Afghanistan - Troops out, says poll
WORKERS, DECEMBER 2008 ISSUE
With the occupation of Afghanistan mired in crisis, a recent BBC opinion poll showed that 68 per cent of the British population want the troops out of Afghanistan. For under-24s the figure was 75 per cent.
Despite this Gordon Brown looks set to support calls for an intensification of the war by NATO forces, with Britain sending more troops. Since the so-called liberation in 2001, tens of thousands of civilians and 125 British soldiers have been killed.
