Leave Iraq ( tragedy dad.

Shocking scenes of British soliders being attacked has led a father, who lost his Redcap son to an Iraqi mob, to call for the troops to come home.

John Miller's 21-year-old son, Simon, was one of six military policeman murdered in a police station at Majar Al-Kabir two years ago.

Images of three British soliders suffering burns in Monday's attack while trying to rescue two captured SAS men in Basra brought back painful memories.

Mr Miller, of Usworth, Washington, said it was hard to watch without thinking of Simon or his other son Jon, 26, who is also in the RMP and serving in Afghanistan. He said the Army was right to stage the rescue but the situation is escalating.

Mr Miller said: "Civil war is breaking out in Iraq. If we don't get out now and civil war breaks out, there are going to be a lot of bodybags coming home."

Mr Miller is still fighting for a public inquiry into his son's murder after an MoD inquiry ruled they were ill-equipped and unable to call for help after coming under attack.

He said: "What really gets me more than anything else is they could have got our lads out at any time and they didn't."
