Defence Chiefs Must Be Called To Account

Bergen

ADC
Better late than never I suppose:-

"The failure to foresee, even to contemplate, the disasters provoked by the invasion of Iraq have been well documented, not least in evidence to the Chilcot inquiry. General Jonathan Shaw told Chilcot that Basra was "Palermo rather than Beirut", a comparison dismissed by Ledwidge, as "nothing more than self-delusion". Yet the generals did not heed any of the lessons, and they did not properly prepare their troops, before agreeing to deploy thousands to Helmand in 2006. They failed to do so because they were so desperate to wipe out the memories of southern Iraq, and try and restore their reputation especially among the US military. "
