*True costs of the Afghan War – really staggering.

"The soaring cost of Britain's military campaign in Afghanistan is laid bare today, as a comprehensive analysis reveals that the cost of fighting the Taliban has passed £12bn. An Independent on Sunday assessment of the "hidden costs" of fighting since the Taliban was ousted in 2001 reveals that the bill works out at £190 for every man, woman and child in the UK – and would pay for 23 new hospitals, 60,000 new teachers or 77,000 new nurses."

AND THE MILITARY, THE GOVERNMENT AND THEIR MINDLESS LETTER WRITERS AND COMMENTATORS CALL FOR MORE MONEY TO BE SPENT!! Hundreds of servicemen will have to spend the rest of their life injured in body and mind, while the damage we have inflicted on Afghanistan will be remembered for generations.
