UK Electorate Wants British Troop Numbers in Afghanistan to be Reduced to the NATO Average

With the withdrawal of the 1,950 Dutch troops in Afghanistan following the collapse of the Dutch government, the Jury Team today again called on the UK government to bring the number of British troops in Afghanistan into line with the NATO average. This Jury Team policy on Afghanistan was shown in a YouGov poll to be supported by 67% of the electorate to 14% against. The UK currently has more troops in Afghanistan, compared with population, than any NATO country including America and has had 12 times more deaths than its European NATO allies.


Book Reviewer
Some interesting number crunching going on there re size of deployed forces relative to national populations, but let us be honest: This has nothing to do with military strategy, and everything to do with a cynical PR play by the "Jury Team." (Who they?) Glad to hear that females and pensioners are getting to have their say in our defense policy, though. (Yawn.)

Is there an election forthcoming, perchance?

Coming soon:
Research indicates that the UK population is getting less sex, per capita, than fellow Europeans. Acting on behalf of the electorate, the "Jury Team"demands the government issue a ration of Viagra to all British males aged between 16 and 52 after church on Sundays.
Etc, etc, etc.

If anything it would be safer if numbers went up.
Safer for whom?
The more you use, the fewer you lose.
We should deploy as many troops as it takes to do the job succesfully. Or lose interest and bring them all home. Anything between the two is entirely devoid of logic.
