Iraqi Public Opinion

A fairly obvious point, but one that many people apparently need reminding of, from the war diary of Iraqi dissident Kanan Makiya:

Do not believe any commentator who says that a rising surge of "nationalism" is preventing Iraqis from greeting U.S. and British troops in the streets with open arms. What is preventing them from rising up and taking over the streets of their cities is confusion about American intentions and fear of the murderous brown-shirt thugs known as the Fedayeen Saddam, who are leading the small-arms-fire attacks on American and British soldiers.

BBC commentators seems especially oblivious to this concept.
