Oz stats:
Less than a third of Australians believe our troops should be "staying the course" in Iraq, a new poll shows.

The Newspoll, published in The Australian, shows 31 per cent of respondents to the survey were committed to "staying the course" in Iraq, down by almost half, from 45 per cent, in December 2004.

A record low of 22 per cent agreed it was "worth going to war", down 10 percentage points from December 2004.

The figure for those who agreed it was "not worth going" to war climbed to 68 per cent, up from 58 per cent in December 2004.
