British troops should leave Iraq now
The Iraqi Prime Minister Al-Maliki told the British News paper the Times; that there is no need for the British troops to stay in Basrah any more. He stated that the Iraqi government decided that there is no need for the British troops to stay and they should leave immediate.
Al-Maliki told that the British troops failed to provide security in Basrah and last year they left the city to fail in the hands of gangs that killed women and children with their swords and guns. Then the Iraqi forces came in and take control and arrested or killed all those who disturbed the city. In fact the failure of the British troops was also seen clearly in the city of Omara.
The Iraqis including the people in Basrah would like to see these occupying troops leaving their cities as soon as possible now.
