Ok. There wasn't any sarcasm in that...

I just meant...

Do a poll...

Let every person in the world count for one...

How many thought the US should have invaded (at the time in which it did)?

How many think the US should withdraw their troops (right now)?

I think you will find that within america... the numbers will be close.
I think you will find that once every person in the world gets one vote...

That the overwhelming majority of people around the world would say no to invasion and that the toops should withdraw.

So...

If that really is the case
(is that seriously debated - maybe it is?)

If that really is the case...

Then how come the US gets to override the wishes of the majority of citizens in the world?

If it is seriously debated...

Well...

I gave a link before to the poll where the majority of citizens in Iraq want US troops to withdraw...

And there have been polls haven't there?

I'm pretty sure there have been...

So I am wondering just what kind of democracy it is that the US is into... Because I don't understand.
