'the will is not there to rebuild the entire country from the ground up'

It was allowed to go to shit for five years, then when a popular insurgency springs up we are told that it must be defeated for our own protection.

Dear Paul

We have a mission that has no objectives because the Afghans are not on board.

Legalised rape in marriage?

It is completely rudderless now, those UK Troops fighting have my complete respect and I want them home safe.

It is time to call it quits, the will is not there to rebuild the entire country from the ground up. That is the scale of the task, as Blair said "education, education, education" but in this case it would make a difference.

Thanks George. Today's confession of failure is the turning point. 210 British troops died for a policy that has failed. the public will not stand for more deaths surges, neither here nor in the USA.

George Laird

Dear Paul

The Afghan invasion is a failure, time to get the troops out.

The fact that even the people in power are rigging the elections shows that democracy doesn't work in a country without proper civil government.

Outside the military compounds the Taliban rule.
