Britain's Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg says Iraq Invasion was Illegal
Britain's Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg described the 2003 invasion of Iraq as illegal on Wednesday, putting the new coalition government under pressure to clarity its position on the war.
The Liberal Democrat leader was speaking in parliament while deputizing for Prime Minister David Cameron who was on a visit to the United States.
Cameron, like most of his Conservative Party -- the senior coalition partners -- supported Britain's involvement in the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq under the previous Labour government.
There is nothing controversial about that. Unless you have suported the illegal war of aggression?
As a side note: "Britain has withdrawn its troops from Iraq but has 9,500 soldiers in Afghanistan"
