"Get outta there" watch: Brit Army chief wants out of Iraq
The head of the Army is calling for British troops to withdraw from Iraq "soon" or risk catastophic consequences for both Iraq and British society.Who is left in the stay-the-course crowd besides Bush, his dog, Blair, and Lieberman? OK, too many people. But the rats are jumping from the sinking ship. If only this had happened sooner. As in before the war.
In a devastating broadside at Tony Blair's foreign policy, General Sir Richard Dannatt stated explicitly that the continuing presence of British troops "exacerbates the security problems" in Iraq.
