Former Army Chief Talks Bollocks About ISIS

Former chief of the British Army, General Waddack – Hunt (OK, Lord Richards really) has supported a call from the Defence for Turkey to become involved in defeating ISIS in Syria and Iraq, but has gone even further by insisting the war could be over in six months if Britain and America deployed troops.

Lord Richards’s comments were made during an interview with Huffington Post, when he expressed concern that current Western strategy of air strikes and arming local resistance groups may not be enough to stop ISIS, or even to save the Kurds who are in danger of being overrun by the Islamic State.

Lord Richards said: “The idea that you can make [the Free Syrian Army or the Peshmerga] successful in the time we have available to us… without much more active and fulsome western involvement is, I think, naive”.

Indeed, were Western democracies to take a less distant approach to the problem, Richards believes “if Western boots were on the ground, if western armies were to be applied to the problem [of Islamic State], it could be over in six months”.
