How jolly, the pm today tells the troops they might be withdraw starting next year. Why? we all ready know they are over stretched, and underfunded/badly resourced so surely keeping troops there as an operational reserve is a better option or use the surplus to up man the fobs so they actually work! instead of being big pillboxes under siege untill the marines take over. The sub donkeys reckon we could well be there for decades so why not do it properly and plan for it, we can win a war with just advisors and no tactical stick. are they that desperate to bring the boys home so they can hand them their p45's and save a few quid?
