Insurgents in Iraq are right to try to force US troops out of the country, a former British army commander has said.
Gen Sir Michael Rose also told the BBC’s Newsnight programme that the US and the UK must “admit defeat” and stop fighting “a hopeless war” in Iraq.
He told Newsnight: “As Lord Chatham said, when he was speaking on the British presence in North America, he said ‘if I was an American, as I am an Englishman, as long as one Englishman remained on American native soil, I would never, never, never lay down my arms’.
“The Iraqi insurgents feel exactly the same way.”
He said it was time to bring troops home.

I’m currently watching the election results. New Labour’s Tebbit, John Reid, is laying out his usual doses of braying and bullying and no-one is mentioning the war.
It’s all frightfully, terribly polite!
They’re talking about the possible exit of Tony Blair next week as if it’s just another Prime Minister retiring.
But this is Butcher Blair. The British leader responsible for taking us into a phoney war, the PM who lied to Parliament and manufactured evidence in his quest for power and oil.
He is, simply, a war criminal.
Michael Rose knows and understands this far better than Reid and all the other New Labour criminals. He’s already called for Blair’s impeachment.
And now, he’s saying what most of the world already thinks: the people labelled as “insurgents” by the US could equally be viewed as resistance fighters, trying to oust a vicious, illegal occupation of murderers and torturers.
You won’t hear any of this on the election news tonight… its all the froth and frippery, the biggest issue of the last four years isn’t even getting a mention.
EDIT – I’ve just watched another New Labour cunt declaring Blair “an excellent Prime Minister.” So, taking part in the killing of 655,000+ Iraqis is commendable leadership, is it? Just how many kids does a Labour politician have to murder before they break ranks?
I’ve got to switch over now, I’m too fucking angry.
