British death toll hits 100 in Afghanistan
A hundred British soldiers are now dead as a result of the war against Afghanistan. According to Air-Chief Marshall Sir Jock Stirrup, they died in a "noble endeavour". The Air-Marshall went on to say that "parts of Afghanistan which were once lawless, there is now governance and rule of law. Across the country, more than seven million children are now in school and increasing numbers of people have access to healthcare."

Actually they died so that Tony Blair and his Nu-Labour gang could continue to pretend that Britain is a great imperial power. Afghanistan will remain the way it is so long as foreign armies enforce the foreigners' writ. Once they leave, then the country will sink back into medieval barbarism.

The notion that we are all post-modern multiculturalists is something that only a Nu-Labour supporter could believe. The Exile is only sorry that a hundred British troops have had to die to ensure that this truism got rammed home.

So basically you're saying the 'savages' in Afghanistan are incapable of maintaining a civilised society if it wasn't for British and American troops being there.

Hmmmm. Yet if you'd said the same thing about Kenya in the 50's, you'd have been called a racist, an imperialist etc. etc.

What I sad was that the country "will remain the way it is until the foreigners leave". The point is that they must leave and gain nothing from their invasion.

Hardly an imperialist perspective.

This may all be true, but the word "imperialist" seems to turn people's brains to custard. I don't see what the hell is wrong with imperialism, apart from the fact that it isn't always practicable.

In the meantime I'm glad that our boys are doing their job protecting the (minority) fans of civilisation, and killing a lot more than 100 towelheads into the bargain.

Fine, you mention that to the families of "our boys" when said towelheads are back doing what they are good at to each other, and said families are asking why their men died.

Look, the last chance of a decent dewogification programme - do you like that concept? I just made it up - vanished when the sort of secular folks who supported the USSR got chopped.

I had a great uncle who served in the 3rd Afghan War. Said the buggers were using Martini-Henry rifles captured in the 2nd... They started off fighting the Ruskies using Lee-Enfield rifles taken from Great-Uncle Ned and his mates, and then used AK47s which they captured or made in workshops. You are not going to turn that lot into what you want.

Naah, the enemy is at home. Always has been.

Oh come on lads.
We have no chance in Afgahnistan. It's a total waste of time and money, that the UK doesn't have.

Afghanistan produces 90% of the global heroin supply.

If it's so full of governance and the rule of law, there's no way it could supply heroin on global scales.

There's so much money, that you're never going to win this war. The drug dealers control that country, and it would be stupid to suppose you'd regain control using "police" or army against the heavy mob.

Yeah, I forgot that one! The Taleban forbade the production of the poppy crop and their writ was listened to or else.

Along comes Uncle Sam and his poodles and just like that, as Tommy Cooper used to say, the poppy fields are back in full swing.

What the westerners are doing is allowing this crop to be grown in the hope that the local rulers will cease allowing their men to take pot shots at the said westerners.

As you said, if the country was being governed in the way we understand governance, that would not be happening.

Nice one!
