Bring them home

The war in Afghanistan is Britain's fourth. It is unwinnable - there is no military solution..

The Dutch will probably be withdrawing their troops from August after their Labour Party opposed keeping the country's troops in Afghanistan beyond 2010.

Ian Traynor writes:
The Dutch Labour party's vehement opposition to remaining in Afghanistan is popular, bringing it instant opinion poll gains.
The same would happen in the UK if the government set a date for bringing the troops home. Most polls of public opinion on the war show that there is a strong majority for ending it as soon as possible.
