19-9-2012 What a hell are we doing in Afganistan ?
(Source : US Citizen)
Like many people I never believed in the Afghan mission in the first place. It gives me no pleasure at all to be vindicated by events.
There is a young squaddie from our village who was a casualty of this futile conflict, and that brings home the reality of what is going on.
Why was this young man sent so far to die?
Afghanistan is not our country, their culture is radically different from ours, and they’ve never tried to invade us.
So why are we sending our troops to die there?
