Another Afghan Fiasco

The government of the NATO allies are talking about an exit strategy to hand over power and security to the corrupt and dydfunctional Afghan government and abandon the diastrous war in Afghanistan.

’bout time too. Does anybody seriously think though that following a British and American withdrawal the Taliban will not be back in power within three months. And does andbody really think if Obama sends massive reinforcements the Taliban will not just melt away into the hills and villages and bide their time.

  1. I was puzzled by Gordon Brown and David Miliband talking about next year’s exit strategy. They seem to be laying themselves open to looking foolish, particularly once President Obama makes up his mind about his strategy – which presumably will be quite soon.

    Increasingly, Afghans seem to be becoming a side issue in their own war with Pakistan taking the spotlight. The US and the UK will just sit tight in Afghanistan doing everything they can to stop the Pakistani government succumbing to militant islamists – short of sending NATO troops over the frontier (except perhaps covertly).

  2. This whole thing is becoming more ridiculous by the day. I was lucky to escape unscathed from a daft colonial war in 1958 in Cyprus. We lost 105 men but nobody in UK noticed and some of my contemporaries still bear the scars.
    Time to come home lads. You’ve done well and I support you.

    1. It’s a sad reflection on how morally bankrupt modern politicians are when they can build the case for continuing this war in support of the American Imperial ambition by saying “to quit now will be a betrayal of those who have died.”

      Have these people never read Wilfred Owen’s Dulce Et Decorum Est?
