Prime Minister Tony Blair said Tuesday British troops must remain in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2007 - in his 10th and likely final, New Year's message as prime minister. Blair gave no indication of when exactly he plans to step down, which he has said he will do by September, in remarks focused mainly on his government's domestic policies over the past decade. "The threat of global terrorism menaces us as it does other nations," Blair said. "That is one reason why it is so important that we see through the battles in Iraq and Afghanistan where the British forces show day after day why they are the finest in the world," he said.
