The killing of five British soldiers by an Afghan policeman raised fresh doubts yesterday about Britain’s mission in Helmand.
Senior political, diplomatic and military figures warned that public support for the British presence was in danger of collapse without a clear and freshly defined strategy.
There is no support for this war in the US either, at least among thinking Americans.
Going into the 9th year of this meatgrinder, the only people "winning" are the drug lords and companies which offer private mercenaries.
Why would anyone in their right mind believe that this war should continue for one more second?!?!?!?
