Frustrations, setbacks, fatigue and successes - mentoring the Afghan Army

Ministry of Defence said:
Before leaving Afghanistan last week the head of a British team mentoring and partnering an Afghan Army battalion wrote about the frustrations, successes, setbacks and fatigue of developing the Afghans into an independent and self-sufficient infantry unit.

Teaching the Afghans to be a proper country is like trying to teach a pig to whistle. It wastes your time and annoys the pig.

I take it after the experience of teaching Afghans how to fight Britain will move on to the challenge of trying to teach Brazilian teenagers how to play football?
