BAGHDAD - A translation of the citizen
issued a German research company (Zkba) at the beginning of this month, a report on the results of the survey that was conducted on Iraq and his political future after the withdrawal of U.S. forces. This has included the questionnaire, which was conducted in the ninth month of this year, Iraq and six Arab countries in addition to Iran and the United States in trying to figure out trends about the effects of the war in Iraq and its future and the region after the withdrawal. And how the Iraqis see the world through it. The company has reached to the important observations from the results of the questionnaire.
Which included four axes:
the first axis: Iraq after eight years: have included questions on several topics, you have improved or worsened the situation? Do conditions have improved after 2006? What things have improved and that did not improve and who benefited from the situation change Is it really worth it.
Axis II: Will the indicators withdrawal carries positive or negative? What are your feelings towards the withdrawal? Concern after the withdrawal, see the United States and the vision of Iraq. Optimism and pessimism during the next two years.
Third: look to the United States and the world: What is the contribution of other nations / What are the countries that were its contribution to positive or negative, and the future role of the United States.
Axis IV: Overview of approach for political leaders and other important issues: Democracy Will it succeed? Confidence in the future, the Ba'ath Party, what are important issues, trends toward Iraqi leaders.
1 - differences between the components of the Iraqi people. At the level of the United States there is strong disagreement between the orientations of the two parties Alrisien. At the level of the six Arab states in general a negative view about what is happening in Iraq and a more positive after the withdrawal, more positive than the Iraqis themselves. Ironically the only one in Tunisia, perhaps because of Anhaalathm elections.
2 - All of these trends on the first axis is that the Iraqis are better off or worse than they were before entering the U.S. forces. Conflicting opinions of Iraqis, half of Shiites and Sunnis see the worst, while 60% of Kurds say the best. Overall, 25% of Iraqis believe that things are similar. In the United States 58% of Republicans believe that if the Iraqis the best shared so only 24% of Democrats and the strange thing is that 44% of Americans are not sure and maybe see things is different.
3 - At the same time, every six people from ten in Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Lebanon, they see things worse and shared 50% of the Arabs in the UAE in the same opinion. There is a split among the Egyptians about that but half the Tunisian see things the same.
4 - and when it comes to the role of the effects of war on the specific aspects in Iraq, we find intersections between Iraqi groups and parties in the U.S.. Kurds seem to think that their lives have improved in many areas. 90% of them see an improvement in security conditions. 70% see an improvement in education and 53% think more freely and at the same time 85% of the Arab Shiites and Sunnis see the bad things, especially security and both believe that the political situation, education is bad.
5 - outlook for the future, it seems that there is a convergence between the Americans and Iraqis, at least on the surface . The withdrawal of U.S. troops for the Iraqis well Xi. Does not hide 35% of Iraqis concerned of the withdrawal while 25% happy to do so and 35% of Iraqis see it the same. He feels every six of ten Iraqis concern of civil war and increased violence and terrorism and the deterioration of the Iraqi economy and fear of Zaaadh regional influence, and it seems that the Jordanian Arabs on their own share of Iraqi anxiety and obsessions.
6 - and the Iraqi outlook for the world and their expectations of the States to contribute to the development of Iraq. Results appear Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and China enjoy a high degree of all Iraqis. As for Kuwait and Iran, he headed the Iraqi negative. As for what the other regional countries for example, there is a difference Kurds feel favorably toward the United States, while Iraq's Arabs otherwise. As for Turkey's role and contribution to find support at Iraq's Arabs over the Kurds.
7 - Iraqis in the deep differences about the future U.S. role. About 44% of them see the U.S. as a source of foreign interference and the others do not want to have any role. But 54% of Iraqis tell of its investment in Iraq's development, protection or the state, which must have a special relationship with Iraq.
8 - As the Iraqis how they view important issues can be a frustrating. About 1 of 5 Iraqis believe that democracy can work in Iraq. And 2 of 5 love to tell, but democracy is not possible to believe that. And 1 in 5 do not want democracy because of the lack of conviction will succeed. The conclusion we can say all six of the ten want democracy or six of the ten do not believe that democracy will succeed. And here lies the difference.
9 - What are the concerns of most Iraqis? Employment scale of extremism and terrorism, work to end corruption and improve education.
10 - When a question was directed to the Iraqis about the attitudes towards their political leaders there to attract high. He received Allawi, leader of the Iraqi List, the best among Iraqi political leaders and has strong support from Iraqi Sunnis and Kurds, but not favored by the Shiite Arabs. The Prime Minister Maliki has the support is very limited and Sunni Kurds and Shiite, to support the edge. Interestingly, the cleric Moqtada al-Sadr had the support of little more than Shiite al-Maliki in Shiite Sadr, with the difference that has the support of the year I have a very limited and similar to the owners, but his position is relatively better than the Maliki, the Kurds.
