I know you are passionate about the war in Afghanistan and, to some degree, I agree with you, but, and I say this with care, you could put a number of questions to the general public and get differing answers all depending on how you put the questions. For instance, if you asked the straightforward question "Do you want our troops out of Afghanistan?" the answer would almost certainly be "Yes"
Then if you asked " Under what conditions?" then the answers would become more complex I think!
Some would answer "No conditions, just bring them home unscathed"
Others would answer " When the job is done"
Yet more would say "When the Afghan people want us to leave" and there would be many various answers surrounding those already stated.
I would also suggest that there are few ’conchies’ amongst those who just want our troops out. The majority of our people are compassionate and caring about our troops
This is an emotive subject and will continue to be so for a long time yet.
