Ask Mr Kipling

Before we send anymore British troops into an increasingly futile and highly risky conflict in Afghanistan, I rather think that our political leaders should be forced to watch the video clip below, in popular circulation both here and abroad, which illustrates rather well, the nature of the forces ranged against us in the region and their enthusiasm for the fight, in Afghanistan, Iraq and anywhere else come to that!

"Everyone here (Afghanistan) is convinced about jihad and to sacrifice his life, Once they sign in with us (Taleban), they do not need any special kind of indoctrination. They simply are to be clad with a jacket laden with dynamite sticks and to blow themselves up next to the target."

Rudyard Kipling knew all about Afghanistan and it hasn't changed that much a century later it seems.
