A war after a war, a war before a war — 1 Comment

  1. Your thoughts on Afghanistan are often echoed by my husband. He knows a lot about geography and history, and has always said that if the Russians couldn’t deal with the Afghans, then no other country will. He’s probably right. I don’t profess to know much about the reasons for all these wars, or why America seem to think they are the answer to every other country’s problems. We have all seen the sad pictures of British soldiers coming back to RAF Brize Norton, then their coffins being driven through the streets of Wooten Basset, it is shocking and sad to think of all the young lives lost, for what?? I heard Obama talking the other day about ‘holding off ‘ on Syria, is he planning to strike there next?? I hope not. There has to be an end to all this conflict around the world, don’t ask me how, but my thoughts and many like me, think that all the troops in Afghanistan should be sent home, and let them sort it out themselves. We moan and groan here every day about little things that ‘bug’ us. We should be so thankful that we live in a reasonably harmonious society, and we are not being shot at, or starving. Notwithstanding the odd gun fire in the North, but overall, we have a very quiet life, and should be glad of it. The first world war was supposed to be the war to end all wars, so, what happened????
