Bloody twits ...

Of course he went public when he had a book to sell, but the Brit says what a lot of us knew before the shit hit the fan.

General Sir Mike Jackson, the head of the British Army during the invasion of Iraq, has launched a scathing attack on the United States for the way it handled the post-war administration of the country.

The former chief of the general staff said the approach taken by Donald Rumsfeld, the then US defence secretary, was "intellectually bankrupt", describing his claim that US forces "don't do nation-building" as "nonsensical".


Just an aside. Were I a general officer and a knight commander, I think I'd break down and use the formal 'Michael'.


His attack - the first time he has revealed the depth of his anger towards the US administration - highlights the deep-seated tension between the British command and the Pentagon during the build-up to and the aftermath of the Iraq campaign in 2003.


General Sir Mike, in the end, feels the invasion was legal but, being a Brit officer, if he didn't convince himself of it he'd already have swallowed the barrel of his pistol.

The invasion of Iraq was a war crime and everything that strems from it are additional counts.
