They won't do any good because China and Russia are not on board. I have the feeling that Israel is going to take care of Iran in some way.

The sentiments changed with the situation, so I don't think that linkage of any sort will provide insights.

EDIT - Your poll question has to do with the invasion, not the occupation. If we isolate the invasion as Saddam's shell game with the weapon inspectors, it sheds a different light on the issue.
You really make a good point. I voted as thinking both Iraq and illegals are bad. However I supported the war in the beginning and am one of those people who boycotted the Dixie Chicks. I actually still don't listen to them but only because their music is not as good as other country artists.

Most of America initially supported going to Iraq, bak when we thought they had weapons and were connected to 9-11. Back then, the only people who didn't support the war were hippies and left wing liberals, the same people who would welcome illegal aliens with open arms.
