The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  1. Des Brown has told a committee of MP's that British forces will remain in Afghanistan beyond 2009. He caveated it by mentioning that the commitment beyond 2009 was for "planning purposes only". So, nothing that most of us hadn't already surmised or expected.

  2. We are so lucky that he has shared that Pearl of wisdom with us!!
    What a clown
  3. To be fair, he's probably still under the impression, from his hand over/takeover, that we can be in and out without a shot being fired...
  4. By the rate camp B is expanding we will be in there untill 3009
