BBC NEWS | Politics | Blair puts 'moral' case for war

Three out of every five Britons think the UK and US Governments have failed to prove their case that Iraqi president Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction, the research indicates.

When the survey asked why Britain and America wanted to attack Iraq, the most popular response was: "To secure oil supplies."

Fewer than one out of every four said it was to eliminate weapons of mass destruction.

And just one out of every five thought it was to prevent another act of international terrorism "like 11 September".
