Poll: Almost 60% Of Iranians Would Welcome Foreign Military Action Against Ahmadinejad

I don't know much about the organization Center For the Promotion of Democracy and Human Rights, but they've just released a fascinating poll taken of the Iranian population. Some excerpts:

A new survey reveals that 92 percent of the subjects of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's totalitarian government do not believe their nation's role is positive, and two-thirds would support a "Velvet Revolution" to remove him from power.

That's interesting enough. Now check this out:

The survey...found that almost six out of 10 Iranians would support a foreign military action for the purpose of taking Ahmadinejad out of the role as dictator.

I don't remember: did we have such a poll before we invaded Iraq?

There's a lot more there. Definitely worth a read, but like all polls, should be taken with a huge grain of salt.
