Criticism of US policy in Iraq from retired British generals strengthens the case for a full-scale inquiry into the war and its aftermath, according to shadow foreign secretary William Hague. "Very crucial mistakes have been made. Understanding those and making sure they are not repeated in the future is one of the reasons we have to have that inquiry", says Hague, a strong supporter of the military intervention of four and half years ago.
There is a simple, sure-fire way to make sure that the 'very crucial mistakes' Hague refers to are not repeated. Don't embroil our country in any more illegal wars of aggression against sovereign states.
I wonder if Mr Hague and his fellow neo-cons in the upper echelons of the Conservative Party are prepared to adopt that position as their foreign policy?
