The Britsare not down with the war.
Nearly six in 10 people in Britain believe it was a mistake to invade Iraq, according to a BBC poll published Tuesday.
Fifty-five percent of respondents said they felt the war in Iraq has made Britain less safe, and only 5 percent said it left them feeling safer, according to the British Broadcasting Corp. poll commissioned to mark the invasion’s fourth anniversary.
“Four years on from the war, most people in the country have now come to the view that the United States and Britain were wrong to take military action against Iraq in 2003,” said Nick Sparrow from ICM Research, which conducted the poll.
More than half of respondents, 51 percent, said they would not trust the British government if it said military action was needed elsewhere because a country posed a threat to national security. Thirty-two percent said they would trust the government.
