The guy is an idiot of the first order. It shows what a bunch of second raters this lot are that they think that one of the three great offices of state are worthy in this losers hands. I would prefer a telly tubby over the current incumbent. How far we've sunk....

My feelings on Milliband and his abilities are easy to find with a search.

What an utter, total, immature, out of his depth tube this man is.

Dear Mr. Milliband, please, please please STFU and go and talk to people that know what the hell they're talking about.

I am terrified they'll move Hutton from Defence to FCO to give us some credibility again.

I'll add my post to the ARRSE consensus.

Deluded fool.

He showed what a cretin he was over Georgia. It's been downhill since. FFS stick Straw back in the slot.

Yesterday on R4 Today programme, I am sure I heard him describe the Taliban as a counter-insurgency force. John Humphreys couldn't even be bothered to correct him he was spouting so much other twaddle.

Inference did seem to be that the Afghan army and police were being built up rapidly. Stand by for an announcement that we will soon send more troops as a mentoring force.

It's no wonder that that sniffer dog bit him on his last trip out to Afghanistan - they're trained to detect a wrong 'un :)

I forgot about that, what happened in the end to the poor little mite? Did his handler give him lots of treats?

Re Taliban....... Counter Insurgency?

Are we the Insurgents?

From a certain perspective I suppose we are, does this mean one of our MPs have gone Native?

No, it means he's an idiot, who remembers words but does not understand them, and who is quite unaware of his own limitations.

So far as I can tell, though, there is one. We can't beat them conclusively in any military sense and they get a severe spanking every time the try to take us on, yet neither side is about to give up any time soon. What's missing from this is any sensible plan to change the situation - almost certainly because he doesn't have one.

For the Foreign Secretary to say this in public shows an unbelievable lack of judgement IMO. The fact that he's making Jack Straw look good is as damning a criticism of him as I can think of.

I never thought I would say this, but until we get rid of this ship of fools at the next General Election - bring back Margaret Beckett! (has it got that bad?).

What actually learned mr.Milliband has said?

In parts of the country there is a strategic stalemate. It is not true that the Taliban are overrunning our forces because in any conventional encounter they lose.
It means that both Taliban and NATO/US forces are unable to win, unable to establish strategic control over some parts of Afghanistan.

Frankly speaking I'm not a bif fan of the talented representative of British polical elite but in this case I rather agree with mr.Milliband.

Its one thing thinking it but its another to blab it

To be at a strategic stalemate you also have to have a strategy, does anyone know what ours is
