A decade of war in Afghanistan has been marked with protests on the streets of London and elsewhere. During that time 382 of our service personnel have lost their lives. Some 262 have suffered injuries classified as “very serious”, and a further 272 have been “seriously injured”.
A spokesman for 10 Downing Street has admitted that David Cameron’s undertaking to withdraw all British troops from Afghanistan is untrue and that they will stay there “for as long as is necessary.”
The horrific death toll of British troops in the unwinnable and probably illegal war in Afghanistan rose to 322 today as the ConDem government announced that even more of your tax money will now be spent in that country.
