From the Times of London:
Britain is risking a new foreign policy rift with the US after bluntly telling the Bush Administration that it is “winning the battles but losing the war” in Afghanistan.Britain also has expressed opposition to the American plan for aerial spraying of opium crop in Afghanistan. Additionally, Britain recently withdrew troops from Basra, Iraq. However, few commentators see this as a trend toward an independent foreign policy on the part of Brown's new Labour government. Perhaps time will tell.
