    What should be done about Afghanistan ?

    After Obama promised another 30,000 American soldiers to the war in Afghanistan and Brown promised another 50 British soldiers and asked the UN for more too, do you believe that we can actually achieve our goals there by sending more and more of our troops into harms way in that seemingly unappreciative country ?

    That's the ten thousand dollar question Paps and it is not one that is easy to answer.

    Before we or the Americans can see this war starting to come to an end we are going to have to see the ordinary people of Afghanistan giving the allies the kind of support that will cut out the desires of the Taliban and Al-Quaeda.

    Without total local support this war will never end and there will come a time when the allies will simply have to decide to cut and run.

    Allah help the ordinary people of Afghanistan then.
