Britain 'will need more troops' for success in Afghanistan

Michael Evans, Defence Editor, and Francis Elliott

Britain may need to send more troops to Afghanistan despite the success of Operation Panther’s Claw, military chiefs admit.

The scale of the challenge was revealed yesterday as it emerged that British soldiers have faced nearly 1,000 roadside bombs in the past three months. Although 3,000 troops managed to drive out about 500 Taleban during the five-week offensive, they will be fully deployed holding an area in Helmand province about the size of the Isle of Wight, their commanding officer admitted.

Before any more troops are sent out to Afghanistan ,military chiefs and the government should all sit down and make sure that our troops are fully equipped with the vital equipment they need .

If they are injured they should be properly compensated for their injuries.

They have now completed phase one and now the military chiefs and the government should get their act together and sort out their differences and give our troops the vital equipment etc they need .
