Today's Not So Good News From Iraq

47 percent of Iraqis approve of attacks on American forces, but there were large differences among ethnic and religious groups. Among Sunni Muslims, 88 percent said they approved of the attacks. That approval was found among 41 percent of Shiite Muslims and 16 percent of Kurds.

And if Sistani were to ever encourage attacks on the US troops, the support for attacks in the Shiite population would double.
