Bringing our troops home from Iraq?

This is my first post on this blog and I have decided to write about something that I feel will cause a lot of debate. General Sir Richard Dannatt has suggested that Britain should withdraw our troops from Iraq soon. This is a controversial statement but the opposite is equally controversial. I believe that we should not withdraw our troops until the situation has been sorted – but how long will this take? Dannatt has made some valid points. Many people do want to see our troops returned home.

I am interested in the debate that I hope this post will bring up. There are definitely pro’s and con’s to both arguments. I believe that it is our duty to “clear the mess that we have made by invading Iraq” but, of course, I would like to see our troops back home as soon as possible.

Sorry if I have taken the General’s comments out of context in any way. That is just how I understood the story.
