Better Protection Needed

A good editorial yesterday from The Telegraph, headed, "Don't abandon Iraq", this blog could hardly disagree with the sentiment. However, what the leader doesn't do is then draw the obvious conclusions.
Clearly we are running away because we have to – we do not have the equipment to defend ourselves, and we need the troops and what little kit there is to stave off defeat in Afghanistan.
The point, of course, is that if British troops are to remain in Basra (and for the foreseeable future they must), they need much more equipment and much better protection.
