Letter: Iraq's Blitz spirit

Sir: The hope that the bombing of Iraq will provoke the Iraqis to rise against their leader seems to me to be ludicrous.

My experience of being bombed during the Second World War ( I was stationed in London during the Blitz and the attacks by V1 and V2 missiles) did not make me want to throw out Winston Churchill - quite the opposite. But it did give me a profound and increasing dislike of the perpetrators of the bombings, namely the Nazis.

Why should the Iraqis be different?
