Well worth a read. I've been following Yon on his website - good stories/pics etc. He had a bit of a spat with MOD recently ref his embedding with British Troops in Helmand and Bob Ainsworth had to answer questions over it in Parliament. If the article in the Washington Times is the view of most Americans, at least we know they respect our military, if not the Government. This is the first uneqivocal article I have seen which expresses the opinion that we are (the Brits) that is likely to lose in AFG if the Govt does not commit properly. I agree with pretty much everything he says. Story here: Thoughts anyone ?
