Strong opinions, weakly held

A disturbing prediction for the British army

Will the British army be responsible for covering the inevitable eventual withdrawal of US troops? One retired British officer thinks so:

“We’ll be the last men out”, he said. “We hold the country that the Americans will have to pull out through; and it will be our job to cover their retreat.”

As convinced I am that it’s time for the US (and British) occupation of Iraq to end, the actual mechanics of a withdrawal are awful to contemplate.

  1. Don’t worry; the withdrawal plans are in the appendix of the “Overthrow, Occupation and Pacification of Saddam’s Iraq” (OOPSI) — the prewar master planning document.
