Afghan war unwinnable
10:50am Monday 30th April 2012 in Letters
I agree with K Hill (Oxford Mail ViewPoints, April 18) that we should bring home the troops from Afghanistan.
The huge amount of money saved could support bereaved families. There are about 450 children left with a single parent due to the Iraq and Afghan wars.
More help is needed for soldiers surviving life-changing injuries.
Secondly, possibly more help is required to resettle forces personnel into civilian life.
There are many individuals homeless or in prison. Many turn to drugs or alcohol.
I feel we are fighting a long, unwinnable war in Afghanistan.
