Army chief declares war on Blair: 'We must quit Iraq soon'
The views of General Sir Richard Dannatt will send shockwaves through Tony Blair's government. 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. 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."I am going to stand up for what is right for the army. Honesty is what it is about. The truth will out. We have got to speak the truth."
