    Been a member of the forums for a while now but have just browsed through laughing at some of the comments rather than posting. I’m in my second year at 6th form and involved in a constituency debate competition (organised by Ian Duncan Smith MP). My team is through to the final and we’ve been given the task of arguing for British withdrawal from Afghanistan. Basically I wondered if any of you would be help me out with some opinions both for and against Afghanistan involvement.

    Cheers

We are today not far from disaster.
