Head of the British Army : "let's cut and run"
U.K. troops in Iraq said hurt situation 27 minutes ago

LONDON - The head of the British Army said British troops in Iraq are making the situation worse and must leave the country soon, according to a newspaper interview published Thursday.

The British military should "get ourselves out sometime soon because our presence exacerbates the security problems," Gen. Sir Richard Dannatt told the Daily Mail in the interview released on the tabloid's Web site.

"We are in a Muslim country and Muslims' views of foreigners in their country are quite clear," he added. "As a foreigner, you can be welcomed by being invited in a country, but we weren't invited certainly by those in Iraq at the time."
.................

"Whatever consent we may have had in the first place" from the Iraqi people "has largely turned to intolerance," he said.
