Muslim revenge warning to West
A BRITISH woman who worked at the top of the US military during the most troubled periods of the Iraq war has said she fears the West has yet to see how some Muslims brought up in the past decade will seek revenge for the ''war on terror''.
Emma Sky, 44, was political adviser to the United States' most senior general in Iraq, Ray Odierno, and part of the team that implemented the counter-insurgency strategy that helped to control the civil war that erupted in the country.
She spent more than four years in Iraq, including a spell as civilian governor of Kirkuk, an oil-rich city in the north that continues to cause tension between the country's ethnic groups.
Ms Sky argues that politicians and government officials in Britain and the US should have been held responsible for the decision to go to war and the lack of strategy and planning for its aftermath, the consequences of which are still being felt.
