I thought I would post this to see peoples views on the subject. I read the following article in the Guar which highlights the high casualty rate we have suffered recently in Afghanistan: Linky What caught my eye were the users comments below and to be blunt how incredibly stupid some of them were and despite the fact Afghanistan is in the news on a daily basis these days and our country is involved in a full blown war how little the general public seem to know (or care) about our part out there. One particular comment which highlighted this was the one 9 down I think by an 'emma2001' , this showed that despite the effort by our soldiers and the article highlighting the sacrifice being made by those soldiers it made me wonder whether there is real public support for our troops? or just a concern over how much it costs to keep them there. Hope this sparks a decent discussion.
