In regards to the 'debate' over the use of UK troops in Baghdad they are making much of how the Brits are used to policing relatively peaceful zones and not being 'at the sharp end'.
Utter twoddle. Our troops are taking a shed-load of incoming - they are just more experienced at this sort of war/police action and so dont respond in knee-jerk, US, gung-ho style - and so they manage to keep a better grip on the situation.
The one good thing to come of this would be the Brits to go into an area of B'dad and slowly sort it, calm it down and show the septics how to conduct 'hearts & minds', police, peace-keeping type actions.
