The head of the British army tonight called for troops to be withdrawn from Iraq "soon".
General Sir Richard Dannatt told the Daily Mail that Britain's presence in the country was "exacerbating" security problems.
"I don't say that the difficulties we are experiencing round the world are caused by our presence in Iraq but undoubtedly our presence in Iraq exacerbates them," he said.
Gen Dannatt, who became chief of the general staff in August, said we should "get ourselves out sometime soon because our presence exacerbates the security problems".

Don't go wobbly on us!
If he said this he should be fired. Generals are supposed to take orders not set policy.
They have so many Muzzies in Britain I suspect that's the security problem to which the good General is referring - concerned about IMO. I'm interested in what PM Blair will have to say.
I guess the Brits are capitulating to our Mutual Enemy,am I the only one left who has no doubt whatsoever that we are doing the RIGHT Thing fighting this Enemy NOW!Why are they fighting so hard if it doesn`t mean anyting?
And they wanted us to put one of their generals in command of our Army in Afghanistan and Iraq. Yeah...right.
General Twit has it wrong; it is our existence that exacerbates the security problem...The ROP will not tolerate infidels.
He wants to take the war home. Either they'll need a police state to hold their multicult society together or they'll start some serious deporting.
Now to see how we do it, go here:

Maggie must be horrified.
British troop withdrawal, if necessary, could be portrayed as defending against the radical muzzies at home, and carrying the WOT onto another battlefield. That's the way I read his remarks. GB is hip deep in ROP, and they could inflict serious damage in a major uprising.
Not that they would ever dream of violent uprising....
Indeed. Great handle by the way!
