Even if we're not in Afghan,
we'll be somewhere,
so don't worry christomo,
you'll be able to prove yourself.

I'd say about 20 years maybe,
just hopefully it won't be as long as 'The Troubles',
as our kids will be going Afghan.

Yea i would agree the Mod will have more experience with this matter. Tho if the enemy could afford army uniforms and stopped hiding with civilians then this war would be over next year...

I think the war will end when NATO finally realise that you can't win this war, as the Taliban are fighting for their beliefs which means that they'll show no fear and they'll keep on fighting.

Even if there was 10 taliban and 10 million troops, I think the 10 taliban would rather fight to the death rather than surrender the war.

So that may be the problem to this war... and just wait for the US to transfer their 100'000 troops from Iraq to Afghanistan

Thats the thing that puts me off. Is that the taliban have been shooting a rifle since they were children and most marines have only shot a rifle since they gone in RM training.

Yea true an ak47 is so unaccurate. But these guys have guns in their life, but like you said the Marines are the ones that get the expert training.

they come from all over , some even from britain as i sure most of u have heard about. some of them are angry poppy farmers. some come from anywhere that is a muslim country - for the sole purpose of becoming a martyr. thats why they are a difficult enemy - they want to die!
