Jeremy Corbyn, a leftwinger touted to head Britain's main opposition Labour party, said Friday he would apologize over the Iraq war if he wins next month's leadership contest.Under the then Labour prime minister Tony Blair, Britain joined the U.S. led by George W. Bush in invading Iraq in 2003 and had troops there until 2011 .Corbyn, who strongly opposed the Iraq war, is expected to sweep to victory when the results of the leadership contest are announced on September 12 .Prime Minister David Cameron's government is considering asking parliament to approve airstrikes on ISIS targets in Syria.But he would need Labour's support to get this through and Corbyn's stance indicates this would not be forthcoming if he became leader.
