Shocking that @stacker1 still thinks that Afghans ever thought of Afghanistan as a country, rather than a collection of tribal fiefdoms.I mean it never has been the Army primary role to deal with terrorists and run a country.
You better tell the army then, as the army as been used in that capacity many times, well
the "to deal with terrorists" bit anyway
and many more,
Shockingly enough, after nearly 2 decades, it was the people of Afghanistan who should have been dealing with the Taliban, not foreign militaries.
I agree with you there.
Shocking that @stacker1 thinks that the army chooses the conflicts to fight and has endless foresight and storage space for weapons, vehicles that are theatre specific, and body armour.
Someone tell the turnip that politicians choose the fights, the peacetime budget and the selling off of surplus....
... best buy him another box of tissues and a bog roll while you are at it as contrived tears and verbal crap will soon follow.
