We should stay in Afghanistan

The death toll of our soldiers mounts and pressure from public opinion increases pressure on Brown to withdraw our boys. I do not agree with this sentiment.

Brown says we went there after 9/11 to catch the perpetrators. Osama, if alive, is still in hiding. There is no doubt the Taliban are his people. Combating them should be extended to their Pakistan homeland not be stopped.

Afghanistan was at civil war before the Taliban era. This is normality for the country. Remove the troops and the Afghans will be killing even more of their people. Let the Taliban win and you allow oppression, especially of women, and the further persecution of Christians.

My friends work in this country. Remove troops. War. No more Christian voluntary agency work.

There is a price to pay and we should fight on.
