War On Reality Part 35 ; UK Basra Exit 'Not A Defeat', What The F*@k Is It Then?

Yesterday's British withdrawal of troops from Basra Palace to a base at the airport has been defended as "not a defeat" by most of the UK government and anyone who's been asked from the Ministry Of Defence.

But for many, the very action of removing these troops shows that the pull-out of the vast majority of UK forces is in "all but word" a defeat.

A former Foreign Office offical said there has been no coalition control over Southern Iraq for two and a half years.

Tell The Truthiness ; Mr Bush, are your shoulders slightly colder now that Prime Minister Gordon Brown is standing some distance away?
