Iraq incursion a complete waste

THE long war in Iraq has been a waste of time. More importantly, it has been a colossal waste of money. Critically, it has been an enormous waste of life.

I feel for all those families who have lost young men and women – and for what? To say that we have kept terrorism at bay and made our country safe is obviously unsupportable.

We should put our energies into making our own backyard safe and forget trying to save the rest of the world, which doesn't appear to want to be saved.
