So now the Western governments admit that we, the people, were right and they were wrong. We could never win in Afghanistan and shouldn't have been there in the first place. Was it ever about the Taleban or was it all about poppies?
Either way we, the taxpayers, are now to pay a multi-million pound ransom over the next few years to the Taleban so that we can bring our troops home. So terrorism doesn't pay? It does if you're the Taleban or the IRA. I suppose there's hope yet for the British couple being held by Somali pirates.
I've been wondering about a few business ideas for some time now, this is a very interesting concept. Oops, better be careful, don't want the door kicking down at 4-00am and the neighbours woken up by a police helicopter overhead. Then again, it's a small price to pay when I can get a load of cash to stop being a naughty boy.
