Brit General: Force alone is not the answer!

If Brit General feels his government not supporting peace side of supporting troops risking all. Do we need more troops in Afghanistan if not backed up with actions for peace Afghans desire?

Afghan critic quits top Army role

A senior commander who led British troops in Afghanistan has resigned after bitter clashes with the Government

over the war.


Major-General Andrew Mackay, recently appointed General Officer commanding
Scotland, Northern Ireland and Northern England, had spoken of his dismay at
the "inadequate support" given to troops and the "lack of
clear policy" in the conflict.

The commander was disillusioned with what he considered to be a failure to
carry out adequate reconstruction and development in Helmand. He had said
privately that British soldiers risking their lives in the conflict had been
let down by the Government in carrying out the vital tasks necessary to win
over the local population.
