Three members of the British Black Watch Battle Group, who had shifted to the Baghdad area to fill in gaps left by U.S. soldiers intent on attacking Fallujah, have been killed by enemy fire.
The British people as well as many members Blair’s Labor Party opposed shifting the Black Watch from Basra, where they had worked hard to win the hearts and minds of the locals, to Baghdad where American tactics have inflamed same locals. Officers and enlisted men of the Black Watch spoke out against the move as well.
How long will Tony Blair be willing to continue his country’s participation in Chimpy’s Big Adventure? I’m thinking not very.
