Iraqis, Afghans, optimistic about Future....France not so much
In a new poll conducted by BBC, Iraqis and afghans are among the most optimistic about the future in the world.
Joining the Afghans and Iraqis in the optimistic category are Canadians who are bullish not only about their own finances (64 percent), but also about their country (63 percent).I guess the ability to vote and the new freedoms that America made possible in Iraq and Afganistan has given those people hope for the future. Interestingly, according to the poll, France and Italy are some of the most pessimistic countries. Perhaps socialism doesn't make people feel all that optimistic. I am sure the MSM will bury these results in the coming days. For them, any news is good news...but good news doesn't exist.
In Afghanistan, 70 percent of respondents said their own circumstances are improving, and 57 percent said the country overall is on the way up. In Iraq, 65 percent believe their personal life is getting better, and 56 percent are upbeat about the country's economy, the BBC reported
