Today it has been announced that we will withdraw from Afghanistan and President Obama is predicting that the American forces will also withdraw according to a timeline. What the hell is going on? We are at war ...we either win or we don't. This is not a computer game because too many families in this country have lost loved ones. Even worse so many have been the cream of the crop!
How can they decide on a date to end the Afghan war? We have lost so many good men! Does this mean, as I blogged so many months ago, that this war was contrived to keep the army out of the UK? (Dr) John Reid who originally sent our troops into Afghanistan with his infamous statement 'In and out without a a shot being fired' should now be held to account.
The Political Class who willy nilly sacrifice the lives of British soldiers are moving on. They realise that the Afghan war cannot be won so they are moving onto Libya. All the time they are reducing our armed forces because the EU ( our political masters) know that the British army is a threat to their ultimate domination.
Believe you me the British Army is our final weapon. Anyone who signs up to the colours in this day and age is a patriot. A patriot is the antipathy of our Political Class. They really fear British patriots because these are the people who love their country and are prepared to die for their country. Hell they don't want people like that!
So I find it repugnant that our PM can predict the timeframe for our withdrawal. I also find it repugnant that President Obama can follow up with his own plans for withdrawal. Have we fought this war for a reason? Have we fought this war to defeat the Taliban/Al Quadia/local insurgents/tribesmen or what? Have they ever defined the opposition and how come we can drop bombs on them/ use heavy artillery on them/ or push our best troops against them and not make a dent in their armoury?
I am sorry but we have lost too many brave men who must be honoured before we pull out in ignominy. We cannot pull out without a result. Too many of our troops have lost their lives to support what appears to be a lost cause. This Political Class have no shame so it is no surprise that when they called for voluntary redundacy in the British Army they got double the volunteers!
Come home guys and fight on your own streets. We will soon need all the patriots that we can muster!
