Was the United States justified in
invading Iraq? Was it worth the price?

ENG#=1 VO-NAT

JEAN ON VO JEAN ON VO *CG locator Iraq
March 2003 It's a question many are asking as the
third anniversary of the United States'
invasion comes up this Sunday.

Since the early military success,
insurgent violence has increased, and
the loss of U-S lives has continued.

But we've also seen the fall of
dictator, Sadaam Hussein and Iraq's
first free election.

One thing is for sure, this is a
controversial topic that's caused a

split between parties and has drawn a
line down the middle of America.

So again, the question: has it been
worth it?

continues to be asked and we've seen
the national polls but we were curious
to see what you in our region, think?

ENG#=2 SOT FULL

INQ= << Survey USA pollsters talked to 500


people in our region.

The number of people that believe
invading Iraq was the right thing to do
outweighs those who don't by about
seven percent.

But what's interesting is even

though 53 percent think we should have
gone to war, 56 percent say it wasn't
worth it.

And 40 percent believe we should
pull all of the troops out of Iraq
right now. While 21 percent think we
should just decrease the number of
troops and 18 percent say stay the same
or increase the number.>>

RUNS=:31 (END SOT)



OQ=or increase the number.





LIVE=Natasha Full/BAM NATASHA ON CAM



Now, CBS did a poll across the
country earlier this week and numbers
are quite different from what we see in
VA....The majority of those polled
nationally, 54 percent of Americans
believe going to war was the wrong
thing to do....

DOUBLE BOXES=Jean & Natasha/BAM DOUBLE BOXES



Now Jean, where most agree is that the
war wasn't worth it. As we said 56
percent feel that way here in VA, that
number jumps to 70 percent nationwide.

That's one reason the government wants
