In the US, a Time/CNN survey found that 55 per cent of Americans believed that their government had been too optimistic about the ease of victory over Saddam Hussein’s regime. On the length of the conflict, only 13 per cent expected it to be over in two-four weeks: 32 per cent thought one-three months was most likely and 46 per cent forecast a war of more than four months. Support fell according to both US and Iraqi casualty numbers. In the event of more than 5,000 Iraqi civilian deaths, 47 per cent would oppose war and only 40 per cent would be in favour. Only 50 per cent would support war and 39 per cent would be opposed if Iraqi civilian casualties climb above 1,000.
