Graeme Lamb - History Will Not Regret the Iraq War
In this video, former Director of UK Special Forces and Commander of the British Field Army, Graeme Lamb, argues that history will not regret the Iraq War in a special Oxford Union debate. He believes that choice, that simple freedom, is something that the Iraqi people did not have under the leadership it was being led by.
A three-star general, he is the former Director of the United Kingdom’s Special Forces (UKSF) the UK, albeit smaller equivalent of the US Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). His operational experience is truly global having been deployed, or in direct support of those deployments, to virtually all the UK’s major conflicts since 1973. His close working relationship with the US has broadened that experience, GEN Stan McChrystal’s assessment, “I knew of no one else who possessed both the agile, pragmatic mind, and the unmistakable presence but if anyone were to make it work, Graeme was the one of a handful in either American or British militaries that could.”
