Blair Sends British Troops to War in Iraq

British Prime Minister Tony Blair has authorised the British troops to join US military operations in Iraq, spokesman for the British Prime Minister told RIA Novosti on Thursday.

According to him, Blair made the move at night on receiving the news about the first US strikes on Iraq.

So, the British armed forces command may now order the troops to attack targets in Iraq and launch ground operations.

The British Prime Minister does not plan to address the nation in view of the war on Iraq, the Downing Street reported. Defence Secretary Geoffrey Hoon will do it this time.
