As you know, I believe our continued presence in Afghanistan is now utterly pointless. The original mission aims have been frittered away by politicians afraid to do what is necessary (the utter destruction of the Taliban) and so we hang around and our military are reduced to becoming glorified target practise for the savages in that land;
“Three British soldiers have died after a man wearing an Afghan police uniform shot them at a checkpoint in Helmand Province, the Ministry of Defence said. The soldiers, two of whom were serving with the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards and the other who was serving with the Royal Corps of Signals, received first aid at the scene after yesterday’s attack but died of their injuries. They had been working in an Afghan Police Advisory Team. Their next-of-kin have been informed.”
This news is reported in an almost blase way, just one of those things. But hang on a second. If this was the OTHER way around and a British soldier has run rampant and killed some Afghans, the corruptocrat Karzai would be rushing to the media DEMANDING an apology from the British Government. So, in this instance, when OUR soldiers have been so brutally murdered by someone in Afghan police uniform, where is Cameron’s demand for an apology from Karzai? After all, isn’t HE ultimately responsible for the Afghan Police? If this organisation is being infiltrated by Taliban killers (which is plainly the case) then the responsibility to DO something about it lies with Karzai. But he will do nothing.
We should remove our military forthwith from Afghanistan; it is not worth ONE British (or American) life. If you want to fight a war have clear aims. We have no real aims, just a sham of an operation that costs our men and women in uniform a horrendously high price. When the question is asked; What did these men die for? The answer is unclear. Did they die so that our Government can bring the Taliban into the Afghan Government? Did they die so that the corrupt Karzai can posture as some sort of leader?
