Try to estimate number of enemies of the UK in Afganistan taking into account that population of the country is near to 32,000,000.

What's the point of this poll?
Is this a poor attempt to stir an ambiguous argument, in which the Brits are left looking like part of an aggressive expansionist movement?
If so stroll on.

Well know British politician (too well known to name him) suggested that the UK hasn't enemies in Afghanistan. Apparently many disagree with this statement. So what would be realistic estimate of number of enemies of the UK in the country?

I suppose there are many Afghans who don't want us in their country, but only a few who are willing to fight and if necessarily die for their belief. Around 10,000 i'd say considering we've slotted many of the Afghani taliban.

We're fighting more Pakis than Afghanis now which is fine by me as i have even less time for them.

Some eejit of a politician suggests that the Brits don't have enemies in Afghanistan?
British (and indeed all) politicians are well renowned for fully researching the facts of any matter before opening their blow holes.
Clearly this person has their finger on the pulse...and not jammed up their arrse.

Obviously there are no enemies of the British there. The whole thing is just a very large live-fire exercise!
The people playing opfor are just the 'shadow' regiments, drawn from when the restructuring took place, and are in fact members of those regiments that were supposedly amalgamated.
Perhaps Sven should watch the news or read a newspaper.

The day I hear of dog fights with the Afghan Luftwaffe over the fields of Kent, or an Afghan Armada being sighted off the coast of Plymouth Sound will be the day I begin, with great sadness and disappointment, to view Afghans as an enemy of Britain.

that's a daft poll and a feeble attempt to validate the notion that Afghans are the enemy. We're not fighting the Afghans, we're fighting the Taliban within the Afghan borders.

The Taliban careers office isn't interested in nationality, just the abilty to get off your face, run, shoot and get converted into meat.

Why not look at it this way.
You are an ordinary citizen living in Britain. You begin to start from suffering from anxiety and depression because you believe the Afghans are out to attack us.
You visit the doctor and he tries to reassure you. But you keep reading in the papers and believing what you are told, that the Afghans are actually a real and substantial threat to you, your family and Britain.
The complete absence of terrorism or indeed Afghans in your neighborhood only increases your terror causing you to think that they must be up to something. Your anxiety and depression increase.
How many visits to the doctor do you reckon it would take before he had you sectioned?

Cracks really crap when it starts to wear off isn't it? :D

Co incidentally, I have heard recently of American government officials beginning to complain about the growing and unwieldy Terrorist Watch List database that they are having to deal with. It seems every Joe and his uncle who ever looked oddly at the person at the check in counter is being added.

Would that be Galloway on Question Time last night then? LOL.

Depends on how many of them decide to put rounds in my direction I suppose.

What a load of fcuking rubbish shattered light, I know. lets wait (in the age of modern weaponry) until we're already being attacked at home before doing anything about a threat! Why not wait until half the UK has already had the sh1te blown out of it before doing anything? I know, even better, lets let Afghanistan collapse back to pre-2001 styles and let AQ get a foothold again, that worked out so well in the '90s didn't it? Cnut...

Any Afghan that wants to pick up an AK and point it in the general direction of the UK or indeed any of our soldiers is a Talib cnut.

Why are we there?

A) To find Bin Lid
B) To disrupt taliban terrorist training
C) To disrupt the Heroin/Opium trade [90% of UK heroin comes from Afghanistan, and it funds terrorist activities to boot].

Contray to the weight of public opinion, the majority of Afghans want rid of the Talib Militias. If they are gonna go round playing with the likes of Bin Lid and his boys, they will get whats coming to them.
