I would say it was more like a poisoned chalice than a baton. This has been going on nearly as long as both world wars and still no end in sight.

You would say that, Fink. In fact, you would say anything in order to appear contentious and controversial, because you're an attention-seeking whore... :roll:

Anyway, keep safe Royal. Safe return, one and all. :salut:

Your predictable response confirms my suspicions - and the "truth" you speak of is your own interpretation of it, formed without evidence to substantiate it. As per feckin' usual... :?

Blah Blah Blah anyone with half a brain cell knows that there is no end in sight; we did not learn our lessons from history where Afghanistan is concerned.

If you don't realise that then you are an even more guileless than I thought you were.
