home and no longer dying, so people are looking back at a relatively stable and democratic Iraq and thinking "well that wasn't so bad"

I would love to hear the question: "The War in Iraq cost over a trillion dollars and the lives of over 4000 US soldiers.  Knowing this, do you think the outcome was worth the price paid?"

@Tero 

20-30% had never opposed the Iraq war.  I don't think their memories are selective, just the areas they prioritize are very different from what we do.

A question to be asked at the same time:

Can you find Iraq on a map of the world?
