Cracking on in Helmand - an analysis of the strategy

Stephen Grey writes in Prospect Magazine:

Britain’s bloody campaign in Afghanistan has been marred by hubris, confusion and a failure to understand our Taliban adversaries. Finally, some lessons have been learned. But it might already be too late
A thoughtful contribution to the expanding debate on our Afghan strategy. Well worth a read.

Outstanding: A blend of well-sourced reporting, and informed opinion. The level of insight here is much deeper than this week's Economist's (pretty good) piece.

I'd say this is the best article I have yet read on the Afghan problem.

In so far as he suggests possible solutions, I would hope that senior figures in Whitehall and Aldershot have this under their noses.
