    Former foreign secretaries say Britain should leave Iraq in a year

    According to this report at the BBC, two former foreign secreatries, Robin Cook, and Douglas Hurd have wrote to the Times stating that a prolonged occupation of Iraq would cause increasing levels of violence in the country, and that foreign troops should be withdrawn by January 2006. The Lib Dems' foreign affairs spokesman also put his name to the letter.

    Mr Cook and Lord Hurd, writing with Liberal Democrats foreign affairs spokesman Sir Menzies Campbell, said Britain and the US cannot ignore the "mess" they have created in Iraq. But nor can they solve tensions between different groups within the country, they said.
