TWO MORE HEROES DIE IN VAIN AS CAMERON DITHERS
SPEAKS FOR BRITAIN
TWO more British lives lost.
Sixteen Afghan soldiers arrested with suicide jackets.
Our so-called allies in the Afghan National Army aren’t stabbing our troops in the back – they’re shooting them from the front – and our taxes are paying for it.
It’s time Prime Minister David Cameron had the guts to stop dithering and bring all our forces home. NOW! Anyone who thinks this dire situation won’t deteriorate further needs their head examining.
The stark truth is that we are now in the insane position of British taxpayers paying to arm and train men who then kill our own soldiers.
When, exactly, did anyone sign up to that?
America went into Afghanistan 11 years ago hunting for Osama Bin Laden to avenge 9/11.
Quite rightly, we went in with them.
Bin Laden was eventually found and killed 10 years later – not in a cave in Afghanistan, but across the border in a big house in a Pakistan suburb, where he’d obviously had help to hide. The Taliban, who’d originally harboured Bin Laden, are also widely presumed to be holed up in Pakistan waiting for NATO troops to get out of Afghanistan.
So why not just let them have their dusty caves, their heroin crops and their horrible reality back?
What IS the point of our men and women dying out there?
We’ve spent 11 blood-soaked years, countless billions and – more important than ANYTHING – the lives of 407 British soldiers, trying to win the “hearts and minds” of the Afghan nation.
We have failed. But it’s not a failure of the lionhearts of the British armed forces.
It is a failure of politicians too thick to understand what they were dealing with. Afghanistan is not so much a nation as a rag-tag collective run by drug dealers and warlords.
Whether we like it or not, that is what it will always will be.
Short of bombing the entire place to smithereens, there is nothing anyone can do improve their lot.
So it’s more than past the time for our troops to come home.
Not a single more British life should be lost just because we haven’t got the balls to admit that Afghanistan was, is and ALWAYS will be, a completely lost cause.
Afghanistan is not our problem to fix.
This mission has no merit, which is why it must end NOW.
Our Boys face danger from Taliban AND Afghan
