Re: Iraq and Peace in the World
We posted an editorial, sent by John Heelan, on a poll of of European opinion, which was generally unfavorable to the US. The editorial claimed that the poll had an error range of 1.2 %. Tom Brown is incredulous:
"The recording and administrative errors alone, even in the most professional of polls taken within tightly controlled parameters, still have margins of error wider that 1.2%. And that's without taking into account language differences, unregistered persons and other immutably imprecise variables.
+/- 1.2% accuracy? I don't think that's possible outside the totally controlled atmosphere of a scientific laboratory, much less in a massive and messy group of countries spanning an entire continent".
