they seem to be thhinking "we are spending lots of money there, people getting hurt/killed...what is or aim/target!?" put it this way government, if we pulled out, the people already killed there fought for nothing, the money/time/effort spent training ANA/ANP was for nothing, taking ground and trying to stop the Opium trades was for nothing. The british army need to complete their task, stabalise the country; supporting ANA/ANP to take country and get some kind of leadership, rebuild a sense of community and keep the Taliban from their extreme views and actions. Not to mention the reprecussions! "we'l call it evens" i think not, you not think Taliban think they have won, and perhaps even increase terrorism? if anything theyd have more motive then before, which has consequences, big ones. I dont know about you guys but id much rather do the job over there, a job I know we can do as we trained very well and get it done then be at home in england not in control of our fate, waiting for terry Taliban to acclaim revenge or whatever it they want haha.
