Most Americans say the U.S. should bomb Iraq if it continues to block
U.S. citizens from taking part in U.N. arms inspections, and 8 in 10
or 84% favor retaliation if Baghdad tries to shoot down U.S. spy
planes, an ABC poll said Wednesday. The poll, released on
"Nightline," said 54% believed the U.S. was headed for another
confrontation with Iraq. 44% said they did not believe the
confrontation would end in war. 54% of the 751 adults polled said
Washington should bomb Iraq if it continues to ban U.S. weapons
inspectors from searching for arms of mass destruction under terms of
a Gulf War cease-fire resolution. For story
