Will the British public come around?

This piece from National Review Online suggests, based on polling data, that the Britons are not as intractably opposed to military action against Iraq as we have been led to believe. Apparently, the polls show that a majority would favor such military action if it garners majority support in the Security Council, even if several members exercise a veto. Of course, it’s far from clear now that even a majority of Security Council members will support attacking Saddam. But if the British people are okay with attacking Saddam under that condition prior to any attack, they may well be okay with doing so absent that condition after a successful attack. What people will think after the attack is, of course, far more important than what people think now. In fact, what people think now will be altogether irrelevant in a few months.
