" A former army major has resigned as a parliamentary aide to Defence Secretary Bob Ainsworth, criticising the government's strategy in Afghanistan.

Labour MP Eric Joyce said the UK could no longer justify the growing casualty toll in Afghanistan by saying the war would prevent terrorism back home. "

agreed ^^^^^^^

hopefully it will spur someone "in charge" to actually act like one of the leading countries in the world and provide sufficent troops, equipment, veichles/jets/choppers, decent living and washing facilites.
