    Apparently we're having accidents while training the locals to get better at killing us.
    What I do get is how our soldiers are doing (What I think is) an impossible job in difficult conditions.
    What I don't get is that the only news we ever get is when another soldier is lost.
    Top brass and pollies keep on spouting about either "We are making progress" or "How important it is we are there", or even that "**** happens".
    In the US and UK for some years now they have had silence at the end of the evening news as the pictures and names of the fallen are shown.
    Afghanistan has become a trap for our soldiers. It always has been that way and it always will.
    Is it any wonder more and more people just want our boys brought home.
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?

    My thoughts exactly. Read the history of the place, it has swallowed foreign armies one after another for centuries, the British and the Russians notably.....time to come home and let them get back to killing each other as they have always done between wars/invasions.
    Life is the unexpected ...
