But totally predictable! I said in previous threads on Afghanistan that give it a year and the country would be back in the hands of the Taliban. OK,so a year has passed. The last British troops left in October 2014, it is now December 2015 and my prediction is so far, astray by two months!
The Afghan national army and police are going the same way as the Iraqi army and police, they are reverting to type! All those billions of pounds in training and equipment we and the US provided, all those lives of our troops lost and for what?
Afghanistan will be a basket case again within the next year, what will happen to all of the expensive western military equipment? The Taliban and daesh must be rubbing their hands with glee at the thought of all that ordnance coming their way!
Why do we never learn?
To put it crudely, you can't polish a turd!
