Citing the 90% drop in violence in Basra, Prime Minister Gordon Brown has announced that Basra will be handed back within two weeks during a surprise pre-Christmas visit to the troops. Having to arrive like a thief in the night, pitch dark in a RAF C-130, but he damn sure brought some good news. I know Prof. Cole will disagree with the security decrease in Basra, but I know there will be many happy English, Irish and Scottish families this Christmas.
While our troops languish in a hell that our government put them in with no end in sight.
